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

    Pros

    * snacks * great wfh policy * if you are good with politics, nepotism, and throwing people under a bus, you've found your place

    Cons

    * the culture is really just toxic. i've heard and seen people cry there too often in staircases. * eng teams aren't motivated to develop and work on new products. they're not even motivated to fix tech debt. just change the name of the team/project and the tech debt goes away. magic. * a lot of finger pointing from team to team that instead of focusing on a product to build, people focus more on finger pointing and getting validating for themselves * people there are so negative having been in such a toxic culture for so long, that i'v seen team members gang up on new employees. the new employees are just waiting until the one year vest period, if they can wait that long. * product hasn't really improved or innovated in the last 5 years. it couldn't keep up with spotify before the siriusXM acquisition, now they don't even bother now. * there's more internal passive-aggressive argument between managers, directors, and leaders that there's no need to solve any company issues. duct tape and bubble gum.
