Highly political culture, dysfunctional.

Senior Systems Administrator (Former Employee)
Los Gatos, CA

ProsPay and the Netflix name helps on your resume, since most people outside do not know how bad it is inside.

ConsMind numbing. Stress. Constantly watching your back. There are people who have very high title (Directors, Managers, even VPs) who got it because they've managed to stay there the longest. Not because they are qualified for the job. The long timer/oldtimers survived by CYA each others. Those who they think are dangerous to their job will get the knife in the back.

It's not how good you are. It's how well you "play the game" and "fit in with the political culture". They value "safe" decisions that do not rock the boat. At least in the IT Ops dept that I worked in.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet your head out of the cloud once in a while. There's real problem underneath. Engineering got tired of the dysfunctional IT Ops group, and built their own infrastructure so they don't have to deal with incompetent people.

Best thing to do is fire everyone in Ops, and start fresh.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Netflix is a high performance atmosphere that allows you the freedom to use your judgement on your calls verses scripts.
