A year at Netflix is equal to 2-3 years most other places -- talent density creates accomplishment density.

Pros

Fast-moving. Few bureaucratic distractions. Willing to make big, disruptive changes quickly. The move to original content was smart and will propel growth well into the future. If you function well in a meritocracy, then you will likely be successful at Netflix.

Cons

They're getting big, and that growth is adding pressure to sacrifice some elements of their culture that made them unique and a desirable place to work. The quality of talent getting hired or promoted now is much less impressive than in the earlier years. The environment is increasingly political, which may be related to the hiring/promotion of more average, less-impressive employees.
