    I worked at Pandora Media full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Working for a company which makes such an amazing consumer product loved by everyone
    - Some cool/smart people

    Cons

    - Struggling with growth and feels understaffed in certain departments
    - Compensation and benefits pale in comparison to other bay area tech companies
    - No career trajectory in certain departments and promotions aren't always based on performance
    - Quality of leadership is inconsistent

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the number of unhappy employees and take the exit interviews seriously. There's a reason individuals can feel frustrated/unsettled/overwhelmed/underappreciated and that feedback should be considered so as to help correct the current culture course, cultivate loyalty, and continue building a sense of community among employees. Also consider making the interviews much more rigorous to ensure you're bringing in the best talent.
