Growing Company
Anonymous (Current Employee) –  Newark, NJMarch 16, 2018
Audible is a subsidiary company of Amazon, and you will enjoy many benefits that Amazon employees receive.

While Audible follows Amazon's standard and guidance, you will find managements' trying to do Audible-only projects that often conflicts with "Amazon-way".
Pros
Free lunch

Audible has a good culture and a lot to offer. Fun environment, fast pace
Receptionist (Current Employee) –  Newark, NJFebruary 1, 2018
There are good things that I can say about Audible. Fun place to work. The company offered a lot of perks. Paid parking or public transportation; catered lunch and breakfast, tickets for events at major arena's in the Newark area just to name a few. Very fast pace environment, nice be people, very large staff. Unfortunately management in my team was not at their best to mentor and fully support you in growth and moving up within the department. Very isolating in their approach in things that mattered in fully being a team player. A person/teams actions will always speak louder than words and in appearance. Loyalty goes a long way, unfortunately they have work to do in this area
Pros
Upbeat environment/ good culture
Cons
lack of loyalty

Audible is great on paper but has a long way to go
Customer Care Agent (Current Employee) –  Newark, NJDecember 7, 2017
Audible definitely wants to make its employees feel taken care of and appreciated. The various perks such as their benefits package, free lunches, discounts, and various amenities (travel compensation, happy hours, etc) make it one of the most enticing places to work.

However, when it comes down to business management, training, and communication, Audible lacks a great deal. There is a consistent "hand-off" attitude when it comes to taking responsibility for the problems in their operational processes. Inconsistencies in leadership and information make for a very stressful work environment under the happy surface Audible tries to convey.

Comp Job
Editorial Content Coordinator, Project Management (Former Employee) –  Jersey City, NJDecember 2, 2017
My manager was absent for the majority of my contract & didn't give me enough work to do, but asked me to look busier. My contract was project-based, and when the project ended I left.
I got the feeling that full-time employees enjoyed their work life more.

Finance (Former Employee) –  Newark, NJJune 11, 2017
Good benefits, and extraordinary employees to network with. However, company does not foster growth in some departments. Turnover rate is high and morale is low.

Dysfunctional Management
Assistant (Former Employee) –  Jersey City, NJMarch 16, 2017
big disappointment. executive is passive/aggressive with little to no communication on roles and responsibilities. publicly humiliates you in front of your peers, and seems to have difficulty looking you in the eye.
Apparently, they think paying for your lunch is thanks enough for working your butt off.
Pros
free lunch
Cons
incommunicative; divisive

Content Curator (Current Employee) –  Newark, NJNovember 21, 2015
Love the people I work with. They teach me and challenge me to be better. I go to a lot of meetings to discuss how to market our product. Hardest part of my job is double checking my work and making sure I communicate effectively across teams. Best part of my job is the food, camaraderie, and happy hours.
Pros
Free lunches, free bagels on Monday, free happy hour
Cons
lots of contractors with little job security

Frustrating, it could be so much better
Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee) –  Cambridge, MASeptember 10, 2015
As a satellite office to the Audible Headquarters in New Jersey, which is itself an Amazon acquisition, the Cambridge office struggles to find its own identity. Projects come and go, and the head count after being stagnant is on the rise, but real growth and new projects are hard to find, and the path to advancement is unclear and elusive.
Pros
Working for company (Amazon) with excellent name recognition
Cons
Small company as part of a very large one, and a satellite office. Little substantial growth and lack of vision.
