Nice while it lasted, not everything it is cut out to be.

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

Pros

Lunch, brand that people are aware of.

Cons

Management overall is quite bad. Most people get promoted to the role based on seniority, not on actual ability to lead and mentor others.

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

    Pros

    Fast paced, energetic place to work. The compensation was great, and the tools at our disposal were more than adequate to build and retain strong teams.

    Cons

    To much reliance on matrix and not enough on individuality that empowers employees to do great things. While we had great tools, were were not given the autonomy to use them effectively. Good people had to be let go for arbitrary reasons, and other that should move on are kept.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward creativity, relax a wee bit, and never ever hire more people than you really need. Doing so creates problems down the road that are not good for anyone.

    I worked at Netflix as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Worked with a great team; scrupulous attention to quality; great opportunities to stretch one's wings and pursue new skills; great food.

    Cons

    Inconsistencies within the workplace and the "culture deck." Loss of excellent team members when projects ended or were terminated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rethink the "Expect to be laid off" mentality; Retraining team members who could have been co-opted into new projects could give Netflix new vitality
