Pros

Innovation is not hampered by unnecessary process. Designs are not approved by executives or committee they are approved by the users. This is an environment that promotes creativity.

Cons

You must be able to let your work go. For every test that wins 4 other designs fail. Being able to learn from designs that fail is difficult to do when you are emotionally invested in them.

Advice to Management

Give highly talented, less experienced, candidates an opportunity to interview. Raw talent, in a fully formed adult, at a great company yields great results.

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

    Pros

    Good pay for the work Laid back environment with lax dress code great employee benefits free/cheap food in the breakroom

    Cons

    When something changes, employees find out when the customers do. Mass layoffs when call volume decreases. I've heard they don't do re-hires.

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees heads up on major company changes so they can be properly prepared/trained to deal with those calls. Also, don't lay off good employees the week they are supposed to be converted. It gets their hopes up and I felt kinda blindsided because I was continually getting positive feedback and was told my conversion was pretty much locked in.

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

    Pros

    Leading edge technology, not afraid to do things differently if it makes sense, agile and low process overhead for getting things done. Clear focus on a simple business model, with clear responsibilities and freedom on how to deliver.

    Cons

    You have to be comfortable with rapid change, ambiguity and have enough self confidence to cope with the culture. It's not a place for people who like to know what the rules are and follow them.
