    I worked at Netflix full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Freedom is truly amazing when it works well. When working with the best ad brightest, who are also responsible and high-performing, it's so refreshing and inspiring.

    Cons

    So many people take advantage of the culture. It takes time for the glow to wear off, and then you realise the conmen out to play the system, and the politics masked behind "feedback" and "sports team" culture. People are fired not for performance, but because of internal power struggles. As an I/C, it becomes very demoralising because there is not much you can do to change it, or protect the good leaders or managers. Also, there is little to no career growth/mentorship. You are hired for one thing, and paid well for it, but you will only do that one thing until you leave. Diversity and inclusion is a farce, and focused on US definitions of what D&I should be. In the other offices in Asia or Europe, D&I is virtually non-existent and local representation and leadership is not protected or appreciated. As far as the company is concerned, Americans can do it all, in every country and industry. Caucasians are hired and promoted above people of colour, even in countries where they are the minority.

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

    Pros

    Netflix is a really nice place to work. You have all the freedom in the world to speak and work as you wish. The perks and benefits are good. The culture and experience to work with so many talented engineers is a privilege. I was fired from Netflix and would not even put a pinch of blame on the company. The unfortunate turn of events was due to my incompatibility with the work.

    Cons

    1. Heavier words than work sometimes.

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

    Pros

    Fast paced, multicultural teammates. Open bar.

    Cons

    I swear they want their employees to be Kim Jong Un. They encourage staff to compete and criticise among with one another, and constantly pushing partnered agencies to deliver all the "best-in-class' works. All you do in the office is attending meetings and brown-nosing your upper management.
