    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Audible full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I joined the company because I am a firm believer in their People Principles! It's evident that leadership, including managers and supervisors, are committed to ensuring that Audible is a company where all feel welcomed, included and appreciated. I've only been here a short while, but I'm already thrilled to be part of the Audible Family!

    Cons

    Due to Covid-19 networking is a bit challenging, but the company offers a lot of employee engagement tools via online meetings (Chime) and opportunities to volunteer. I'm looking forward to things getting back to normal so that I can hopefully meet in person all these colleagues I've grown to respect and admire.
