    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.

    Pros

    Completely on your own for running the business, making day to day decisions on employees (hiring and firing)

    Cons

    High pressure, high stress, little to no room for advancement. High turnover in the management ranks and the front line employees get almost no benefuts. You have unlimited vacation but never get a chance to use it. Micromanaged by every person above you unless things fgo wrong-then you are on your won.

    Advice to Management

    You have great managers int he feild. Let them do the job you hired them to, reward them for the 10-14 hour days, and set back and reap the harvest of their efforts in the feild. Also, as many hub managers as you have turnover, you might need to look at the operational set-up and ask yourself why the average lifesapn of a manager is 12-18 months!!
