FANG - Why Netflix??

People Are in awe of FANG as employers but I do not understand why put Netflix there?
There are bigger and better companies who are more innovative by a margin than Netflix
E.g. Amazon, MSFT, Tesla, Uber etc.

I feel Netflix is just overrated and does not belong to the FANG prestige

      We do have options.

      Default of comp is base + 5% of base in options, and possibility to defer base to discounted options. It’s up to the individual.

      Earnings were fun this week

      No employer can match Netflix in pay, if you put the same percentage of compensation in equity for last 5 yrs. Obviously that depends on stock performance, and history may not repeat.

  • Amazon is already the A.

    It's a term made up by Cramer and happens to be the four companies he liked at that time. Nothing more.

    It’s because the acronym without the N may be offensive.

      What? Pinterest is not public. This is why you don’t see Uber in there.

    It’s in FAANG because of Cramer’s speculation of being a top tech-oriented performer.

    I think we as a tech community keep NetFlix in high regard because they have ridiculous base salaries.

    • Funny thing though is I don't see much improvement in Netflix. For all the stars they hire, it's pretty much the same as it was years ago. I'm sure they scaled up their back end to deal with increased traffic, and that likely created a few hard problems. But what else?

      What are all those people doing?

    People are not in awe. Google is not the best place I've ever worked. I think Netflix is fairly impressive as an engineering org based on my limited exposure to them.
