    Pros

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

    Cons

    There 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 Management

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

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

    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 Management

    -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)
