    Pros

    Fairly New Technology, Smart Talent, Free food and iphones. This place will certainly wow you in technology and some of the best talent, Good compensation.

    Cons

    lousy vacation policy(get real, no vacation policy - no vacation), very stressful work environment, little to no career opportunities if you are hired as an engineer, Chaos everywhere - High Turnover always affects your work one way or the other.

    Advice to Management

    About time you should check your champion badge, it may have expired. Qwikster was a debacle. But the hiring cycle afterwards brought some worse incompetent middle management. Open door policy and summary dismissals might have worked for us in the past when we were a DVD business, but it definitely is hurting us - Bay is a very small place. Your talent is leaving(or about to leave), others are simply not interested in working with us. If you dont believe me, ask why recruiters always have to bring talent from outside silicon valley. Promote openness, talent and healthy work environment - not mediocre middle management's words. Please bring back the culture from 3 years ago.

    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 Management

    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.
