Great compensation, decent hours, nice employees (below upper management).

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
