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

    Pros

    - 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

    Cons

    - 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.

    Brand Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Audible (London, England).

    Interview

    Sent in my resume and were contacted to book a first phone interview with the recruiter. The interview took about 20 minutes were we discussed my background and the role, it was a standard first phone interview. At the end of the interview the in-house recruiter told me he would like to book me in for a face to face interview with the person that would be my line manager and asked me for my availability this and next week. After our phone call I followed up with an email, thanking the recruiter for his time and reiterated my availability. He then told me he would get back to me with a time suitable for all of us. After that I heard nothing. I sent three follow up emails spread out over the next month. It is okay if I would not have proceeded, but would have appreciated a response, especially since they said they would like a second interview with me.
