Operations Manager-DVD Hub

Operations Manager (Former Employee)
Dallas, TX (US)

I worked at Netflix full-time for more than a year

ProsCompletely on your own for running the business, making day to day decisions on employees (hiring and firing)

ConsHigh pressure, high stress, little to no room for advancement. High turnover in the management ranks and the front line employees get almost no benefuts. You have unlimited vacation but never get a chance to use it. Micromanaged by every person above you unless things fgo wrong-then you are on your won.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou have great managers int he feild. Let them do the job you hired them to, reward them for the 10-14 hour days, and set back and reap the harvest of their efforts in the feild. Also, as many hub managers as you have turnover, you might need to look at the operational set-up and ask yourself why the average lifesapn of a manager is 12-18 months!!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

I worked at Netflix full-time for more than 5 years

Clear, well-articulated strategy… 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… Advice to Senior Management: Keep hiring and growing stars across all areas of the… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
