I loved working at Pandora.....I love the culture, the people, and what is available as benefits!!

Work hard because the job came with little knowledge of what was done before I came. So, coming in was hard and liittle room for errors!!

Executive Assistant to VP of Sales Operations (Former Employee) –  Oakland, CAJanuary 26, 2015
Pandora has it all for their employees. You can work, listen to music and have great relationships with your co-workers.....Who wouldn't want to work there!

I worked a 4 month maternity leave assignment. Pandora has a great work/life balance culture. Options to work from home and a fun environment.

Renegade sheriffs in management positions
Fry Cook (Former Employee) –  Oakland, CAApril 13, 2013
There are great people at Pandora, but the overall business lacks the necessary members and managers lack management training and/or skills. Most people I know/knew were not satisfied, but stayed on with the start-up loyalty the company has survived on.

The overall experience was not great. Benefits were not great. The name looks good on a Resume in Nor Cal/Bay Area.

(This is for Pandora Internet Radio)
Pros
you like music?
Cons
very little actual music perks. unorganized.

Great people and free food
Billing Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Oakland, CAApril 9, 2012
It's a young environment and like I mentioned in the headline Free Food, which is always cool with me. I found that most people were unhappy with thier jobs but put up with it cause it's Pandora. In my opinion, from what I heard, the employees were upset with all the tiers of management, low salaries, and over complicated account processes. It could have been related to the fact that Pandora just went public recently and had to triple the staff to stay accountable to the share holders. In any case, it's a good place to make friends.
Pros
free food
Cons
very ridged management team, sketchy location in oakland
