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

Pros

-Really smart, motivated, and reliable team members
-Great salary
-You'll learn a lot from the people you work with
-Fantastic product

Cons

-Senior management makes decisions without checking in with the SME's within the company.
-People get fired much faster without much warning. If you have a good manager, you will be happy to have the people who aren't pulling their weight gone quickly without causing too many problems.
-It's hard to leave the office during the day, if needed. There is a big focus on face time.

Advice to Management

-Before implementing an idea, check with your highly compensated SME's.
-Make sure you are listening to and keeping a pulse on your customers.
-Give employees more trust so that the high performers don't constantly feel like they could be fired for any small mistake. This kind of fear leads to a nervous, management pleasing environment.

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

    Pros

    Nice bling
    Decent pay
    very good ticket software

    Cons

    The only place I've seen this much churn is at a fruit packing shed. The best manager I've ever had was fired for no particular reason, along with his boss and several other employees. If you could not make the customers give you a good review (hard to do when they did maintenance every Tuesday at 10pm), you would be fired.

    Advice to Management

    Quit holding people accountable for things outside of their control.There's no point in a liberal vacation policy if people are fired for taking a few days off. I will not work for a company that does not have compassion for its employees.
