      Pros

      Competitive salaries and the best work/life/balance I've ever had in my professional career

      Cons

      Quite a few leadership changes over the past few years, which has lead to some organizational changes, including layoffs.

      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.
