Best Places to Work: 2009 (#3)
I have been working at Netflix full-time (Less than a year)
- Very autonomous work environment - I was given more responsibility and freedom to take risks than at any other company before.
- Culture of transparency and feedback, there is a common understanding that timely and relevant feedback is key to one's development and healthy culture. Even in my short time here I was able to see the benefits of it - you always know where you stand.
- Virtually no obstacles to getting top talent - lack of stringent process helps with being more strategic about our decisions
- No major cons come to mind
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Netflix (Los Angeles, CA) in August 2017.
Started with a phone screen with an HR member. It was a brief 30min conversation with standard questions about Netflix. 2nd round was a Skype meeting with the hiring manager; 30min call with case like questions. 3rd round I was invited on site for a couple of interviews with people based in the US office (I was applying for a position overseas). Same case like questions and each interview took 30min. For the 4th round I was invited to their LA office for a full day of interviews. I had five 30min conversations and if successful I would be invited to the 5th round with a couple of VPs. I did well and managed to go to the 5th round. Then I talked with with VP and this is it.
The next day I received a call during the morning from the HR saying that I wasn't a good fit for the position because I don't have some skills required for the position.
