    Pros

    Netflix's talent is incredibly impressive. Employees are engaged and passionate about their work. There is more of a focus on the team succeeding than individual success. It's an environment that pushes people to be their best every day. It's an environment of adults. People are given freedom to work autonomously.

    Cons

    There are no cons at Netflix

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring and retaining top talent.

    Pros

    Dynamic, fun environment with lots of thoughtful, intelligent people. It's possible to have a real impact on your field by innovating and moving fast. HR supports employees with tough interpersonal challenges.

    Cons

    When people know in their heart of hearts they are not a top performer, they can be reactive, defensive, fatalistic and bitter. Some resort to toxic behavior. I wish they had the good sense to look for a more secure, less demanding environment.

    Pros

    The interview process at Netflix was extremely enjoyable, I felt respected, inspired, and appreciated by all of the interviewers I spoke with. The process took 3 weeks in total and they were extremely accommodating when I shared that I had other offers I was considering within a deadline. I decided Netflix was the company I wanted to work for because of that great candidate experience during the interview process, highly intelligent people I interacted with along the way, unique and inspiring culture perspective and opportunity for my career. The culture at Netflix is like no other, it is a supportive environment where the best people can really grow, challenge one another, and bring new ideas to fruition. I am encouraged to share my experiences, opinions, feedback whenever possible and as a result you feel extremely valued as an employee. I look forward to coming in to work everyday and being surrounded by stunning colleagues!

    Cons

    I really don't have any cons!

    Pros

    Set your own breaks, subsidized meals, .50 raise every 6 months, Netflix cares about how their employees feel and they actually accept suggestions and advice from employees!

    Cons

    Very strict attendence, tenured or not they will fire you if you miss more then 6 days in a year!

    Advice to Management

    Look at keeping good employees instead of making them disposable because of how many people you have that want to work there!

    I have been working at Netflix full-time

    Pros

    It’s difficult to list all the pros honestly but here’s a few:

    - outstanding colleagues
    - outstanding perks
    - pay
    - everyone is open and willing to share their work and knowledge
    - great cross department and team collaboration

    I’ve been here for a while now and the honey moon stage still hasn’t worn off. I’d say a lot of the negative reviews are customer service related and they’re not a good indicator of our corporate environment.

    Cons

    There are no cons to working here. I realize it’s a per department and per org opinion but from my experiences, there have been no cons.
