    Former Employee - Vice President in Los Gatos, CA (US)
    Former Employee - Vice President in Los Gatos, CA (US)

    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.

    Former Employee - Director of Content in Los Angeles, CA (US)

    I worked at Netflix full-time (more than 3 years)

    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.
