      Pros

      Overall a nice environment but nothing special. Free meals on Fridays was good, along with the free beverages and coffes in the office.

      Cons

      There are no oppurtunities, salaries are low and working students, although they do a lot of work within their working hours, they actually treated as second-class employees.

      SO and I moved into a loft style apartment where the walls only go up about 80% of the way (there’s 2 ft gap between the wall and ceiling) this has made co working from home a nightmare, even getting a plate from the kitchen is perfectly audible from the bedroom. The place is awesome otherwise - any creative solutions from other fish in similar situations? Considering this a life lesson…

      Exciting and Great Place to Work

      Pros

      It's a workplace where you have the opportunity to learn every single day. Audible is not scared to take chances to improve the overall customer experience. Love the test and trial environment because with these experiences we continue to discover and grow. Not to mention working along with some of the brightest is a great opportunity to challenge oneself.

      Cons

      Although the days are long and there is plenty of work to go around the company acknowledges this and tries hard to balance things out with the introduction of Wellness Days and Flexible Work Schedules.

      Pros

      • Leadership makes an effort to hear from and care for their employees • Great benefits • Great culture • Inspiring work and mission • Many opportunities to learn and grow in your role (awesome tuition reimbursement program)

      Cons

      • There have been changes/shifts in leadership and top priorities every year that I have been there. • Lot of training and learning opportunities, but promotions and expanding beyond your role often takes longer than it should and can be political.

      Pros

      A foot in the door at Amazon Good Benefits Good ideals Aspirational cultural values

      Cons

      Stack ranking creates horrible culture Highly political Compensation no longer as competitive as it used to be HR has no real policies or controls, especially in regards to COVID tracing and reporting Slowly being absorbed by Amazon Middle management too busy patting each other on the back, stabbing each other in the back, or trying to get Bob's attention Career growth isn't a thing, but the bar is low enough that it's a place to park for a while for many Management still committed to getting everyone back in the office

      good place for motivated and willing to sacrifice

      Pros

      Amazing pay and benefits. They want you to succeed and reach the high standards of Audible/Amazon. Much more understanding of personal issues than the parent company.

      Cons

      Even though Audible is technically its own company, it is still very much run like Amazon. You will sacrifice a lot of free time in order to constantly meet the requirements of your role. High stress and constant pressure to go above and beyond with no breaks are par for the course. At the end of the day, they are going to put 10% of the workforce on the improvement plan path, and its a fight to stay above that.
