      Pros

      It's a tech job that has all the usual tech job benefits.

      Cons

      Ask yourself, when is the last time you saw Pandora have any new features or do anything different in the last few years? Imagine what it's like to work there and never feel like you've made an impact... - The company has been around for nearly 2 decades and feels like a startup with the lack of tools, resources, and process and no structure for roadmaps and project planning -You're expected to work around the clock on new things that never launch and also go back and fix the old/broken areas that no one has any idea why they were build that way to begin with. - The head of product and design has no clue what she's doing nor is there much concern for the team's overall well-being - but is great about finding time to speak about herself at conferences. -There is also no culture and nothing really "fun" about working at a place that is supposed to be part of the music/entertainment industry. Most people are too burnt out to want to learn anything about their peers, much less do a team building or anything that involves a conversation outside of work.

      Pros

      Nice people, decent work/life balance.

      Cons

      You will lose your mind dealing with over a decade of tech debt driven by leadership that's stuck in the early 2000s.
