    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

    Pros

    The company is extremely transparent; you can work from home when you want

    Cons

    Upward mobility is really difficult because the company too often hires sales managers from the outside; culture is suffering and a lot of unknowns ahead regarding the company's future; there's no diversity on the executive leadership team; no 401K match

    I have been working at Pandora Media, LLC full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Feels like family. Very supportive colleagues and managers. I work for some of the best managers I've ever had and they treat me like a partner not a subordinate. Freedom to work remotely as long as you are successful. They focus on the health and emotional well-being of their employees, creating a creative and supportive culture and being fully transparent with the company's goals and challenges. They encourage professional and personal growth and give sellers the opportunity to exceed revenue goals and make money, The company has heart and soul.

    Cons

    There are no cons to working at Pandora

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Pandora Media, LLC full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Consumers love the product, which makes it easy to get in the door as a salesperson, and inherently fun to tell your friends/family about. Some individual contributors are world-class. Lots of internal resources. Some great managers with great communication skills and transparency. Sales compensation, while reigned in a bit in recent years, is still high. Executive Leadership is strong (even if the layer immediately below can flounder at times).

    Cons

    Product/engineering resources are reserved for pushing the client-facing product and brand advertiser products. As stock dips, purses are tightening, hiring freezing, and morale dropping. Some VPs are coasting and/or completely checked out, seemingly working 25-hour weeks. Communication above your manager's level is poor. While Pandora promotes interdepartmental movement, and it does happen, there are "off limits" departments that will rarely hire internally.

    Pros

    Well known brand, great work perks, set up for success from day one, collaborative environment.

    Cons

    The sales team I was on was pivoting constantly, there was not a clear path for growth on the team and great talent was overlooked. Sales continued to expand, but there was little promotion from within.
