    Pros

    The QA department when I was there was small and friendly. They give you plenty of flexibility to do the job the way it needs to be done without lots of micromanagement.

    Cons

    Not a lot of job security or advancement potential. If you can't produce the kind of results they're looking for you won't last long, and even if you do you probably won't move up much unless you really really want to.

    Pros

    Netflix was very kind to me. The environment was very friendly and relaxed. They cared about my health by providing a healthy salad lunch on a daily basis and a well stocked snack room.

    Cons

    My biggest complaint was that I could not work there for a lengthier time. They were flexible with my real life emergencies and situation. The leadership listened and understood any concerns I may have had.

    Advice to Management

    I hope you guys kept doing what you were doing.

    Pros

    Very collaborative environment, great colleagues, great pay, people are adults.

    Cons

    You have to be self-driven and proactive to get trained, and a lot of training is on the job, but this is by design.

    Pros

    * Freedom & Responsibility culture. Everyone in the company knows the company's direction well. We are responsible for helping the company move to the right direction and we are free to choose how to help the company.
    * Transparency. The management team spends time with everyone in the company explaining how the company operates.

    Cons

    * No training program. You are on your own to improve your technique skills.

    Advice to Management

    I hope that the top management get more feedbacks from everyone in the company. We are a very focused company. However we may find another big thing if we spend some resources on innovative ideas, which do not match the company's focus.

    Pros

    As much as the customers could be awful sometimes, Netflix really tried to make us happy. The supervisors were very hands on, and always there to help. My team of co-workers were very helpful too. We were always in group chats discussing issues. There were always contests going around, and fresh fruits in the break rooms.

    Cons

    The only con really is that you don't get to choose your hours. You may get stuck with the overnight shift, or working all weekend days. They do pay you more for those hours though.

    Pros

    They treat you like adults.
    There is very less politics.
    If you have the stuff, you will really excel.
    They pay you well.
    They have a Steve Jobs-class CEO.
    They have a fantastic vision- thanks to Reed Hastings.
    You are bound to have world class colleagues.

    Cons

    The most touted culture is changing as the company grows.

    Advice to Management

    Looks like the company is being YAHOO-fied. There is a lot of influx of Yahoo management which is changing the culture quite a bit.

    There is quite a bit of self-aggrandizement in recent times, where there is an army of people hired just for the management to move up the ladder.

    Mr.Reed- it is not only important to be a visionary CEO, but it is important to know what is going on with the management as well. After all, if the culture changes under your carpet, your culture deck will not be admired by people anymore.

    Netflix has created a very competitive culture that promotes and drives innovation.

    Cons

    Having a very competitive work environment can get into the way of a healthy work/life balance.

    The Netflix values encompass traits you would find beneficial with any employee.
