    I worked at Pandora Media, LLC full-time

    Pros

    The culture and opportunities are excellent and there are lots of fun aspects of working for a music streaming company. They are cutting edge in many areas of technology. Learning mindset is key, and mistakes aren't held against you as long as you're transparent and learn from them. Diversity and inclusion are valued highly.

    Cons

    The company is undergoing a transition in culture as it integrates with SiriusXM. But overall the acquisition less bumpy than most I've been through. Some of the IT integration is still a work in progress.
