I have been working at Netflix

Pros

The starting pay is competitive for what you do.
Fast growing company, opportunity to be in the cutting edge
some of the employee perks are great
Empowered to do your job
movies

Cons

Poor training environment - felt like I was in grade school
Management was "high & mighty" - unapproachable
Over qualified and no oppurtunity for advancement
High employee turn over 13 a week. with about 320 employees at the center

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you want to stay at the top of VOD and mail-order movies, get your head out of the clouds and your ass. It cost more to train and hire someone than to keep them for 6 months

    I have been working at Netflix

    Pros

    Great compensation for those of us that started before Netflix became a household name. Some of the best benefits available; especially vacation time alloted after 90 days.
    Stock options that really turned into something.
    Begin able to say you work for Netflix. Everyone knows what it is now!

    Cons

    LONG hours and hours that never stabilized. Became a machine repair person at the hub; spending most of my time fixing equipment problems at the end.
    Had all the vacation in the world but almost impossible to get time off approved especially if you wanted to take multiple days in a row off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I appreciate the fact that in the early years you needed people that could handle the growth and expansion and you compensated them well but it is a shame you didn't see these people as an asset later on and let a lot of them go.

    Pros

    Industry Leader
    Knowledge of company initiatives and goals are well spread knowledge amongst everyone there.
    Excellent Salary

    Cons

    Work-life balance poor
    Turnover of employees extremely high, most stay for fewer than 6 months.
    Management unable to work together to form any cohesive goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to grow up from it's casual start up type environment, and realize at the size and rate of growth it is at, it needs to begin implementing a more traditional working environment.
