I have been working at Netflix full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

It's like working for a very well funded startup.
If you're good, this company will boost your career lightyears ahead.
Compensation and perks are just right. No lavish lunches, just good organic food to keep you focused on business. No laundry service. It's not taking over your life.
Very fast growing company. Lots of room to grow and lots of opportunity (if you look).
Visibility - top down, you see everything. There are no secrets in this company. Very helpful if you know how to use this to your advantage.

Cons

If you're not good, you won't survive here.
If you have issues with your people skills, you won't survive here.
If you need hand-holding, someone to constantly point you in the right direction, you'll be directed to the door (while holding your hand).
You'll have to manage your work/life balance. Some people just don't know what 'unlimited vacation' means.

Advice to Management

Keep up the great work.

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

    Pros

    It is an OK environment to work in for a call center. Desk job, no personal electronic devices allowed while on shift (no cell phones, mp3 players, etc...), unlimited streaming plan with 8-out DVD/blu-ray plan, great co-workers and good system to get assistance with issues the rep does not know how to handle

    Cons

    Rude customers, reviews/performance based on customers opinions of you
