Pros

SIRIUS is an insanely laid-back atmosphere where creativity is not only a huge plus, but largely promoting. You're constantly moving and there's never a lull.

Cons

SIRIUS is a huge company. It's easy to get lost inside that world. But I suppose the con is just the same as the pro. Working here requires a lot of hard work and barely no hand holding. You've GOT to know how to do your job, otherwise you'll sink.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I really wouldn't have any advice. I think the company promotes strength and creativity in the work force. And really, what else is there besides doing what you love, representing what you love and getting good feedback?

    Pros

    If you have absolutely no work experience and are desperate for an internship, it's not too difficult to find one here - after all, you're unpaid, you won't have too much competition

    Cons

    This isn't a learning environment - people come to work here to get their stuff done and go home. Forget helping each other out. I've spoken to full-time employees who constantly have to wait hours and hours for their managers to show up in order to get their work done - meaning they end up staying at the office much later than the average employee. Employees are just concerned for themselves, and have very little interest in the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you're not going to pay your interns, treat them better. Free soda does not make up for the lack of learning, training, or respect that interns deal with.

    Working there is like hitting the glass ceiling early in your career and being expected to not want to breakthrough.

    Pros

    - Enthused co-workers who enjoy what they do
    - Relaxed dress code & free beverages/snacks
    - Free market for creativity for the sake of improving the quality of a broadcast
    - Meet/Seeing celebs, artists, & athletes
    - Will honestly learn the basics of radio and more if willing to take initiative

    Cons

    - Will never be paid what your actually worth
    - Will be overworked and bombarded w/ the work of others in your dept if you're an efficient employee
    - Disconnect between Senior Management, Mid-Management, and general staff
    - There's a strong political/clique-ish quality about the company which hinders cross platform development
    - Most people will advance ahead of others b/c of personal preference
    - Is not the most diverse workplace for minorities and women
    - Raises/bonuses generally aren't worth the effort put into achieving them

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company's board of directors need to completely clean house in Senior Management and find people who value the importance of the true machine behind SiriusXM, which are the employees on both the business and production side. Not the overpaid jocks who blatantly disrespect the company and it's brand when things don't their way for their own monetary gain.
