    Pros

    A company that practices what it preaches. If you have ever interviewed with Netflix or know someone who may have heard of the Netflix Culture deck. It preaches the values and focus of the company. If you search Netflix Culture deck you can find it online.

    Cons

    Freedom and Responsibility is not meant for everyone. Meaning some people need more guidance and strive when given very specific objectives.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work

    Pros

    Great co-workers and supervisors. Free coffee, tea, oatmeal, cup of noodles, and the occasional pancake breakfast. Free Netflix was a nice bonus.
    Able to surf non work websites such as imgur, facebook, and linkin while at work. Communicated with coworkers on facebook almost as often as I did thru work chat.
    Pretty chill environment considering it was a call center. Metrics were very reasonable and not that big of a challenge to reach.
    Days off weren't hard to get if they were scheduled way in advance (at least 6 weeks).

    Cons

    No pay raise the entire time I was there, everyone was paid the same rate and nobody got a pay raise unless they changed jobs. In fact our pay in benefits (used to have 10k allowance per year and anything not used was put into our paycheck) was taken away - at the same time the CEO got a $1 million bonus, hmm....
    Felt like a dead end job. No opportunity to advance beyond the call center.
    Often had to be the bearer of bad news to customers (price change, delivery changes) and found out from customers before company told us.

    Advice to Management

    Don't treat employees like they can't tell what you're really doing. We knew $1 million bonus money came out of our benefits fund. Trying to "positively position" a statement when we do that all day to customers feels demeaning. Just give it to us straight.
    Also, tell us what's happening BEFORE a customer tells us. Just makes the company look bad when they know before we do.

    Pros

    You are treated as an adult. Minimal micro management. You are expected to take the lead for your projects. Your have ample space to try out your things and PMs are willing to listen and try out your ideas via an AB test.

    Cons

    I'd love to have an on-campus gym. They do have one shared by Aventino (the apartment community next to it). Ping pong tables and Sauna bath needed :)

    Advice to Management

    You are doing a great job! Thanks for inventing such an unique culture and exercising it for more than a decade.

    Pros

    Locker room to shower in after riding bike to work. Not having to engage Sr Management who always hid on the Bridge.

    Cons

    No way for raises or growth professionally. Saw 18 Supervisors escorted out of building one by one by management, who were the first round of cuts after over staffing. High turnover. You cannot expect problems to be solved in 4:20 and basing a metric if the customers happy with a Y or N answer and only allowing 5/100 to be no was ridiculous.

    You are given the freedom to do what you think is best for the company. Smart and passionate co-workers, and a great working environment.

    Cons

    Limited career opportunity, and more pressure than a lot of the other companies.
