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

    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 (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    As long as you are working on your action plans you are golden. Great values. Super easy. Laid back environment. Unlimited flex shift available. Totally affordable benefits

    Cons

    Lack of tenure benefits. Attendance policy is a joke. PCI compliance is tight

    Advice to Management

    Change the attendance policy to a point system instead of a limited "paid emergency hour" set up. People with multiple kids struggle with this set up. Kids and families with kids get sick a lot. Give the people who have been there more than 3 years want to stay. Give tenure benefits.

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

    Pros

    Freedom of responsibility given to all employees making it very easy to do your job properly and with ownership.

    Cons

    Intense culture there. Very fast paced. "Be one of us..."

    Advice to Management

    Fully explain each role to new hires, better

    Pros

    Great, nice people! Flexible and exciting environment

    Cons

    Sort of all over the place, too many cooks in the kitchen, seemingly just throw money at problems

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

    Pros

    Netflix treated employees like adults. We had a 5k travel ceedit card and travel approvals were unnecessary. They trusted employees to travel as needes

    Cons

    Stressful timelines but worth the effort. Medical Insurance waa not included, but 10k a year was added to obtain medical insurance

    Advice to Management

    Yearly 360 reviews were an outlet to make for a unfriendly environment with managers and need to be revamped

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

    Pros

    + Culture is extraordinary, no yelling allowed, respect for all demanded, smiles down the hallways, hard workers, creators of extraordinary things, all people want to do is bring our subscribers joy.
    + I feel like I can learn from each and every person, always
    + Sounds weird, but I feel like I deserve to be here after all of my hard work
    + Netflix makes me feel like I'm the best person for my job
    + Culture of feedback, you never need to wonder where you stand
    + Inclusion. Lower level people are in every meeting, are extremely included and encouraged to take on more responsibility.
    + Pay is more than I'd get anywhere else for my position
    + Benefits
    + Stock Options

    Cons

    Non really... I guess sometimes the free lunch has delicious ravioli that I'm not thrilled about letting myself eat.

    Advice to Management

    I've known several people that have been recruited online for phone interviews. Often times their takeaway is negative because they just never hear back... on a job they're interested in but never even sought out. A little confusing to people when this happens.

    Pros

    GREAT compensation and benefits
    Exciting challenges.
    Transparent about company.

    Cons

    Going through a transition from being a media delivery company to media production company. Some culture being lost in that transition.
