Netflix

Accenture newbieSF

I just got offers from both Salesforce and LinkedIn, and I got an email from Netflix this morning asking me to consider them. I’m happy with the LinkedIn offer - and I want to live in the Bay Area - but am I stupid for not considering it?

    Is the Netflix role on LA? If so, can you please specify that in the post?

      Blind isn’t the place to go for “guidance” - Let’s be honest. This platform is used for people who want to know about salary ranges and who has the biggest e-peen. Don’t make it seem like people here give two rats 🐀 asses about people’s opinions. Blind is for confirmation bias.

      Hey! The Netflix role is in Los Gatos

    • I would certainly talk to, if not take the Netflix offer. Here’s why:

      1) Original content
      2) Dominant Power in the industry
      3) people
      4) superior work ethic
      5) extremely high pay
      6) prestige
      7) the experience you gain here will be like no other

      It sounds like Netflix is not an offer but an interview.

      He may not have the time or desire to do another onsite

    OP, how long did LI take to get back after onsite? I think I did well, but hiring bar seems to be too high for SSWE.. how was your interview performance in your opinion?

      Yes about a week. There’s nothing you can do, so just try to de-stress for now

      What do you mean bar is too high? 3D rainwater trap in 10 mins high? Or design Woodstock high?

    Netflix has some challenges coming up in the near future when Disney launch their own streaming service. LinkedIn has no competition and a big moat. I would go there if I were you.

    Congrats OP! I would advise to negotiate more for base from Salesforce and pressure LI. What level questions were asked in the LI interview? Were they from LI tagged Leetcode questions?

    Take the LinkedIn offer while you continue conversations with Netflix. If you fail at Netflix you still have an offer from LinkedIn

      It’s really bad form to go back on a signed offer though, right?

      It's employment on will. LinkedIn wont think "Is it really bad to fire an employee?"

      Don’t, you’ll burn a bridge for sure. I think LI has huge upside down the lane, you can always keep Netflix option, maybe they’ll even waive interviews if you re-apply around 6 month timeframe. You can re-think once you have an offer, for now since you’re in the market anyways, I’d give a shot.
