Pros

If you’re a high performance person and a good culture fit, Netflix is a great place to work. There’s no micro managing here and everyone is allowed to take responsibility for their own projects. There’s an amazing lack of arrogance and people collaborate cross functionally on a regular basis. The people you work with every day will be smart, focused and enthusiastic. The company leadership is not afraid to make bold decisions and take risks which keeps the company exciting and innovative.

Cons

If you’re not a high performance person or you don’t fit the culture you won’t last long. The bold decisions made by management can translate to frequent changes in direction. If you’re not comfortable with changing priorities Netflix won’t be a good place for you.

Advice to Management

Continue to take risks and make bold decisions.

    Pros

    This is a culture that promotes freedom and responsibility coupled with extremely talented people resulting in an environment in which I am proud to work. We celebrate success and don't dwell on failures, but rather act on them and overcome. We continue to find new and innovative solutions to provide our customers with the best viewing experience possible.

    Cons

    If you're not able to adapt to change quickly, this is not the place for you. Being fluid, flexible and dynamic is a must. If you seek rigor, structure and formality, you won't find that here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the top-down communication flowing. It's great to work in an environment where communication is so open, honest and constructive. Continue to push the envelope so our creative minds can continue to grow and flourish.

    Pros

    Smart, passionate, fun loving colleagues that keep the mood light and and the pace fast. Flat organizations rule. Great facilities - clean, professional, uncluttered, with plenty of space and sunshine. A place where 'forgiveness' is valued over 'permission'. A place where 'take risks and recover quickly' is lived every day. Customers are raving fans of our product.

    Cons

    If you have an ego, or want to climb the 'corporate ladder' this is not for you.

    Advice to Management

    Too many VPs being brought in from the outside rather than promoted from the inside. VPs are great, however they create work for everyone else - we're not hiring many folks below the VPs - so more VPs means conflicts for priorities within the groups that need to get the work done. Slow down the hiring.
