What makes Netflix a FANG?

Seriously though. What is it that makes Netflix be considered a FANG?
Is it the pay? The working culture? The innovation (really?)? Free food/perks?

I barely see posts talking about interviews and salaries for netflix.

When i look at google, amazon, and facebook (and even microsoft and apple) I see big companies with their hands all over the place, fast paced innovation, 50k + employees world wide, lots of career opportunities and growth.

I never heard anything about netflix here in blind.
It is a genuine question. I have nothing against netflix. I just want to know what makes it a fang.

TC: pretty damn low, but I live in paradise and don’t complain. 🏝🏝🏝

    I have worked for Facebook and Netflix and also got offers from amazon and apple. I’ll have to say I got the highest total Comp from Netflix hands down

    It should be GAM. Apple, Facebook and Netflix will die in next decade as they have very narrow moat.

      I think Apple revealed they use Google Cloud Storage (along with other storage) in iCloud, I think your facts are overblown

      I agree that IBM does not have all their eggs into one basket and their moat is better than Apple who's heavily dependent on hope that customers will upgrade only to new iPhone and not to Pixel or Samsung. That's not moat. There's so many Google, Microsoft and Amazon products much ahead of their competition.

    You're right, it should be AAMG.

    “FAANG is an acronym for the market's five most popular and best-performing tech stocks, namely Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix and Alphabet’s Google. “

    Just google it seriously.

      I know. I had googled it. But people here keep talking about applying to fang like if they were the top companies. I was looking to get some insight on what would make netflix be at the same position than the rest of faangs, aside from stock

    Netflix’s market growth got it mentioned by a TV entertainer that coined the term.
