I worked at Netflix full-time

Pros

Awesome industry; memorable teammates; great opportunity to stand on the edge of the precipice of unquantified technologies...

Cons

Never sure which way the wind blows; work hard to develop a team -- and then it's blown away in an instant; turnover is so quick that it's almost unnecessary to unpack your bag.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give teams more time to blossom; expectation of termination on the whim of management leads to loss of faith in the overall mission of the company.

    I worked at Netflix part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The pay was competitive for what the job was, and the benefits were excellent even for a temporary employee. The staff, including management, was generally relaxed and friendly. The culture is seemingly relaxed and there is no formal dress code or vacation policy.

    Cons

    The environment was very stressful and it felt like anyone could lose their job at any moment. There is a huge emphasis on stats and if an employee does not measure up, they are terminated. The opportunity to move up isn't nearly as within reach as they make it seem.
