    Pros

    Excellent culture, freedom to learn and to work on exciting projects. Great compensation package. The company treats their employees well and shows their appreciation for the hard work that makes Netflix great.

    Cons

    Culture is not for everyone, so if you realize that the culture doesn't fit with you or your values, it is best for everyone if you determine that early on.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work, stay nimble and innovative. Continue to treat the employees well and good luck in the future.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, the pay is good, I can go to work in pajamas, the work is beyond simple. I appreciate the transparency about the attendance policy, you either go to work or kick rocks.

    Cons

    I sincerely dread going to work. In training everything is fun and your told numbers don't matter. In real life, numbers really matter. My first week on the phone I was pulled off the phone to "coach" my behavior. The manager told me he was concerned about my performance in a unique way.

    It is literally call after call after call. I understand that is what I signed up for, but the use of after call work is not allowed and honestly here and there it's nice to just take a breather.

    The system in place to ask a question is absurd. In lieu of explaining a situation to a senior representative, you chat while the customer is just waiting on the phone. It's really not efficient.

    It's literally 8 hours of the same phone call "my Netflix doesn't work" and me giving the same response. I am bored as sin!

    They are very transparent that you shouldn't expect a promotion for a significant amount of time.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the escalation process, it's really backwards. Also, be consistent enforcing the attendance policy. Six sick days a year is insane, even for high performers. But thanks for the transparency from the get.
