Huge beat and up 6% or more after bell.

Seems like bad wlb at Amazon or Netflix really helps company revenue even engineers keep complaining.

    It's very paradoxical. Amazon egnineers complain and crib so much on blind. But the company keeps churning money, quarter after quarter.

      No paradox here. Its how they built the Taj Mahal, on the blood and bones of slaves.

    People are free to leave if they want to, but rising stock prices keep them here. And if they leave, there are 1000s of minions to replace them.

    As long as Shareholders needs are met, stock price will go up at least in the short term. Wlb will come back to haunt them in the long run.

      They never have and never will care about WLB. It’s not in their DNA

    Lol so glad I'll be joining an amazon subsidiary soon. Reap all the benefits of the stock while people at amazon slave away.

      What makes you think a subsidiary is any different

      Knowing how amazon treats their employees, let's just say I have my sources and am fairly confident it will be significantly better than amazon

    The way I see it is work at rest vest company, and use saving to buy amazon Netflix stocks, I enjoy my life, and guys from amazon and Netflix will work hard to keep their stocks up and make me rich.

      You won’t buy as much stock as we get RSUs.. it’s easier said than done

      Yes, if stock drops we don’t lose as much, basically low risk low reward.

      I know, just questioning the armchair analyst. Wlb is fine for most here, and I doubt the correlation with our earnings

    I think you can either have hyper growth or good WLB, not both.
