    Netflix always has pressure of getting fired and mostly it’s a surprise. Regret my decision of joining on H1B, planning on leaving soon.

      Yeah I was listening to a podcast with the former head of HR that designed their policy seems pretty damn ruthless but I guess whatever keeps the lights on?

    RIP Amazon and Netflix. I thought Facebook hands out more PIPs judging by the number of posts.

      FB is more intense than Amazon. Many Amazonians are in happy hours now who aren’t voting. On the other hand many FB-ians are committing code right now, so they’re not voting either!
