Was sad to see the company change so much in one year

Customer Service Supervisor (Former Employee)
Hillsboro, OR (US)

I worked at Netflix full-time for more than a year

ProsLots of room to make your own decisions and think on your feet

ConsWhen the price change occurred it was a cluster bomb that went off. Then it was announced the company was splitting to two (one DVD and one Streaming) and then it was announced none of that was happening. All the while customers were up in arms over this and we in management were always finding things out at the same time customers were so we had no time to prep our staff. Some very hard months for moral with our staff. Lost a lot of trust with our employee base in terms of management to subordinate relations.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure your mid-level management knows anything key before the public gets it through the blogs, etc. They have to have time to prep their staff and gain buy-in to make a successful transition occur with company changes and/or snaffus.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
