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

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

    Pros

    Free movies, before the last set of layoffs there was genuine regard for employee satisfaction and feedback was often solicited not only to improve business processes but also to gauge morale. After a while, not so much...

    Cons

    Frequent layoffs. Whole departments got laid off at a time. I guess I should have figured how it was going to be when the entire management team save one manager was suddenly gone a few months after I had completed training, which btw was before the 2008 meltdown. The entire QA team was let go a few months later and the entire Tech support team shortly thereafter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seems as though it would be difficult to keep quality people if the company lays off entire departments.
