    Negative Prognose
    Stimmt gegen Geschäftsführer

    Ich habe für mehr als 3 Jahre bei Pandora Media, LLC gearbeitet (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    - 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)

    Kontras

    - 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.

    Rat an das Management

    - 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!!

    Neutrale Prognose
    Befürwortet Geschäftsführer

    Ich arbeite seit mehr als einem Jahr bei Pandora Media, LLC (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    Good opportunity for flexible hours and work life balance. Most mid-level managers are pleasant and not overbearing. Interesting people and open, welcoming culture. Definitely a place that lets you be you.

    Kontras

    Can be disorganized: Projects can break into silos, no one talks, and it leads to chaos. Product-feature-driven to the extreme, no emphasis on addressing tech-debt, documenting how things work, etc, so most people get lazy and don't do it. Stock is very volatile, and comprises a sizable percentage of comp packages.

    Rat an das Management

    Pick a direction and stick with it for more than a year. You've got some employees who you should work harder to keep and some that you need to let go.

    Ich arbeite seit weniger als einem Jahr bei Pandora Media, LLC als Vollzeit

    Pros

    A wide variety of technologies, good work is valued, no drama or negativity, lots of exposure to new music and fun stuff going on in Oakland

    Kontras

    You have to be kind of a self-starter and figure out what needs to get done by yourself. The management structure is pretty flat and informal and if you need to be spoon-fed your tasks you will not enjoy it

    Rat an das Management

    Consider instituting a program like Google's 20% where people can work on projects that interest them, independent of corporate priorities. The hackathons are nice but something on-going would be better
