    I have been working at SiriusXM full-time

    Pros

    easy commute and nice office location in NYC. Big corp culture and paid well in general. easy access to advanced technologies.

    Cons

    very limited promotion opportunities. Not much of work and life balance. performance goal was not set for reviews and many manages staying forever.

    Advice to Management

    Need to promote the true value and recognize people who contribute to the projects, but not the managers. Need to set realistic performance goals.

    Pros

    Lots of great and smart people in the office. Summer Fridays.

    Cons

    Some departments such as strategic analytics, racial discrimination in hiring and promotions

    Advice to Management

    The strategic analytics department should go through an audit and most certainly there will be a pattern discovered. Please rectify this as word does get around. Sirius XM does pride itself of welcoming diversity. Company should ensure that all departments share same vision.

    I worked at SiriusXM full-time

    Pros

    A chance to move up in the company, good pay, decent benefits

    Cons

    The HR department at the Irving, Texas location singles out employees, gossips about private employee information, act in an unethical manner when they do act, and pigeon-hole employees into low-level positions because the HR person believes they cannot do the job based on gut instinct. It is ridiculous.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house in the Irving, TX HR department and you will see morale rise quickly.

    I have been working at SiriusXM full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Company is making a lot of money, in a good position, therefore job seems stable. Unique opportunity to work on a lot of channels in different formats. Not many other places you can have an experience like SiriusXM. All in all, it's hard to find somewhere else to work that offers such a unique, successful platform.

    Cons

    Very little turnover in programming departments, therefore many of the channels are run by radio dinosaurs. There is little room to move up and promotions are seldom given. Talk side is unfocused and many program directors/producers are underpaid, with paltry raises given. Top music programming exec is a genius but also an extreme micro-manager. President of entertainment engages in shady "favor based" deals, creating an atmosphere where there are favorites who reap all the rewards... this isn't smart business in 2018. Office is incredibly crowded, creating a loud, tense, and gossipy work environment. CEO is smart and savvy, but way behind on getting SXM in people's pockets. App is behind the times.

    Advice to Management

    Consider offering some early retirements to programmers - old men shouldn't be pioneering an effort to reach a hip, streaming generation... without innovation and promoting younger people this company will get left behind. Spotify is lightyears ahead of SiriusXM becoming a 'cool' brand and seems to have a younger, more diverse staff. SiriusXM needs to focus on streaming in order to win, but some higher ups in music programming aren't as tech savvy or brand savvy as they should be.

    Micro-manage staff less. Allow them to work from home, encourage gym and coffee breaks, add some startup-style perks (Spotify has wine and beer in their kitchens, fyi). Trust your staff and they will trust you back and perform better. We aren't curing cancer here, we're trying to make people have fun...so we should be having fun too. This company has such potential to be great!

    I worked at SiriusXM part-time

    Pros

    Really structured internship including lunch & learn sessions and career development assistance

    Cons

    Only speaking for the finance (budget) internship, the direct managers seem not really care about the interns maybe because this is a temporary position. The work is not challenging if you have basic knowledge of Excel. If you have worked for over 1 month, then you will know how to do most of the tasks because the rest will be repetitive. The managers care more about the technical skills - if you get the numbers right- than the business side of the work and your future career development. It'd be a great internship experience for freshmen/sophomores who don't have lots of business experience but not for the more senior level of students.
