    I worked at XM Satellite Radio Holdings full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - cafe in dc office
    - trips to nyc
    - free performances
    - being around the music
    - stock options - issued in the leu of bonus

    Cons

    - unfair rules where some employees can telecommute while others are required to be in the office even if both are performing the same duties
    - no advancement for women. one can be in the same job for years and not get a promotion, while men tend ot get ahead much sooner
    - small salary adjustments, and rarely a bonus
    - no learning opportunities, no training

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that women are just as capable and educated as men in the workforce. And often times the work is carried on the shoulders of women, while the credit always goes to the man in charge. Promote gender equality.
