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

Pros

24 hours a day available for setting schedule. I was paid very well through the temp agency and then was given a good raise after I was hired on. There was also a lot of windows and a cheery looking appearance.

Cons

Constant changes in team organization and fear filled environment. There were mental health hotline tear aways in the bathrooms. It wasn't an easy place to work because management constantly hounded you if you made a single mistake.

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

    Pros

    Company culture strives to minimize process in favor of trusting employees and giving them room to run. This results in an organization powered by experienced self-starters who are incredible people to learn from. It provides the maturity of a larger company with talented people, while still enabling considerable creative freedom. (Applies to Los Gatos HQ)

    Cons

    Coordination can sometimes be weak due to "loosely coupled" culture. It is very easy to get out of sync on goals and expectations with teammates and managers unless one is very vigilant and communicates well. Most managers try to adhere to the culture, but each deviates in their own idiosyncratic way.

    Advice to Management

    Stronger cross-function consistency as regards to commitment to culture would be ideal. Product, Content, Marketing, and Finance have all substantially deviated in their own ways.
