A great place to work, if it lasts.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Silver Spring, MD

Pros1) Great people working together as a team.
2) Reasonable compensation and good benefits.
3) Lots of opportunity to learn different aspects of the business.
4) An exciting line of business, where you work with a mix of really interesting mix of people, from satellite engineers to radio personalities.
5) A global company where you are exposed to many different cultures.

Cons1) A shaky business model with a doubtful future (I guess that can be said of all satellite radio right now).
2) A global company where you have to be ready to work with people in many different time zones. This can have a negative effect on your work/life balance.

Advice to Senior Management1) Give up on India, focus on Europe.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
