The experience was very challenging as the regional management support was unwilling to support.

I worked at Netflix full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

The pay rate is excellent.

Cons

the time constraints are tight, the margin of error was not there and the ramifications of failure, be it machine issues, management issues, transportation issues were very harsh. Errors should be minimized, but most problems are out of the control of the management team such as a truck breaking down or a computer crashing.

    I worked at Netflix full-time

    Pros

    •  Great compensation package
    •  Free lunch
    •  Free cell phone

    Cons

    •  The company culture is very cold hearted, they let people go ALL THE TIME, sometimes for good
       reasons, most of the time not.
    •  The environment is extremely political that makes it hard to focus on doing a good job.
    •  A lot of employees are rather negative about the workplace and very open about looking for a job.

    I have been working at Netflix full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The best part about working at Netflix is the people. I've worked at both Microsoft and Amazon before coming to Netflix, and the people at Netflix are of a higher quality. Each person seems to be very good at what they do, and I feel like I can learn from them. I never realized before what a joy it is to work with great people. Other great things about Netflix are high salary and free meals.

    Cons

    There isn't much of a career path. If you want to be a manager or director, you might not have much success at Netflix. I view Netflix as a place where people come to work during the day and then go home to their families at night.
