    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.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
