    I have been working at Audible full-time

    Pros

    Good direct manager
    Felt empowered to make decisions
    Lively drinking culture
    Work on some of the best audio projects
    Work/Life Balance (because there is very little to do)
    CEO seems like a good person - sends strong all staff emails on issues that impact them, works hard to regenerate Newark.
    If you just want to go somewhere and coast and take the amazing shares then this is the place, but if you ever want to feel like you're having an impact or doing stuff then it's a no.

    Cons

    Projects drag on and on and on. Senior management are left to make the ultimate decision and wildly pivot about not making decisions.
    Very celebratory of average work.
    Disorganised compared to Amazon and weird culture where they press that even though they are part of Amazon they 'still have startup culture'. Sadly that just means nothing ever gets done.
    Extreme lack of diversity, everyone is the same. HR don't care.
    Tech and Non Tech barely interact so issues obviously arise.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Audible in November-2017.

    Interview

    I applied online. Then Audible sent me a Hackerank coding challenge to complete. After that I had two technical interviews. If you pass these two interviews you'll get to talk with the team members about the company & projects.
