    Current Employee, more than 3 years

    Fast paced, niche, performance based culture

    Sep 18, 2021 - Senior Security Engineer in Los Gatos, CA

    Pros

    - Performance culture, so you don't see many people coasting or rest&vesting. - Every IC is the same title so you can be in a room with folks who have been at the company for 10-15 years, or are giants in the industry, and your voice is heard at the same pitch as theirs. - Fantastic engineering culture so, along with outputting good work, you also get to learn the right and wrong way to solve a problem. - Data drives features and everything is A/B tested, so you know why your feature made it out or didn't. - One of the best compensation in the Valley with an unheard of compensation strategy (personal top of market is the most rational way to pay people for their work). - Expense whatever you need to help you do your job better, as long as you're practicing responsibility. - Brand recognition

    Cons

    - Ecosystem is massive so it's hard to know how to do everything. - Little documentation so it's hard to know how something works adhoc (you have to go to the team and ask questions). - Because everyone is at the same title, growth is horizontal (you will build skills but not climb the ladder). You need to work with your manager to draw a goal plan. - Outside perspective of Netflix culture is that it's "cutthroat"; which is not the right word. It's "lean" - meaning there isn't room for folks to coast. Folks do get let go, but I have yet to see/hear an invalid reasons for them to be let go.

    Great company and people, but don't expect career development

    Sep 8, 2021 - Director in Los Gatos, CA

    Pros

    Freedom, responsibility, visibility, important work, autonomy, great people, free food!

    Cons

    Many senior leaders get promoted (rightly so) for the great work they do, but then they turn out to be so-so people managers. Also no formal career development options.

    Pros

    The motto "Freedom and responsibility" is deeply lived at all levels of the organization.

    Cons

    Because individuals are responsible for their own career development, it can be somewhat difficult to advance into different positions.

    Pros

    Allowed to make things right and not sell things to clients. Make goods were not limited like other companies. Customer satisfaction was priority.

    Cons

    Call length is killer. Can't help but complain when you get stuck on a 2 hour call. Stats tracked and ranked accordingly
