    I worked at SiriusXM full-time

    Pros

    In my experience, there were no pros. Actually there was one, the salary, for me, was a good jump up but everything comes with a price and here, that's your mental health.

    Cons

    I saw red flags from the beginning but gave it a shot anyway. I didn't even complete the online application and they contacted me. Either I have awesome skills or they were desparate. Not to put myself down but after starting, they were desparate. Probably because no one wants to work for the department I was in or for those that run the department. The phone interviews were horrible along with unprofessional.

    They don't care about/value their employees even when you voice your concerns. Lack of communication, engagement, involvement and organization run rampant. There was no on boarding/training at all, they just throw you at a desk. I should have been involved more but like I said, even after voicing my concerns, I was still ignored and left to twiddle my thumbs.

    It was mentally taxing, almost from the get-go, to the point it got really difficult to get out of bed in the mornings to go in. All around, it's a very unhealthy envrionment. I've heard the same things from others who still work there (God knows why) and others who used to work there. Even outside recruiters have heard these and other negative things about the company.

    So in closing, believe me, find another place to work. You'll be a lot happier.

    Advice to Management

    Upper Mgmt needs to LISTEN and really make changes.

    Pros

    Challenging work that values proactive initiative if you can deliver. Compensation and benefits package are very competitive. Also very cool to work for a company with the name recognition that SiriusXM has.

    Cons

    As with most growing companies venturing into a new venture and after an acquisition, work roles are not as clearly defined yet. Sometimes there seems to be "too many cooks in the kitchen"

    Advice to Management

    shake it up on people - productivity is low, accountability is non existent, business model is fast getting outpaced

    Pros

    Loved working for Sirius XM. I experienced a lot of creative freedom and support. No bosses breathing down my neck or analyzing every word I said.

    Cons

    While management was happy with my work, I have been unable to get another job within the company because I am not famous - the only type of on-air talent they are pursuing.

    Pros

    Cool service to be part of and on the average people are smarter than elsewhere

    Cons

    Being Liberty Media's cash cow means budgets are very tight and in most areas staff is thin. Also there are some old hands from the early days who are kept around out of loyalty who should not be in their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Weed out the dead wood - also realize that you have some talented people who weren't there when you were broke and struggling who deserve a shot too.

    Pros

    Overtime opportunities, great insurance, pay rate is decent. I liked this company when I started, it was a friendly, and easy going environment, and communication was great among superiors, and employees.

    Cons

    Schedules are not flexible, vacation time is not the easiest to get, and you are penalized for the smallest things. This company has gone downhill since I started, and I would not advise anyone to work here unless they made some major changes in morale.

    Advice to Management

    Think of your employees, their lives, just like you expect us to with our customers.
