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

    Pros

    Benefits and perks are amazing.. office food&snacks, unlimited vacation, one year maternity leave, amazing leadership by Reed.

    Cons

    No mentorship, no at the job training. Hard to get promotion because they will simply go out and hire someone instead of internally developing people

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

    Pros

    Pay is great. You work with highly motivated, driven people that are all trying to be their best. In my experience all peers are very willing to share best practices and help you be better as well.
    Benefits are great and work life balance is a real thing. Positivity is part of the culture which is infections.
    If you've ever worked for a company where you see a peer not doing much and not being held accountable for driving success those type of people will not make it which in my book is great. Accountability happens here.
    Freedom to be you and manage with your own sense of style as long as you are managing within their values.

    Cons

    Periodically you come across super competitive peers that may be stand offish for fear of sharing or getting to close to you because they want a position that you want. That competition is fierce when applying for new roles but it doesn't describe the majority of the workforce.
    Due to constantly challenging yourself and expectations to continue to be high performers you can leave mentally exhausted on a daily basis.

    Pros

    Full time job, always.

    Cons

    TMTL - Glad the call center in Oregon is gone. It was horrifying seeing others get ground up in their grist mill.

    Advice to Management

    Reed, you're a charm. The rest of your executive staff sucks.

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

    Pros

    Great pay, lots of PTO, insurance was affordable, on-site cafeteria, awesome coworkers, great managers

    Cons

    Being a team of about 50 people supporting the entire globe of customer service sites, the schedules weren't always the greatest. Weird days off, swing/graves shifts, shift bids. But it rotates every few months to make things fair. Also it was hard to get weekend days off.

    Advice to Management

    Find a better way to make the scheduling more pleasing, but other than that, nothing to complain about.

    Pros

    Fun and cool environment to work in. I miss this Job somewhat. Nothing too bad to say, I'll work here again in the future if it presents itself.

    Cons

    Metrics, because keeping up with numbers suck. Sometimes things can seem a little unfair or somewhat favoritism.
