Pros

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

Cons

High 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 ManagementAdvice

You 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!!

    I worked at Netflix full-time for 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.
