    I have been working at SiriusXM full-time

    Pros

    non music side can be very flexible on time you come in and leave as long as you get your work done

    Cons

    constantly changing priorities can lead to fire drills that are "because someone needs this number"

    Advice to Management

    learn to say no more to "worthless projects". try and grow employees from within.

    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".

    Pros

    great product, the company is making money, but theyre not resting on their laurels and always striving to do better, whether in programming, marketing or IT

    Cons

    way too many silos, and the fiefdoms dont trust each other

    Advice to Management

    break down the interior walls and get everyone marching to the same plan

    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.

    Advice to Management

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

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

    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.
