I worked at Netflix full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Walk the walk consistent with the well-articulated culture.
Very focused.
Clear, well-articulated strategy with very good execution against it.
Very transparent, both internally and externally.

Cons

A bit of a culture of fear articulated as "the sniper in the building" as some new hires and long-time employees are either bad fit or fail to grow, and are subsequently let go. Culture emphasizes experimentation, which includes needed organizational experiments, and this type of experimentation also reinforces the fear. Again, most of this well-articulated in culture deck, so no surprise.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep hiring and growing stars across all areas of the company.

    Pros

    Netflix's commitment to attracting highly-motivated, creative thinkers throughout the organization means clever solutions and great ideas can come from anywhere at anytime.

    Cons

    There is a certain pressure to perform that comes from the level of freedom granted that results in a percieved sink or swim mentality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When I left, there was very little reward or recognition given to managers who mentored or successfully developed staff.

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

    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.
