    Ich arbeite bei Netflix (Vollzeit)

    Pros

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

    Kontras

    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 following days. But I have also seen these feedbacks resulting in tears both in the eyes of HR persons or fellow engineers. How human does that sound? Have you heard about our culture? The one about not tolerating brilliant jerks? I have nonetheless seen angriness and frustration, expressed in private, public and meeting. People rejecting new ideas by default, like, any ideas they wouldn't have worked themselves on for days wouldn't count. Even if those ideas are from the best examples in the industry or academics. How many publications/contributions have you seen from Netflix to computer science in general? How does it compare against any other company of that size in the Bay Area? Can you imagine either the real insecurity (x)or the lack of innovation that could lead to this situation? Except for a few managers, directors or VPs feeling free enough to behave at work in the same way than how they live, almost every engineer I have been interacting with, have shared as little as possible about their private life. The rare exceptions of interpersonal exchange ends up around some sort of competitive behavior: Who is the most geeky, sportive, owns the fastest car/biggest house/visited the strangest place. I've heard workaholic people complaining about ambitious peers who were over-managing, over-working to get even more work to do after. I feel like we're past workaholism at this point. Maybe there are a lot of shy people! Maybe there is a culture of fear, not only of being fired, but also a fear of interacting with people going to be fired. Maybe it's all in my head, maybe people giving 5 stars to their experience here don't care the human aspect of a company. And maybe they're right. What about your crush, your fears, your desires for the future, your appetite for life? I've been blessed to work in enough large companies to know that the behavior that I'm seeing in Netflix is not a healthy one. I've also been lucky enough to work in other industries more socializing than tech and I can tell that Netflix has a lot to do on that side, and off-sites or team meeting won't solve that problem. I am afraid about the tragic, but inevitable consequences of the ways people operate in this company: I guess that the day the worst will happen, it will be addressed in an impersonal memo by Reed; followed-up by 1 or 2 reminders during offsites. Possibly commented by HR in a Q&A document. And move on. This company seems as reactive in its management of people as it is proactive in its business operations. I still work at Netflix though, not only for the paycheck, but because I hope. I hope it will change. The needed change can't happen from a candid feedback, a Q&A, or only from inside. Change has to come from everyone, including people who take time to read comments like this one. Netflix has so many good people and offers such a great service. As a curious Netflix employee reading this review: think about your past, isn't there a big human thing that you would love to feel again in your current company that you've felt in the past? As a candidate: think about what would be a good question to ask to that HR partner once your package is almost here to be offered to you, think about that comment you make at the end of an interview when you're being asked by an engineer: "Do you have any question for me?" What Netflix needs is an inception, something that anyone and everyone would think about after leaving the call or the room they were sharing with you. Ask yourself, and then the others, the question you should ask if you think you want to spend a good amount of your life and energy in the place you're applying for. - Will I learn and contribute to the knowledge of other's? Even outside the company? - Will I see emotional responses from my peers? Will that be for other reasons than being fired or bluntly criticized? - Will I find a friendly environment that will nurture my appetite for life? - What is the amount of emotional interaction (celebrating, sharing, playing) to expect from a company whose service is the best to "entertain"? - Do androids dream of electric sheep?

    „Netflix is not for everybody”

    Ich arbeite seit mehr als 3 Jahren bei Netflix (Vollzeit)

    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 mature, as streaming is a commodity), the real drama is in Los Angeles, relating to content.

    Kontras

    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 with their management chain.

    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...."

    Employees are trusted and treated as adults, not micromanaged. Pay is fantastic. The company actually believes in diversity. Netflix is well respected by everyone.

    Keep making good strategic bets.

    Pros

    - Managers tell you what needs to be done and why, giving you the freedom to decide how to achieve the goals. - Deadlines are reasonable and rarely require late nights or weekends. - Very little process getting in the way of coding. - No junior engineers, no slackers allowed. - Managers are very willing to fire employees who do not get their jobs done or who have bad attitude, so everyone is good at their job... and easy to work with. - Base-pay is at least double what you're currently making (though there are no RSUs)

    Kontras

    - It lacks some of the fun corporate secrets that Apple & Google have - The only thing that will grow is your salary. No real opportunity for a bigger/better title.

    Rat an das Management

    - Do not lower hiring standards or you will lose that magic.

    Pros

    Netflix pays top of market, the atmosphere is stellar, with lots of free food and swag, many stunning colleagues and several dysfunctional ones, especially in middle management.

    Kontras

    Expect to work 60+ hours a week regularly. Passive management communication styles can sometimes let you know that it is still not enough. So that lowers the hourly rate of their top market pay. The Netflix Culture is far more marketing than reality. It is a sheen under which it's politics as usual. CS seems more dysfunctional and adrift than the rest of the company. Surprisingly mediocre middle management there... who use politics and cliques to cling to power. They will tell you everything is great right up to the moment they release you. Keep your head down and trust no one, and you will probably make the five year average for employment period. After which you will realize you have been working with your head in a noose the entire time.
