    I worked at Netflix

    Pros

    Compensation was good. That's about it.

    Cons

    Management is horrible. Bumbling idiots. They only know two ways to address a problem. Write an algorithm or fire people. It's a culture of firing.

    Laid back, you can be yourself whether you have blue hair, tats all over your face or the like. Free Netflix for life! And easy to move up.

    Some supervisors are very rude and pushy and stuck up. they will hire anybody.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure some supervisors after properly trained before they ruin potential candidates.

    Pros

    Very collaborative environment, great colleagues, great pay, people are adults.

    Cons

    You have to be self-driven and proactive to get trained, and a lot of training is on the job, but this is by design.

    I worked at Netflix as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Netflix was very kind to me. The environment was very friendly and relaxed. They cared about my health by providing a healthy salad lunch on a daily basis and a well stocked snack room.

    Cons

    My biggest complaint was that I could not work there for a lengthier time. They were flexible with my real life emergencies and situation. The leadership listened and understood any concerns I may have had.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I hope you guys kept doing what you were doing.

    Pros

    guaranteed hours, Free Netflix, Great benefits.
    The people that work here are pretty cool

    Cons

    boring work, your job is based on customers saying that they are satisfied with the Netflix experience which really has little to do with you. And you start at 14.hr and that is where you will stay forever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We are not cattle.

    I have been working at Netflix full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Not many left, pay is decent, oatmeal and ramen in the breakroom, that's about it.

    Cons

    Been here 5 years with top stats never had a raise but did get a pay cut. Overwhelming sense of managers whispering behind closed doors. Pretty much anyone can get fired anytime for literally any reason. Doesn't matter how good you are at your job, I haven't talked to a supervisor or manager in months. Constant calls with limited out-dated knowledge base to refer to. No notice on changes or training after initial hiring. Fear based environment. If you have any other option it's probably better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This used to be such a nice place to work... now we are cattle herded through troughs.
