    I worked at SiriusXM as an intern

    Pros

    Amazing boss and an amazing company to work for very laid back and "chill" attitude.

    Cons

    No pay for interns! Also, light work load.

    Advice to Management

    Paid interns or covering travel cost for interns!

    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 as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Exciting environment, lots of opportunity to create the right role. If you love radio and music and being in the heart of NYC then it's a solid place to be each day.

    Cons

    The long range business plan seemed dicey. But they continue to pull it off. Great service but it seems there is a cap to how many subscribers they will get and loads of competition.

    Advice to Management

    Explore unique ways of expanding the business - think less about Wall Street and more about the customer. There are untapped ways of providing new content services to them.

    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

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

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

    Great working culture. Managers are intelligent and open to new ideas. Free coffee, soda and pretzels.

    Work/life balance is not great. Depending on the department you work for, expect mediocre co-workers, doing mediocre/rushed work.

    Advice to Management

    Focus less on numbers and more on quality.

    I have been working at SiriusXM full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I've worked at the with trends across multiple offices, and I've found that nearly everyone is both competent in there job and personable.

    Cons

    There is little room for growth. In most departments the company is kept sort of employees and full of work. There is never a slow day.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to create real opportunities for growth. Promoting in place doesn't full anyone. Your policy on bonuses and stock awards is great, at times it has been the reason that I start with the company.

    Pros

    great managers, very knowledgeable, don't need experience, room for growth, lots of different departments you can transfer to if you don't like your current department, great training.

    Cons

    I did not like that some of the managers are micro-managers. It does not give one the proper means of growth. sometimes i would notice favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    This is a great company to work for. Would recommend acknowledging achievements and hard work more often. Would recommend less micro-managing.
