I worked at Netflix full-time for more than 3 years

ProsNetflix's commitment to attracting highly-motivated, creative thinkers throughout the organization means clever solutions and great ideas can come from anywhere at anytime.

ConsThere is a certain pressure to perform that comes from the level of freedom granted that results in a percieved sink or swim mentality.

Advice to Senior ManagementWhen I left, there was very little reward or recognition given to managers who mentored or successfully developed staff.
