    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Pandora Media full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Bands and singers come to play acoustic sets 2-3 times per week
    - People recognize the company you work for when you tell them
    - Good health coverage
    - PERGs (Pandora Employee Groups) - some fun ones out there... beer drinking perg

    Cons

    - As the company has grown, the company culture that I imagine once existed is long gone
    - Issues with management across the board - micromanagement, giving new employees unrealistic expectations of potential growth opportunities, too much focus on small tasks vs. the career development of employees
    - Floors 6 and 7 are the newest floors. With that expansion, floors 15 and 16 are now overlooked in multiple ways
    - No compensation for commuting expenses. Considering the office is in Oakland, compensation of BART or a shuttle would be a plus
    - For a company that was founded on peoples love for music, there are too many people that have no interest in music

    Advice to Management

    The role of a manager is to help their employees in any way they can when it comes to career development, learning, and growth. Managers here focus more on mundane day-to-day tasks and details instead of providing support for employees and better preparing their work force for the next step in their career. My advice to management? Do a complete overhaul of current management staff, management style, and responsibilities of a manager.
