    I have been working at SiriusXM (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people at SiriusXM are awesome and creative; the location is terrific and the talent is top notch across every channel.

    Cons

    Compensation does not fit for living in Washington, DC and the extra work that producers are responsible for on a daily basis.

    Advice to Management

    Increase base salaries so that raises/bonuses mean even more. Hold all producers to the same standard.

    I worked at SiriusXM as an intern

    Pros

    Amazing boss and an amazing company to work for very laid back and "chill" attitude.

    Cons

    No pay for interns! Also, light work load.

    Advice to Management

    Paid interns or covering travel cost for interns!

    I worked at SiriusXM (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Many good associates to work with.

    Cons

    Survival seems to depend less on performance and more on one's ability to align with particular groups. People at director level tend to delegate too much responsibility to managers below them. Makes for confusion and - in the case of contractors - unpaid overtime. Can be a great lon term gig if you learn to "play the game".

    Advice to Management

    Force more meaningful interaction between director and "troops".

    I worked at SiriusXM as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Exciting environment, lots of opportunity to create the right role. If you love radio and music and being in the heart of NYC then it's a solid place to be each day.

    Cons

    The long range business plan seemed dicey. But they continue to pull it off. Great service but it seems there is a cap to how many subscribers they will get and loads of competition.

    Advice to Management

    Explore unique ways of expanding the business - think less about Wall Street and more about the customer. There are untapped ways of providing new content services to them.
