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 Management

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 have been working at Netflix full-time (More than a 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.
