    You're not likely to be hired with 3YOE. Not impossible; but incredibly unlikely. Career growth at Netflix is an area of tension because everyone is hired at a "senior level". While you will receive feedback to improve performance, Netflix does not do PIP. You get a severance package.

    "Succeeding on a dream team is about being effective, not about working hard. Sustained “B” performance, despite an “A” for effort, gets a respectful severance package. Sustained “A” performance, even with modest level of effort, gets rewarded." -- publically available Netflix culture deck

      If Netflix don’t do Pip, why would the employees get a severance package? In Pip, employees at Amazon get severance package. What is the typical yoe required at Netflix to be eligible? I have 5.5 yoe. How is the wlb at Netflix?

      There's no PIP because there's no official process. Netflix is vehemently anti-process. You will get feedback before termination, but it won't come in the form of an official PIP. WLB is great. You manage it. You spend however much time you need to sustain impact within your team.

      WLB is great if you are an A player. Check the clutch deck above again. You are not asked to work hard, you are asked to be effective.

    There are many other companies that pay same or more than Netflix.

      Snap most likely, cannot match Netflix offer. With 5.5 yoe, Netflix offered me 465k base. Snap hasn't comeback with their offer yet, but it seems highly improbable that they will match. Snap at NYC, not sure if that makes any difference.

      Snap L4 goes from 450 to 500k. And refreshers add up quickly.

      I was thinking it’s either Google or Microsoft. I am not sure about others. Amazon is definitely a no-no for me after working here

    WeWork (except for Masayoshi Son, his work life balance has been pretty off lately.)

      Poor people.

      WeWork should be renames as "You Work... I Enjoy... By Adam"

      Son knows if he doesn't get the Vision Fund investment back, the Saudis are going to come with meat cleavers. What a shitty low life for a billionaire! All thanks to WeWork!
