I worked at Netflix full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

-Freedom and Responsibility
-Able to telecommute

Cons

-Very (VERY) cut throat
-Upper management doesn't support staff
-HR allows upper management to oust existing employees when a new director is hired and wants to bring his former staff over

Advice to Management

-Show a little more respect towards employees that actually follow the company values and culture
-Management does not practice what they preach (my 360 review from my manager was awesome, however, I managed to hear through the grapevine that he was unhappy with my performance)

    I worked at Netflix full-time

    Pros

    •  Great compensation package
    •  Free lunch
    •  Free cell phone

    Cons

    •  The company culture is very cold hearted, they let people go ALL THE TIME, sometimes for good
       reasons, most of the time not.
    •  The environment is extremely political that makes it hard to focus on doing a good job.
    •  A lot of employees are rather negative about the workplace and very open about looking for a job.

    I have been working at Netflix full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The best part about working at Netflix is the people. I've worked at both Microsoft and Amazon before coming to Netflix, and the people at Netflix are of a higher quality. Each person seems to be very good at what they do, and I feel like I can learn from them. I never realized before what a joy it is to work with great people. Other great things about Netflix are high salary and free meals.

    Cons

    There isn't much of a career path. If you want to be a manager or director, you might not have much success at Netflix. I view Netflix as a place where people come to work during the day and then go home to their families at night.

    Advice to Management

    Make the stock price go back up!
