    I have been working at Netflix full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Company moves fast and you can be very productive. Minimal bureaucracy. Generally good at attempting to disseminate vision from top-down. Strong technical contributors and great peers. Most policies and practices are employee-friendly (in that there's little impediments to getting stuff done). Company does get rid of low-performers regularly.

    Cons

    As with many rapidly growing organizations, there's some chaos and politically-biased positioning during the changes. Some managers are focused too tactically on product today, not strengthening the team and products for future. If you need to work at a place where things don't change much or where you can know you'll be employed for years--this is not the place for you. Work load can be heavy at times (but the work itself is interesting and fun).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As the company continues to move from a maverick streaming technology startup to a operations-focused content provider, there should be more discussion about how the culture and product is changing and how it needs to shift more. In the past 5 years, engineer headcount has more than doubled -- how can we continue to adapt our management and development at the same rate of success (or better) with this much larger org?

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Netflix.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted about the job opening and after several calls with the hiring manager and recruiter, they brought me in for an in-person interview. The interview was a panel portfolio session followed by a product brainstorm session. Brainstorm went well, but got grilled during the presentation portion. Good luck, it was brutal.
