    Pros

    Open communication across teams and departments, incredible pay, decent lunches, very little process slowing you down

    High standards mean you'll see coworkers frequently get fired and worry the first six months about where you stand

    Make it clear to new employees when they are doing well to ease concerns about being let go

    I have been working at Netflix full-time

    Pros

    - tons of freedom, treated like adults
    - amazing coworkers, all experts in their fields. everyone pulls their weight
    - open / honest feedback is given to each other regularly
    - exciting challenges, disrupting media/entertainment industry

    Cons

    - the level of ambiguity is not for everyone
    - you will see people you like let go because they weren't the right fit for their role. I've made peace... it creates an environment where everyone is exceptional and not resting on their laurels. digging into why it happened dozens of times, I've always agreed with the managers decision when I have all the facts.

    Pros

    I just hit my 2 year mark at Netflix, and it has been great thus far. It has been quite the whirlwind and learning experience, and I continue to be challenged every day. The partnerships I have formed are immeasurable, and to be involved with a company changing the way entertainment content is consumed is pretty exciting.

    Biggest pro in my eyes to working here has been the people. My colleagues truly are "stunning" as the culture deck highlights. Really some of the best in the business, and everyone I collaborate with has a clear passion and drive for their work.

    Although we move at lightning speed, it pushes me to excel, and not simply coast through the day to day grind.

    Cons

    Sometimes we forget to celebrate/recognize our major accomplishments because we are always moving towards the next best thing.

    I have been working at Netflix full-time

    Pros

    Freedom and Responsibility is the fabric of the culture. The mentality to be able to make changes and shift gears quickly allows us to execute in a manner that I have never experienced before in my previous companies. The inherit trust allows me to grow and the feedback and candor allows teams to refine great ideas to execution. We are treated like adults here and you are your own police.

    Cons

    I don't have any major qualms other then a smaller detail that their isn't a gym on campus. There is a discount for the gym across the street or access to another close to campus.

    Advice to Management

    Continue giving strong feedback and hold true to scaling the culture
