Current Employee - Director of Engineering in Los Gatos, CA (US)
Current Employee - Director of Engineering in Los Gatos, CA (US)

I have been working at Netflix full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Leading edge technology, not afraid to do things differently if it makes sense, agile and low process overhead for getting things done. Clear focus on a simple business model, with clear responsibilities and freedom on how to deliver.

Cons

You have to be comfortable with rapid change, ambiguity and have enough self confidence to cope with the culture. It's not a place for people who like to know what the rules are and follow them.

    Former Employee - Csr1 in Hillsboro, OR (US)

    I worked at Netflix full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good pay for the work
    Laid back environment with lax dress code
    great employee benefits
    free/cheap food in the breakroom

    Cons

    When something changes, employees find out when the customers do.
    Mass layoffs when call volume decreases.
    I've heard they don't do re-hires.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your employees heads up on major company changes so they can be properly prepared/trained to deal with those calls.
    Also, don't lay off good employees the week they are supposed to be converted. It gets their hopes up and I felt kinda blindsided because I was continually getting positive feedback and was told my conversion was pretty much locked in.
