Pros

To think satellite one would assume that there is a massive team working on this heavily shorted company. There is not, a bare bones staff of boomers and gen X'ers dominate the work environment. Generation Y is slowly making it's way in however assistants and and associates are not being hired and the labor is filled with unpaid interns. One can spend anywhere between thirty to sixty hours in the office. The Senior Managers...they are very protective and do not share success well. You're forced to sign over all intellectual property to the firm in exchange for letters of recommendations future employers will never receive and the Human Resource department will never return calls. Needless to say they needed B+ to A work from me and all I got was this t-shirt.

Cons

Zero recognition, position isn't specialized. You will be doing a lot of different work in a lot of different fields. Fun and all but you feel like you have to please everyone. But no one cares or thinks about you the moment the internship is over.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Forget about Howard Stern and all those celebrities. Forget about selling radios...siriusxm is an experience, it is a lifestyle choice it could be revolutionary if the company wanted to be current. Get Mel out too.

    Review the competency of the senior management team (especially SVP and VP titles,) with 360-style performance reviews
    Invest in training and make training a part of the annual performance review
