    Pros

    Great experience in the entertainment/radio industry while getting the chance to rub elbows with actors, musicians, athletes, etc. Laid back, creative environment.

    Use unpaid interns rather than hire entry-level employees. Not much opportunity for advancement.

    Invest in your interns.

    Pros

    The best and brightest in U.S. radio resides here.

    Cons

    SEVERE lack of upward mobility. Company progresses at a very slow pace. Stock is shorted more than any other on the stock market, resulting in stock option awards being worth very little.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a braintrust of non-executives. Listen to them. Believe it or not, they may have good or better ideas to be considered by the board and executive team.

    Pros

    Management and HR are really nice. Laid back atmosphere. Free beverages in the kitchen. Great brand name for resumes.

    Cons

    Unpaid internship. No reimbursements for expenses. Can be some down days where you don't do much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you don't pay your interns, at least reimburse then for travel and food. People will work harder if you do!

    Pros

    Depending on your management, flexibility, casual dress environment, decent pay. Work life balance, so far so good. I have a lot of cons but all depends on your manager.

    Cons

    Nearly 80% of your work is listening in meetings!!! They say mulitask during the conference calls, then why the heck are you even listening or participating in the conference calls ? I nearly have only max 2 hours to get ALL my work done and the other 6 hours is meetings/conferences call and then taking notes! I have not felt it too much but I think these meeting are a way for management to MICRO manage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    STOP THESE DAILY CONFERENCE CALLS/MEETINGS ! Send the email and the responsible parties who need to take action will respond or contact whomever! 30 people don't need to join every day! I guarantee you more work and projects will be completed. Think about it.

    Pros

    You are treated like a true employee. You won't find interns fetching coffee or being ignored! Although your intern experience may vary by department, you really are treated like royalty, as well as given assignments that significantly contribute to the company,

    Cons

    Easy to get lost in a sea of interns and employees, but the positive outweighed the negative.

    Pros

    There's an exciting energy as soon as you walk into the SiriusXM offices in Manhattan -- this is a company unlike any other. You are surrounded by talent, both who work there or who are there to appear on one of the countless programs and stations found on Sirius' dial.

    Cons

    "Well...this is radio. It doesn't pay well." That was what I was told by an HR representative when I was made my offer to come work for the company. I ended up taking the job since the process of getting the gig took so long anyway, but from day one, I felt very undervalued. Red tape seems to be the name of the game with management - things just do NOT get done in a timely fashion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Free soda and pretzels are nice, but the greatest perk of all is a salary that makes a person feel wanted.
