Pros

- Enthused co-workers who enjoy what they do
- Relaxed dress code & free beverages/snacks
- Free market for creativity for the sake of improving the quality of a broadcast
- Meet/Seeing celebs, artists, & athletes
- Will honestly learn the basics of radio and more if willing to take initiative

Cons

- Will never be paid what your actually worth
- Will be overworked and bombarded w/ the work of others in your dept if you're an efficient employee
- Disconnect between Senior Management, Mid-Management, and general staff
- There's a strong political/clique-ish quality about the company which hinders cross platform development
- Most people will advance ahead of others b/c of personal preference
- Is not the most diverse workplace for minorities and women
- Raises/bonuses generally aren't worth the effort put into achieving them

Advice to Management

The company's board of directors need to completely clean house in Senior Management and find people who value the importance of the true machine behind SiriusXM, which are the employees on both the business and production side. Not the overpaid jocks who blatantly disrespect the company and it's brand when things don't their way for their own monetary gain.

    company kept everyone on pins and needles, everyone was kept in the dark.
    Growth for the company has been slow and very costly.

    Advice to Management

    get rid of Mel Karmazin and focus on real music programing and not lowest common detonator music. No need to test music
