    Pros

    Flexible environment. Fast paced. Very easy to have a huge impact. Great culture. There's always some fun non-work related activity going on. Beer every Friday. Lunch every day. Ping Pong, Basketball, Softball, ultimate frisbee. Just a great place to work.

    Cons

    I don't think this is a con but you gotta be on your game. Definitely not for everyone but for the right person you will thrive.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    I have been working at Audible full-time

    Pros

    Audible is a large and well known tech company for audiobooks.
    - Most employees have their heart in the right place and will share their struggles with management, and culture, and offer support to each other.
    - Offices and facilities are good. They are catered lunches, snacks, and the office buildings are well maintained.

    Cons

    - Toxic culture: Managers frequently use derogatory terms to refer to other hard-working people in the company, sometimes even about people in their team.
    - Very mixed quality of employees, exacerbated by managers who choose to ignore the incompetence of the employees who agree with them.
    - There is little space or encouragement of innovation: great ideas and pitches are stifled due to turf wars.
    - Little opportunity for growth: employees are not challenged to be the best in their field or to continue learning
    - The company is said to be in growing pains, but this seems to be used as an excuse by middle managers, with promises it will get better in the future, rather than respecting and trying to fix the challenges at hand.
    - The CEO has no idea of the incompetence within the company, and there are no mechanisms for feedback that goes beyond talking to your manager.
    - Recruiting is weak and lacks the ability to respect, recognize, and reward talents.

    Advice to Management

    - Hire middle management that really cares about people and the company, instead of fighting for personal gains.
    - Focus on good work and really care about the people because good people is your ultimate capital.
