    Pros

    SIRIUS is an insanely laid-back atmosphere where creativity is not only a huge plus, but largely promoting. You're constantly moving and there's never a lull.

    Cons

    SIRIUS is a huge company. It's easy to get lost inside that world. But I suppose the con is just the same as the pro. Working here requires a lot of hard work and barely no hand holding. You've GOT to know how to do your job, otherwise you'll sink.

    Advice to Management

    I really wouldn't have any advice. I think the company promotes strength and creativity in the work force. And really, what else is there besides doing what you love, representing what you love and getting good feedback?

    I have been working at SiriusXM full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good salary. Awesome bonuses. Management that manages but stays out of the way of productivity. The IT department is very fast about getting you the resources you need. As with any company, there is some BS. But here, it's very manageable and a very acceptable trade-off for the general awesomeness of the place.

    Management is very open to trying and using new technology. SXM is not a software company, per se, but I feel like the company has a much better understanding of what software guys like me do and how important it is to their business. They seem to have the mindset of a small company without the scarcity of resources usually seen in smaller companies.

    Cons

    IT department higher-ups seem to like to dictate policy without knowing or caring how it impacts developers, especially those who have to work with embedded hardware. This very common in the industry, though, and for the most part, you can still get your job done. The selection of medical benefits could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, but rein in those IT security people a little.

    Pros

    They have the best facilities that I have ever seen in my professional career within radio (Eckington PL NE in Washington, D.C.)
    Everyone around here is very professional and devoted. Good benefits for employees.

    Cons

    No complains at this point.

    Pros

    Allowed Managers to enjoy their positions

    Cons

    Sirius sometimes too stringent while XM radio was calmer and optimistic

    Advice to Management

    Allow broadcast employees to be their own personalities on the air,

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

    Pros

    By far the most happy employees of anywhere i ever worked, just walking through the building everyone says hi to eachother.

    Cons

    It takes a long time to move up, They had a hiring freeze for a while and i had to move, couldnt afford the city on an hourly wage- New York

    Advice to Management

    keep the lookout for good talent instead of just promoting who you know
