    Pros

    Great mentors, excellent experience if you seek it, easy to adapt, welcoming and friendly environment, cool perks

    Cons

    Hard to tell whether experience as intern is relatable to that of a full time employee, sometimes would run out of things for you to do

    Advice to Management

    Be sure mentors have a plan for their interns, and perhaps a background check to see if that department actually needs intern help

    Pros

    Their programming is a great product and there are always artists dropping by. Tons of people with lots of energy and enthusiasm for the sake of the music. You can get a lot of responsibility with little prior experience.

    Cons

    A bit of factory, people can turn over quickly. There are your lifers and then everyone else. Early employees have it set and are often just milking it and counting the days to cashing out permanently. Everyone else is expendable.

    Advice to Management

    Care more for your staff.

    Pros

    Fair work / life balance; great co-workers across many non-programming departments; top-notch benefits

    Cons

    Stagnant in terms of personal growth - ascending inside department (or moving outside to another and exploring) is relatively tough.

    Advice to Management

    Not applicable

    Cons

    Stagnant in terms of personal growth - ascending inside department (or moving outside to another and exploring) is relatively tough.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in digital growth -- with the amount of subscribers there are, the digital properties should be more of a growth opportunity to give additional content to current subs, and a way to entice others to consider doing so.

  9. IT Internship

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

    Pros

    Gain valuable work experience.
    You are able to collaborate with your supervisor on different projects.
    It is a great learning environment because everyone is very friendly and open to answer questions.

    Cons

    I wasn't able to find anything negative.

    Advice to Management

    No advice is needed for management.

  10. Valuable entry level experience, but wasted too many years waiting for job growth.

    Pros

    Access to cool events (depending on department)
    Flexibility
    Networking
    Good camraderie among co-workers below senior management.

    Cons

    Senior management out of touch with the rest of the company.
    Poor communication.
    No room for growth.
    Lacks company culture.
    Programming in need of checks & balances.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in young talent within the company, stop throwing money at big name outsiders and grow your own people. You'll breed loyalty, repair company culture and strengthen the business if you start promoting from within rather than turn to outsiders that have no idea what they're walking into.

    I spent 5 years working for a company that despite recommendations from company bigwigs and all my immediate supervisors still couldn't place me in a full-time position. Since leaving I have been offered (without even an interview) three full-time positions at other music related ventures.

    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 Management

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