Worrisome. Always feeling that I was going to be next.

Former Employee - Manager in Los Gatos, CA
Former Employee - Manager in Los Gatos, CA

I worked at Netflix full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

-Freedom and Responsibility
-Able to telecommute

Cons

-Very (VERY) cut throat
-Upper management doesn't support staff
-HR allows upper management to oust existing employees when a new director is hired and wants to bring his former staff over

Advice to ManagementAdvice

-Show a little more respect towards employees that actually follow the company values and culture
-Management does not practice what they preach (my 360 review from my manager was awesome, however, I managed to hear through the grapevine that he was unhappy with my performance)

Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Netflix full-time

    Pros

    •  Great compensation package
    •  Free lunch
    •  Free cell phone

    Cons

    •  The company culture is very cold hearted, they let people go ALL THE TIME, sometimes for good
       reasons, most of the time not.
    •  The environment is extremely political that makes it hard to focus on doing a good job.
    •  A lot of employees are rather negative about the workplace and very open about looking for a job.

    Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Los Gatos, CA

    I have been working at Netflix full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The best part about working at Netflix is the people. I've worked at both Microsoft and Amazon before coming to Netflix, and the people at Netflix are of a higher quality. Each person seems to be very good at what they do, and I feel like I can learn from them. I never realized before what a joy it is to work with great people. Other great things about Netflix are high salary and free meals.

    Cons

    There isn't much of a career path. If you want to be a manager or director, you might not have much success at Netflix. I view Netflix as a place where people come to work during the day and then go home to their families at night.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the stock price go back up!
