    I have been working at Audible full-time (More than a year)


    - Great flexibility options - be it working from home or leaving early/starting later, most managers are very understanding and flexible. Options exist around more formal flexible working patterns for both parents and non parents which is great to see.
    - Good perks as an employee - Amazon Stock, discounts, free food
    - Widely comfortable and friendly office environment - I've made some really valuable friendships here with the people I work with
    - People you work with really care about the product and want to bring out the best for the business and it's customers


    - Bureaucratic mechanisms make progress and/or change very slow and tedious
    - US focus means that we sometimes miss the mark in the international market place
    - Inconsistency around work space and benefit offerings when comparing to the US and other offices - needs a revamp across the board to be in line with the 21st century
    - Culture can seem quiet and detached which has it's purpose, but does not feel particularly inclusive

    Advice to Management

    In the relatively short period I've been here I've seen a fair amount of change - some for the best, some that seems nonsensical. Think outside the box, develop a healthier appetite to risk and make this place the cool, quirky, smart and fun workplace it can be. There is so much untapped potential here and management have been too comfortable for far too long.

    Marketing Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Audible (London, England) in January 2017.


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Audible (London, England) in January 2017.

    It first started with a 30 minutes telephone interview which was competency and background based. Because I didn't have enough experience in merchandising, the recruiter, very professional and pro-active, came up with another available position. After that, I had another telephone interview with the Hiring Manager.

    A very positive experience.
