    I worked at SiriusXM full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Some of the best decision making processes I've seen in my career were at Sirius XM. Respectable salaries and fun product to be a part of.

    Cons

    At the time, no formal in-house training program for new hires or junior employees at the sites I worked.

    I worked at SiriusXM as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your interns.

    I have been working at SiriusXM as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    I was an intern so i had the opportunity to learn the ins and out of the satellite radio industry. The office had a great atmosphere, and the best part was free drinks!

    Cons

    While everyone the office is very open and talkative, its hard to grow within the company. I thought that the transition from intern to employee would be easier but it was not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider looking more into hiring interns that can bring more to the table. Not just interns that interned there longer than others.

    I worked at SiriusXM part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Fun, friendly environment. Great learning experience. Flexible schedule.

    No pay or even a stipend for food or travel. Be prepared to spend if you are a commuter. Tedious work at times.

    Pros

    It's a job! Nice people and it helps to work somewhere you can be proud of the product.

    Cons

    Executive and director level employees are too "busy" or "important" to take time to listen to good ideas from lower level employees. In other cases, senior level people take credit for hard work that their staff does then passes the buck if something goes wrong. You will not be mentored nor encouraged to mentor others.

    I have been working at SiriusXM full-time for more than 5 years

    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.

    I worked at SiriusXM as an intern for less than a year

    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!
