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

Pros

Lunch, brand that people are aware of.

Cons

Management overall is quite bad. Most people get promoted to the role based on seniority, not on actual ability to lead and mentor others.

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

    Pros

    Paydays, quitting time, seeing your superiors fail.

    Cons

    How about...an unspoken policy of fear, day in, day out. Managers that are ignorant, uneducated, selfish, and stupid. Oh, and flunkie "team supervisors" that get promoted to the position only because they know how to suck up and let themselves get abused by management...Oh, there was so much more. This is flat-out the WORST company I've ever worked for. They laid me off because of my "call time average" was 7 seconds, yes...SECONDS, over their silly weekly limit. In reality, they laid me off because I was 50, and have medical problems. Oh, I hope I live to see the day when someone sues the hell out of them. I just can't wait. I have never wanted for a company to fail, but I want them to.

    Advice to Management

    Reed, pay attention, you little weasel. Why don't you sell this company so someone with someone with a soul can run it. Are we clear? You, Dude, SUCK!!!!

    I worked at Netflix full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Amazing experience, very competitive salary, great office space cutting edge technologies.
    If you like fast moving environment and challenging task then this is a place for you. Company treats employees like adults

    Cons

    Sometimes environment is moving too fast. Unlimited vacation policy does not work in few cases. Be ready to get support calls in the middle of the night.

    Advice to Management

    Not really
