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

Pros

The pay rate is excellent.

Cons

the time constraints are tight, the margin of error was not there and the ramifications of failure, be it machine issues, management issues, transportation issues were very harsh. Errors should be minimized, but most problems are out of the control of the management team such as a truck breaking down or a computer crashing.

    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.
