I have been working at Netflix full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Very smart, talented coworkers
Tons of opportunity if you're willing to work for it
One of the most open companies I've ever worked for
Moves fast, usually makes the right decisions
Still a great value despite all that price increase business
Willing to admit they've made mistakes and change direction if need be

Cons

On the job 24/7
Occasional whiplash changes in direction for major projects
You'll see some really smart, talented people let go from time to time, due to reorgs, etc.

    I worked at Netflix full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I wanted to put in my two cents because, unlike the other reviewers, I had a mostly positive experience working at Netflix. I was hired as a temporary worker during the summer and only left to go back to school. The initial training was very good and it was easy to get help when needed on an ongoing basis. I got regular, useful, feedback from my manager and my coworkers were also very helpful. The pay was very good (as a temporary employee I made $13 an hour, and permanent employees get $14 min). The benefits as a temp. employee were also very good.

    Cons

    All of my cons are due to the nature of the job, and not Netflix itself. Customers often get frustrated when calling tech support and they take it out on who they are talking you. I've done it myself. I almost lost my voice a couple of times from talking so much, but I didn't meet anyone else with that problem. Most of the employees also worked evenings, weekends or both because those are the high-call-volume times. I personally worked swing shift Wed. though Sun.
