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

    Pros

    Amazing benefits, compensation, and culture. Some forms of compensation are a little unusual compared with other companies in the Bay Area (e.g. the medical 'allowance' and risky optional options plan), but there is a good argument for the way Netflix does things.

    Cons

    The commute to Los Gatos.

    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

    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.

    I have been working at Netflix as a contractor (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Netflix of one of the best and famous company in the world. It such an owner to be the part of the company even to be a wardrobe girl.

    Cons

    I think I don’t have any negative comments because I never been in this company before. But I am a hardworking women, so no matter what happen I will make it right, and never give up for the company, and always loyal.

    Advice to Management

    Accept those who have big spirits and big motivation to work at netflix, not just want to be famous but want those who want company to be better, have commitment. Give them chance.

    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

    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

    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.
