Featured Review

Former Employee - Senior Sales Executive

I worked at Pandora Media, LLC full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Flexible working hours, great benefits such as paid charity time, financial incentives to partake in extracurricular activities with colleagues etc. Pay was very competitive for the music industry... also.

Cons

No clear direction from the head offices in the USA and therefore didn't have a clear indication of KPIs

Advice to Management

Need a clear message to staff what the goals of the company are

"Office Manager"27 Oct 2019

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at Spotify full-time for more than a year

Pros

Amazing benefits and fantastic culture in Sydney office

Cons

Small teams, everyone works very, very hard. Not a bad thing if you have the right people in your team, but can be seen as very intense workload for people who aren't used to putting their head... down/have adequate time management skills.
