    Pros

    SiriusXM has a great halth benefits package. As a Response agent, they offer flexible working hours with paid time-off and voluntary time-off. Starting pay is significantly above minimum wage and average for an entry level job in this area.

    Cons

    Response agent responsibilities are limited and redundant. Opportunities for advancement exist, but are incredibly competitive and come open seldom.

    Advice to Management

    Your strongest support will come from your subordinates. Upper management is difficult to reach at best, and obstinate at worst.

    Pros

    Great coworkers, fun to be involved in what goes on the air

    Cons

    Bad management, feels impossible to hire good people, little room for advancement, terrible salary. They continue to want more and more without adding jobs or increasing budgets. Work/life balance is not so great. DC office feels like the ugly stepchild to NYC office.

    Advice to Management

    Hire better people and take the time to fully train them. Do a better job of communicating with employees that are in different cities.

    Pros

    Was able to engage in all aspects of producing a morning talk radio show, including operating the board and various audio softwares. Gave me great experience to put on my resume

    Sometimes too much down time.

    Continue with hands-on experience. That's what truly matters in the real world.

    Pros

    Great health benefits, fairly good schedule flexibility

    Cons

    Poor salary, telecommute options are based on if management likes you, career advancement is almost non-existent if you aren't hand picked by senior management, There is no definitive mechanism for reviews therefore bonuses/promotions are often not merit based; cronyism- specifically in Channel Management.; corporate environment is horrible, creating lazy and miserable workforce.

    Advice to Management

    Speak to your employees informally. Stop wasting talent in the lower ranks. Truly discover what your subordinates are capable of instead of your preconceived notions based on race/gender.
