      Pros

      Fantastic culture - workers often bring their guitars and other instruments to work, have jamming sessions, concerts, etc. Good work-life balance. Might work the occasional weekend during major releases, but overall pretty relaxed.

      Cons

      Some people at the top are just jerks and it feels like it's being encouraged to some extent from the very top. After being acquired by SiriusXM there's a lack of vision specifically for Pandora. Just another music app to pick up users who churned away from the main SiriusXM cash cow.

      Pros

      Great people and better work life balance than other digital media companies. Lots and lots of resources at your fingertips!

      Cons

      Sales team can be lazy and too reliant on Account Management team to do everything for them. Not enough recognition and appreciation for those that are the backbone of revenue.
