    I have been working at Pandora Media (More than 3 years)


    Pandora has a really great culture. Despite massive growth in the number of employees, the company is still generous when it comes to offering new and existing employees equity.


    As the company has grown there are a lot of teams, and overlapping efforts. Sometimes roles and responsibilities can be a bit fuzzy. As the company has grown and more teams and stakeholders are involved in decisions, things are taking longer to get done. The company seems to be addressing this through trying to keep working groups lean and nimble.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on the people and culture, continue to be as transparent as possible about company moves/decisions.

    Easy Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Pandora Media (New York, NY) in November 2015.


    Applied online through LinkedIn, had a conversation with a recruiter who told me she'd finish her preliminary interviews and get back to me in a few days. Still waiting week + later ... You have to wonder about a place that sends you several emails, leaves you several vms about a position, makes a HUGE deal about the company culture and what a great place and people there are, and then doesn't have the courtesy to phone you back about your status. If the HR (HR!) is run this way -- cannot take seconds to send you some kind of email update (even automated would work when, I suppose, they can't get anything out of you -- imagine what it's like actually being there.
