    Pros

    The culture of Freedom and Responsibily really does exits at Netflix. If you are a passionate engineer who likes to solve hard problems, you will love Netflix.

    Cons

    The main location is in Los Gatos, and working remotely full-time is currently not allowed.

    Advice to Management

    Consider piloting a full-time remote engineering hire to gauge the success. Allowing remote employment as an option could remove a barrier that prevents some very talented folks from applying.

    Pros

    A company that practices what it preaches. If you have ever interviewed with Netflix or know someone who may have heard of the Netflix Culture deck. It preaches the values and focus of the company. If you search Netflix Culture deck you can find it online.

    Cons

    Freedom and Responsibility is not meant for everyone. Meaning some people need more guidance and strive when given very specific objectives.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work
