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

    Pros

    Great friendly fun culture. Everyone had a free to be "me" vibe with the clearance for tattoos, piercings, and artsy trendy motif. For the most part everyone that worked there was friendly and had a great attitude. Super rad break rooms stocked with free gourmet teas and coffees, apples, bananas, and popcorn. They also had flat screens with Netflix streaming in the breakrooms as well. Free Netflix max package with 8 DVD's at a time and Streaming. Doubletime for holiday work.

    Cons

    Call center KPI's. Lay offs. Heavy use of temporary workers.

    I have been working at Netflix full-time

    Pros

    The freedom & responsibility culture is real. It is nice to go to battle alongside fully-formed adults who are the best at what they do. The product is amazing and incredibly fun to market. Reed is an incredible leader….focused and effective.

    Cons

    While one of the plus sides of the debate culture is gathering multiple perspectives on your work, the downside is that you can get slowed down by the need to accommodate a myriad of stakeholders. Marketing leadership also hasn't quite found the right balance of art and science. While Netflix has become an entertainment brand, it should be careful to not set up an organization that acts/looks/feels exactly like a Hollywood company. If you are not in L.A. and/or working on creative, it has become increasingly difficult to feel like you are truly part of the Netflix marketing organization.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that marketing leadership can flex both the right and left brain. Ensure that the CMO is willing to engage folks in all corners of the marketing organization (programmatic marketing, partner marketing, etc.)

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

    Pros

    Amazing culture, not micro managing, awesome employees, free lunches, they let you watch movies and TV shows at work! (as long as it doesn't disrupt your work flow), and it pays well.

    Cons

    There's no central design hub, so you're mostly getting work through a ticketing system. Passed down by people who aren't designers and sometimes (not often) have difficulties expressing their needs in terms that specific for designers. Also, getting full time employment is very difficult. Lots of turn around with new employees. You're considered an old timer after a year or so.

    Advice to Management

    Don't fall back on the culture too much. It can be repetitive. Also, maybe more interaction between the design teams!
