    I have been working at Netflix full-time

    Pros

    - Paycheck - So many good people - Such a great service - Hope

    Cons

    I have been working for a year at Netflix. I've seen what was supposed to be very mature people, sharing absolutely almost no contact that anyone would qualify as "human". Sure, that sounds hyperbolic, let me develop (and maybe cherry-pick a little). Have you heard about our culture? The one about giving candid feedback? - I have seen people complaining of behavior they literally demonstrated themselves in the...

    Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Los Gatos, CA

    I have been working at Netflix full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The best part about Netflix is that they try to pay 20% more than everybody else, so the compensation is good. They are not shy about spending money, so travel is business class, you'll get a new MacBook Pro every year, etc. The people there tend to be very nice, the catered lunch is delicious, and so forth. While there is still a lot of action in Los Gatos building the technology (although arguably it is becoming...

    Cons

    Netflix has very strange politics, because people's jobs are at the whim of their manager. In other words, if a manager decides that a particular report is no longer a "star," he or she will get a package. So, given that employees are not stupid, there is a lot of kissing up, resulting in a lot of comedy. Netflix believes in "360 feedback," but everybody I know only does that to their peers, and they become very political...

    It's creepy when management sends out letters to their reports that read, "today is X's last day at Netflix and I fired him/her because of...."

          I have been working at Netflix full-time for more than 10 years

          Pros

          I'm working on one of Netflix's most popular animated show right now!

          Cons

          the schedule is a bit crazy. We're only doing 10 episodes rather than 13.

          Advice to Management

          I appreciate getting paid OT but it would be better to just stretch out the schedule a bit.

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

            Pros

            Beautiful office Amazing colleagues and team leaders Good pay Lunch, breakfast, drinks, snacks even fresh popcorn for only €2 a day which is deducted from your salary Team outings Paid travel expenses 3 breaks You’re allowed to take a break if you had a an abusive customer You can change shifts with your colleagues You can watch Netflix during work Free Netflix for a year and longer if you stay in company

            Cons

            There are days where you have a lot of calls so it might be a little bit intense If you don’t set your preferences or if they won’t get accepted you can work 3 months or more in a row only late shifts There is a LOT to learn, the two week training prepares you for only the most common issues customers call about From time to time you’ll get some abusive customers
