    Pros

    - top of market base salary
    - 4 DVD out plan is free
    - do not penny pinch on equipment, get whatever you want.

    Cons

    - freedom and responsbility is their mantra when you're hired, but it is not practiced by new managers.
    - people get fired all the time for disagreeing or questioning management on anything.
    - On some teams(mine, not all) there was no collaboration in design between managers and programmers. The managers designed it and the only freedom the programmers had was to develop it exactly in that manner. If you disagreed with the design, you guessed it: your fired.
    - even star performers routinely get the axe. Others remaining are understandably nervous about their jobs.
    - so called stock plan makes no sense at all. Only plan I've ever heard of where an employee has to risk his own money to participate.
    - benefits are awful if you have a family. It cost me $800/month to have medical and dental for the family of 4. If your single, your completely covered.
    - no vacation paid when you leave. This is also a plus in a way though. Netflix does not track vacation time at all. If you take too much though, you will get fired without warning.

    Advice to Management

    - take off that powerpoint presentation from jobs.netflix.com about the Netflix culture. It no longer applies. Netflix has turned into the mature company that is envisioned in the slide deck. Star performers no longer want to work there.
