I have been working at Netflix full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Incredibly talented, smart, driven coworkers across every function of the organization. Unusually organized and efficiently run. Feel lucky if you get the opportunity to be part of such an amazing place and such an incredible time. It is rare.

Cons

New head of Talent is not the right person to be leading and shaping the culture of Netflix. There are many concerns echoed about her throughout the company and worries that with her at the helm, the sacred secret sauce will start to spoil.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be critical throughout the leadership team in addition to the rest of the organization when it comes to A players. Also, it might be time to step back and reevaluate the way compensation is structured. Many folks have voiced being frustrated and dissatisfied in their roles but acknowledge they are paid higher than anywhere else so chose to stay.

    I have been working at Netflix full-time

    Pros

    Friendly environment with many seasoned pros in the ranks. Engineers and their designs are not subject to micro-management. Very little policy or overhead. Great compensation from a cash perspective. Team orientation.

    Cons

    While much of netflix is progressive, there's a lot of legacy software and practice you will have to deal with. Beige cubes, plastic bottles and lunches paint a rather out-of-date office space approach.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more green: allow remote employees, open offices closer to population centers, stop all the plastic waste. Force staff rotation particularly around troublesome technology.

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

    Pros

    Best company culture I have ever seen. "Freedom and Responsibility" is their guiding phrase here and it is true. They expect you to do you job and give you the freedom to do it as you see fit. Have never felt more empowered as a designer.

    Cons

    Can get political in certain situations, but it is a large organization. Makes you grow to understand the business side of things.
