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

    Pros

    Amazing culture and the people they hire really make the company.

    Cons

    They start you off really low in comparison to other companies and you make no commission. You oversee millions of ad revenue and are responsible for its delivery, you should be compensated for that responsibility. It’s very hard to move to different departments if you have interest in growing within the company. Even despite the years you work there.
