Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer  in  Los Gatos, CA
Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Los Gatos, CA

I have been working at Netflix full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

It's like working for a very well funded startup.
If you're good, this company will boost your career lightyears ahead.
Compensation and perks are just right. No lavish lunches, just good organic food to keep you focused on business. No laundry service. It's not taking over your life.
Very fast growing company. Lots of room to grow and lots of opportunity (if you look).
Visibility - top down, you see everything. There are no secrets in this company. Very helpful if you know how to use this to your advantage.

Cons

If you're not good, you won't survive here.
If you have issues with your people skills, you won't survive here.
If you need hand-holding, someone to constantly point you in the right direction, you'll be directed to the door (while holding your hand).
You'll have to manage your work/life balance. Some people just don't know what 'unlimited vacation' means.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the great work.

    Former Employee - Hub Manager  in  Worcester, MA
    Former Employee - Hub Manager in Worcester, MA

    I worked at Netflix full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Stock option plan was very good. IT department worked well with hubs. Some hub managers were willing to work as team.

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations, super long hours, poor upper management skills, cold mechanical type company, not very team oriented, uncomfortable company to work for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stand behind what your HR team describes during interviews. Listen to all employees.

    I have been working at Netflix full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    competitive pay, relaxed environment, various workplace amenities

    Cons

    Large call volume, huge customer base means needing to be insanely adaptive, 'sink or swim' mentality; if you don't continually preform you will be replaced regardless of past performance
