Best Places to Work: 2009 (#3)
I have been working at Netflix full-time (More than a year)
The culture at Netflix is truly real and I mean that in the most positive way. Every person is willing to put down what they are doing and help and no one has an ego or any type of political agenda. It is an incredible collaborative work environment. I think a lot of the misconceptions about Netflix (cut throat, you get fired easily) are exactly that - misconceptions. The level of empathy and support is amazing and I never got that anywhere else I worked.
I wish there was more time in the day to learn and do incredible things. We move fast, but I like it.
I applied online. I interviewed at Netflix.
Did some digging on the team prior to the scheduled phone call with the hiring manager and realized that I had zero chance of moving past that initial screening as the entire team was made up of white sorority girls and I did not fit that image at all.
A month later I've learned that they hired some white kid. So basically if you aren't white you don't stand a chance. Their idea of making things "diverse" is throwing in a dude into the mix.
