    Pros

    Benefits are great, stock options, 401k, and they pay a decent wage for a call center.

    Cons

    The call volume can be very high at times and not allow much time for breathing between calls.

    Not political - the best idea wins
    If you aren't a great performer or don't have the constitution for honest feedback (people calling you out, not just on your technical skills but also on your emotional immaturity) you'll get fired.

    Cons

    Pros

    A company that really cares about their employees, has competitive salaries and excellent benefits. If offered a position I highly suggest you take it.

    Cons

    There really isn't too much to say on the negative side of things about Netflix. There hasn't been on incidence I can think of that has turned me off about the company

    I worked at Netflix full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Fast paced environment. The company seemed to really appreciate all employees no matter what level they were. Benefits package was set up so that you pocketed some or all of the allotted money set aside for medical, etc. if you did not use it. Too bad all medical insurance is not set up this way...

    Cons

    Very early mornings on certain days, but, that was needed to make shipments arrive to customers quickly. Having to leave early to make labor costs. As a result, a lot of work ended up being left for the salaried manager. DVD rental side shrinking due to streaming.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Eliminate excess supplies and use that extra money for labor.

    Pros

    Great co workers, benefits, and awesome atmosphere. Management is awesome and the job is easy to get the hang of.

    Cons

    Can deal with some angry customers and the job can get kind of repetitive. But overall best place I've worked for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be good at your job and follow the rules

    Pros

    It's like working for a very well funded startup.
    If you're good, this company will boost your career lightyears ahead.
    Compensation and perks are just right. No lavish lunches, just good organic food to keep you focused on business. No laundry service. It's not taking over your life.
    Very fast growing company. Lots of room to grow and lots of opportunity (if you look).
    Visibility - top down, you see everything. There are no secrets in this company. Very helpful if you know how to use this to your advantage.

    Cons

    If you're not good, you won't survive here.
    If you have issues with your people skills, you won't survive here.
    If you need hand-holding, someone to constantly point you in the right direction, you'll be directed to the door (while holding your hand).
    You'll have to manage your work/life balance. Some people just don't know what 'unlimited vacation' means.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work.

    Pros

    Management is not afraid to experiment and try new things. Rapid development. High trust culture. Inventing the future.

    Cons

    If you don't like change, ambiguity or are uncomfortable in a place where you get to use your own judgement a lot, it wouldn't be a good fit.
