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 Beige cubes, plastic bottles and lunches paint a rather out-of-date office space approach.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 for 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.
