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

Pros

I worked with some great people, and you're selling a product people love and are passionate about.

Cons

Surprisingly patriarchal and old-fashioned management style. The economics are tight - it always seems like we're one day away from bankruptcy! Even within the tech team, there's very serious concern about the long-term validity of the product and business model.

Advice to Management

Be a little more innovative and fast-moving. Make your management style match the coolness of the brand itself.

    I have been working at SiriusXM full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    All job positions here sound important but many do not require a degree. I guess they make you feel more important that way but would be nice if the the pay reflects the title.

    Cons

    Had this job for quite a few years. Literally worked for peanuts after factoring in casual overtime. Feel sorry for the poor schlump who took this job after I left.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more for the required time needed for this job.

    I worked at SiriusXM full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Putting out premium product for niche audiences--which was my job--is highly rewarding work. Compensation and benefits are good, especially for more experienced people. The physical plant is top notch, and the work environment generally calm and supportive.

    Cons

    My impression is that junior hires are somewhat underpaid, though I haven't surveyed the competition. Company's marketing efforts aren't great and never have been. Top programming management has a very narrow vision.

    Advice to Management

    Try not to kill the golden goose while making changes you THINK might work.
