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

    Pros

    Free radio subscription Summer Fridays Stock Options

    Cons

    Racist Cronies Low pay Buy your own radio Experience will vary depending on the department you are at. Some pay huge bonuses and give good raises. My department was lead by a very racist person. My leader had his/her own cronies and rewarded them tremendously. They came up with my leader and their skills were not up to par but was protected by my leader. There is a lot of shadiness going on in HR. The person who does employee relations for the corporate side is very lazy and inappropriate. Loves to gossip and extremely unprofessional. Some of my friends that were termed told me she didn’t even explain to them how to collect unemployment benefits when they asked. Benefits team suck like hell. They messed up my benefits so many times. My W2 was wrong one year and had to be reissued after I had already filed my taxes. They are complete idiots. They also messed up my domestic partnership benefits. They gave me stock one year. Very little but made a big deal out of it. The stock is not doing well but money is money.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of your HR team.


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

    I worked at SiriusXM part-time (More than 5 years)

    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

    -Having the opportunity to meet different people within the company. -Co-workers help you get through the nonsense that management does

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees more & make changes

    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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

    Correct staffing issues and part-time staff pay.

    Advice to Management

    none

    Be better about prioritizing initiatives.
