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

    Pros

    Rockstar coworkers, no brilliant jerks
    excellent pay, no vacation policy or tracking
    fast paced environment, minimal distractions and no unnecessary process - get loads of work done everyday.
    I can tell my friends I work in showbiz :)

    Cons

    None that I can think of, really. I guess the culture might take a bit adjusting to if you are not used to it.

    "Culture of High Performance"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Training and Development Manager in Salt Lake City, UT
    Current Employee - Training and Development Manager in Salt Lake City, UT

    Pros

    What makes this location great is that the culture of high performance really helps you to grow, excel, learn and develop at a high level. While it can feel demanding at times, this actually has helped me to grow, offering many opportunities for growth that apply to any type of job I may want in the future.

    Cons

    As stated above, the job is high performance. Which means that the jobs here may not be the right fit for everyone. But for the right person, it's a great place.

    Pros

    The best company I've ever worked at. Read the culture deck - every word of it is true and actively practiced.

    Cons

    None. Workload can be a bit intense at times but that's to be expected.

    Advice to Management

    As we expand internationally, make sure that we maintain our culture and values

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    The company culture makes every day a superior work experience. I have stellar colleagues and interesting challenges every day. I look forward to coming to work every day.

    Cons

    High performance is expected at all times which is not challenging by itself, but it can wear you down if you don't handle stress well.

    I worked at Netflix full-time

    Pros

    Great people and great culture. Check out the Netflix Culture Deck at www.slideshare.net/reed2001/culture-1798664. They practice what they preach with "Context, not control", "Freedom and responsibility", and hiring fast/firing fast.

    Cons

    For folks looking for a "safe" company with which to work, Netflix is not your place (nor does it want to be). Benefits are great (including a lucrative stock purchase plan), but like pro-athletes, you can't think of Netflix as a cradle-to-grave company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep taking risks and keep hiring the best!

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

    Pros

    Extremely competent colleagues. Fast-paced. Incredibly transparent. The culture is amazing. Benefits are amazing. Everyone here wants to do a good job. Management is being serious about diversity and it shows in their hiring.

    We're given incredibly autonomy to execute how we see best. I've never even heard of a company that gives individual contributors such autonomy!

    I bet if we decided to build a spacecraft, we could pivot and have an MVP in orbit by the end of 2017.

    It's also pretty neat to work for a movie studio, basically. Certainly much different than most companies in the Valley.

    Cons

    It's a little far down in the South Bay (Los Gatos), but there's a shuttle from SF.

    Deadlines can be intense and you really have to be an advocate for your time. If you're not an assertive person (or can't learn to be) then you will probably be overworked here.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to stick to your guns, as far as the culture deck is concerned.

    Pros

    High performance environment - you're given a huge amount of responsibility and ownership to drive your work. You're able to see the direct impact you're making to the company, as a result.

    The company is incredibly transparent -- everyone in the company, no matter the "level," could tell you our business direction.

    Stunning colleagues. High bar for hiring, so you're working amongst smart, driven, and passionate folks.

    Cons

    High-performance environment -- expectations are high and you run full-speed, most of the time.
    Not the right kind of environment for everyone.
