      Great people, but low salaries and no opportunity for advancement.

      Pros

      Great people, great culture! People here really are, genuinely nice. They work with you and help you if help is needed. Pandora is trying really hard to innovate. Great work/life balance. Of course there is politicking on the management level, but it is not as visible or as vicious as at some other companies.

      Cons

      The salaries are below average, it is impossible to get a raise, or advance your career. It could be because the turnover here is not huge (it picked up a little when SiriusXM acquired Pandora). It a great place to stay, be a lifer. But if you are looking to advance your career, it will not happen while you are here. It is really the 2-year tenure deal. Get in, get experience, get out.

      Pros

      I had a wonderful experience interning at Pandora -Great company culture -You're welcomed in as a part of the team (at least on my team they did) and they give you projects to personally manage -There is training and development -Higher ups make themselves available to you if you ask -You get a peek behind the curtain at a large scale media company -They pay well -While you are there, you totally feel like a Pandora employee -You are assigned a mentor/ manager who is a resource and looks out for you -Get to network a bunch and meet other cool interns

      Cons

      -My incoming process was very disorganized and I nearly backed out of the internship all together based on that negative experience but once I actually arrived in the office it was a great. -It may be tricky to check out other teams if you have other interests

      Pros

      Great culture, upward mobility, work life balance, solid compensation, good free snacks. Also, the middle management is well trained. It's obviously a great resume builder and everyone loves pandora.

      Cons

      There aren't too many. I know some teams have it rougher than others. The client services team at pandora doesn't make commission like at other companies like Google, but that's one of the few draws.
