Haste makes waste, and don't let the door hit you on the ass on your way out.

    Great pay, time off, benefits compensation. Awesome hours. They promote teamwork among their employees. Upper Management has open door policy and they are extremly approachable.

    DVD side of the company is getting smaller due to more new customers utilizing the streaming service.

    Keep up the level of interactivity with the employees. Shows everyone that they are valuable to the company and they are recognized

    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.
