    J'ai travaillé chez Pandora Media, LLC à temps plein plus de 3 ans

    Avantages

    People passionate about the product. Friendly team. Good location near BART.

    Inconvénients

    Negative people destroying a once humble culture. Blind is full of toxic engineers complaining about everything. People still complain about strategic decisions made by CEOs from 4-5 years ago. More time is spent complaining than trying to improve things.

    Conseils à la direction

    Get rid of negative people.

    Lethargic ability to implement/replace old, old source base. Institutional instability owing to recently acquisition by SiriusXM. Huge loss of long term employees leading up or down to the latter. Old entrenched engineers resistant to change.

    Avantages

    Great people, lots of opportunities to connect with those around you in diverse ways

    Inconvénients

    Seems directionless at times, and there isn't a real drive to actually act on innovative ideas, better engineering culture (who/where is eng leadership??)

    Conseils à la direction

    Quarterly surveys are pretty useless for assessment especially when there could instead be team by team discourse about barriers to execution that management could address head-on

    J'ai travaillé chez Pandora Media, LLC à temps plein plus de 3 ans

    Avantages

    - Free snacks - More work than resources, so there are opportunities to own larger projects -"Work" from home Fridays (aka 3 day weekends every week) - Title inflation for engineering roles (Staff at Pandora < Senior anywhere else)

    Inconvénients

    - No clear direction or leadership or vision for the future. - No accountability. Decision making is so spread out that it takes forever to get anything done. As a side effect, low performers are never held accountable for their terrible decisions and poor work output. Product development management is more concerned with playing politics than actual results. - Lazy, inefficient employees - see the 3 day... weekend/ "work" from home Fridays. Difficult to get anything done due to people working 10-4 four days a week. - Useless product managers. No innovation to speak of with "me-too" feature ideas, always playing catch up to the competitors. They add to bureaucracy, try to drive every decision, and ignore engineering input. There are far too many product managers for the amount of engineers, resulting in a huge backlog of work and not enough people to do it. - No engineering culture. It's impossible to drive new product or process ideas from the engineering side. See above for how product controls everything. - Subpar pay and no 401k matching. - Terrible morale, most people are just running out the clock until the next opportunity pops up. - Bleak business outlook, most people believe the company will be bought soon. - Terrible place to be a woman, men are constantly manterrupting, leering, and creating uncomfortable situations such as asking coworkers on dates. Raising these issues to management resulted in victim blaming and no positive outcomes.

    Conseils à la direction

    - Hold people accountable for lack of positive results. - Zero tolerance policy for sexual harassment. Believe accusers when they come forward rather than implying "boys will be boys." - Inspire people about the future of the company. - Simplify the product road map, rather than doing too many things poorly, do a few things really well. - Next time someone offers $15/share to buy the company, TAKE THE... OFFER!!

    Avantages

    People genuinely care for each other. It's not just lip service. They really want to create a long-term vision at Pandora.

    Inconvénients

    Too much fear, fear of change leading to complacency, which in turn leads to a lack of growth. I left because there was not enough to do, too much work being bottlenecked one way or another. Music industry is just a difficult business to be in.

    Conseils à la direction

    Keep it real. Love your employees, but don't let them get complacent. There's still a lot of growth potential for Pandora, regardless of Apple Music and Spotify.
