    I have been working at Netflix full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    High base salary; high competitive technologies; very talent co-works

    Cons

    Everything seems to be ad-hoc and move way too fast. The technical manager are very aggressive but sometime lacking the log-term vision for the tream. No job security. Even the Directors and VPs can be let go anytime.

    Advice to Management

    Consolidate you long-term vision, not just short-term solutions. Facilitate your team member's career development, not just use them like a contractor.

    I have been working at Netflix full-time

    Pros

    People are incredibly smart, but also dedicated to success -- it's easy to get a director or VP of a function in a sit down to help you on a project they're not even leading.

    Cons

    Very, very fast paced. Sometimes speed is used as an excuse to cover up lack of quality and consistency.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes you need to slow down to speed up. Teams can ramp incredibly quickly from 20 to 60 people in 6 months, and many can get lost in the shuffle.

    I have been working at Netflix full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Literally just the pay, its over market and thats where the problems come in.

    Cons

    Its as if they build this up as some caring enviroment, but its allllll lies. I would never have came here if not for the pay and the promise of different and unique in terms of call centers. There are many others that work here and feel the same, that this place is literally garbage at actually caring for the people they hire. If you do wanna pursue any sort of job here, don't ever try to talk to anyone that is un management about any problems you may be having, they will threaten your job status immediately. This has happened to myself and others. 0/10 wouldn't recommend.

    Advice to Management

    Stop acting like this place is so relaxed and chill, too many of your employees are actually afraid of being fired or afraid of upper management which is sickening.

    Pros

    The culture of Freedom and Responsibily really does exits at Netflix. If you are a passionate engineer who likes to solve hard problems, you will love Netflix.

    Cons

    The main location is in Los Gatos, and working remotely full-time is currently not allowed.

    Advice to Management

    Consider piloting a full-time remote engineering hire to gauge the success. Allowing remote employment as an option could remove a barrier that prevents some very talented folks from applying.
