    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!

    Cons

    none, that I could not be on 5 different radio channels a day (I'm reaching here for a con)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Music Programming Internship

    I worked at SiriusXM

    Pros

    Great name to have on your resume. 90% of the time as an intern, you will be treated like an employee and not asked to do menial tasks like fetching coffee. As a programming intern, you will learn their editing systems, how to create show logs and assistant produce a show. Celebrity sightings are an every day luxury.

    Cons

    UNPAID. It is also extremely difficult to get a part time job w the company after your internship. The hours I worked were scattered because of my class schedule, so I often worked late hours, including weekends. When I wasn't in the studio, I was mostly working alone and had little interaction with other interns. I often felt very unappreciated by the team I was associated with. I was complimented by people working on other channels for my diligent work ethic and was poached by one channel to intern with them the following semester, but it was frustrating that my own boss failed to notice my hard work.
    Everyone seemed anxious and frazzled daily. The vibe I generally got from the paid employees was, that they were overworked and underpaid - which was a huge red flag.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your interns or at least offer a travel stipend. $26+/day for the train/bus adds up after 4 months!

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

    Pros

    Great benefits. Opportunity to learn a lot. Make many contacts. The people are all very experienced and there's stability, not a lot of people coming in and out.

    Cons

    Much is left to you to figure out. You really have to take the lead because there often is not a clear direction. it's a big company and it takes a lot to get noticed for your work. It is what you make it and you must work hard, often long hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People need to feel more included in the mission of the company but not just generalities. Each individuals should be made to understand his or her unique need.

    Sales and revenue driven organization. You can make a difference in your programs and overall performance of the company. Good befits, rewards for doing your job well.

    Cons

    Internal systems are inadequate and need much improvement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on developing the internal systems necessary to continue to grow the company. Listen to mid-level employees better.

    I worked at SiriusXM full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Innovative, high energy, friendly and passionate work environment. Often worked overtime, but seemed to even out eventually.

    Cons

    Very unprofessional management overall, though you may find a few hidden gems, the majority is looking out for #1 and the path of least resistance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow up. Make the choice to do the right thing even if it is the more difficult path. Lead in a way that makes you proud.

    Pros

    Work is interesting it's what I am familiar with although easy to learn.

    Cons

    Moral is low because of low pay for the amount of hours worked. After a long commute every day I'm exhausted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to better compete with free internet radio services.
