Pros

If you’re a high performance person and a good culture fit, Netflix is a great place to work. There’s no micro managing here and everyone is allowed to take responsibility for their own projects. There’s an amazing lack of arrogance and people collaborate cross functionally on a regular basis. The people you work with every day will be smart, focused and enthusiastic. The company leadership is not afraid to make bold decisions and take risks which keeps the company exciting and innovative.

Cons

If you’re not a high performance person or you don’t fit the culture you won’t last long. The bold decisions made by management can translate to frequent changes in direction. If you’re not comfortable with changing priorities Netflix won’t be a good place for you.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to take risks and make bold decisions.

    Pros

    Freedom and responsibility! The 7 Great Reasons to work at Netflix are actually true!

    Cons

    If you can’t self manage you will not succeed...you need to be able to own and drive the business...no one will hold your hand! Not a downside for me, but could be for others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep innovating and changing the game!

    I have been working at Netflix

    Pros

    Fast paced, dynamic industry, good compensation, interesting work. Netflix hires talented people and gives them real responsibility. This leads to high performers and the company philosophy is to let under performers go and to replace them with top talent. I have found the work challenging and in a short period of time have been given more responsibility. Netflix is a leader in innovation and willing to take risks

    Cons

    Promotions difficult to come by. At times the high performance culture can make the company seem like a revolving door and there are some job security questions but in general this leads to higher overall performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to be flexible and quick - it is our competitive advantage.
