I have been working at Netflix full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Management is not afraid to experiment and try new things. Rapid development. High trust culture. Inventing the future.

Cons

If you don't like change, ambiguity or are uncomfortable in a place where you get to use your own judgement a lot, it wouldn't be a good fit.

    I worked at Netflix full-time

    Pros

    Used to be top of market pay. No longer is, but still higher than average.

    Free Netflix account.

    Cons

    The Hillsboro call center is shrinking dramatically. Management puts as much spin on this as possible but the reality is, opportunities to advance do not exist.

    The "Netflix culture" is hyped constantly but is not actually practiced. You will survive if you can speak the buzz words fluently while shamelessly self-promoting yourself at all times and never questioning management.

    Everyone is under tremendous stress to protect their position for as long as possible. Success in Hillsboro depends not on the quality of your work but upon your ability to spin the truth and play politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is not looking for advice.

    I worked at Netflix full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Easy interview. Lots of quiet time. Ripping envelopes can be kind of a zen experience if you look at it that way

    Cons

    early, short hours. facilities are often far enough away from residential areas that the gas cost basically negates 1/4 of your work day's wages. No social interaction. VERY Repetitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find some way to give people full time hours so that that you don't have a constant revolving door with employees.
