The truth about Netflix salaries

Netflix does not hire senior people outside management. If they do, they are hired despite their experience, because managers are the only team leads. All of the high salaries are people who have been there for a few years because the raise is 100k a year up to about 600.

Netflix doesn't hire anyone over 400k. They count mandatory health benefits and 401k as base so the number the recruiter gives is around 425k.

So it's like working a 160/hr contract, which is great but not exceptional.

    Your grocery sources are wrong. I’m a new hire that doesn’t have people reporting to me and I make much more TC than when at Facebook. Even accounting for all the fringe benefits (food, healthcare, etc).

      OP you’ve made it pretty clear in this thread why Netflix didn’t hire you. Hint: it has nothing to do with your being too senior.

    Specifically the OP was rejected by Netflix recruiter screen. Now he’s confident that because he was rejected that it must be that Netflix does not hire senior people. He then tells lies about the salary because he just can’t believe it.

    Desperate guy, this OP. Stop obsessing over Netflix. They don’t want you, so leave it alone. There are plenty of other jobs, this isn’t a good match, simple as that. It’s like when you like a girl and she doesn’t like you, you can’t force it.

    @Albertsons, you keep saying that and it’s not true. I have been a tech lead for 5 years and leading multiple teams even most recently. I proudly put that on my resume and Netflix called me back the next day. I’ve passed the recruiter screen, hiring manager talks, technical phone screen and I have an on-site next week. The whole time I’ve talked at length about my leadership abilities but how my interest is IC. They fully understood and liked my input with them so far.

    Just because someone has leadership doesn’t mean Netflix won’t interview them. Myself and the other guy in this thread are proof of that. Will you drop it now?

      That isn't the issue. The problems Netflix os solves don't even exist anymore, circuit breakers and such are part of an app mesh. Gateways are 90s

    Again OP? You are obsessed about not getting hired at Netflix. Can confirm with my offer letter that you’re just talking out your ass.
