    I have been working at SiriusXM full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay is decent. Benefits, paid vacation for full time employees, bonus potential, very good 401k plan, stock grants...

    Cons

    Senior Management is filled with angry chimpanzees. Stagnant upward mobility.

    Advice to Management

    Yelling at your employees like they are your cocker spaniel that just shat on your rug is probably not the best way to motivate people.

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

    Pros

    Might open you up to some new opportunities; can, in rare times, be exciting

    Cons

    Bad pay, bad hours. My management happened to be great, but several other managers are really not. HR does NOT have anything together whatsoever. I was a valued employee and I asked for a raise after a year and a half of working there and my manager tried very hard to secure one for me, but corporate does not want to give raises. In general, production staff is treated badly and corporate does not reward their talented employees. It's decently thankless work, too.

    Pros

    Fast-paced, high expectations, freedom to act, great rewards for accomplishments. Superb benefits and perks. Diverse and friendly work-force.

    Cons

    Lots of red-tape, lots of inconsistencies. Rules are made up on the fly. Manager skill levels vary greatly from division to division. No focus on a single company culture and standard set of expectations. Career advancement is each individual's responsibility; works well for some, others need more guidance.

    Advice to Management

    Provide opportunities for employees to share perspectives and work on improvement solutions. The people doing the work know how to make things better if they have a platform to share.

    Pros

    The company is really flexible with your needs, schedule and has many different channels you can work on. There is always someone who can teach you something to improve your career. Most of the people who work there are extremely friendly and have been in similar situations to whatever you find yourself in, so there is always a helpful hand there for you.

    Cons

    Its radio and it is cliche to say, but the pay isn't the best. However, while the base salary may not be the best, they offer amazing incentives if you are a competent worker.
