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

    Pros

    Always projects to do, while still keeping a consistent work pattern. I was always motivated to come to work everyday.

    Cons

    Wish I can intern here more than two semesters!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wish there was more space for feedback after finishing certain projects to go over the pros and cons of my work.

    I have been working at SiriusXM full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good vacation benefits and flexibility with time off. Health care is great too. Has been a good place to get experience within the corporate world and the people who work there are fun and creative.

    Cons

    Little career movement. Management does't seem to have a clear plan for decisions or at least keeps employees in the dark about it. Poor compensation. As an employee there of nearly five years, it's been frustrating getting a solid answer from management about how to advance within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think employees today are looking for more transparency. It helps employees know what common goal they are looking for and rewards them for exceeding expectations.

  3. This company is very laissez-faire and stale growth. You have the opportunity to create but with no support.

    Pros

    Room for growth and company hires from within. Majority of employees work with the company for a long-time (there's little turnover).

    Cons

    Salary is below average for the field for full-time staff. Part-time staff is typically expected to work beyond their scheduled hours (off the clock).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Correct staffing issues and part-time staff pay.

  8. I worked at SiriusXM

    Pros

    Everything, I loved it all. Even the extra hours I spent researching for segments or creating my own original segments I LOVED IT ALL!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at SiriusXM (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Large Infrastructure with numerous technology learning opportunities
    Opportunities for lateral and upward movement
    Excellent pay, vacation and benefits

    Cons

    SiriusXM is a Media company and because of that mindset the IT department sometimes does not get the resources it needs in a timely fashion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management sometimes struggles to engage employees as more than workers. Often don't feel there is a great "culture" here or that you are more than a number.
