Only partway through, and already inspired by what I’ve seen so far. Real corporate values, and real expectations for their employees…pretty heady stuff.
i’d be interested in knowing how they plan to implement this. i imagine that netflix has a large staff of salaried employees in more than one office. i’d also be interested in an employee’s view of the actual work environment. does it feel as progressive as the this slideshow makes it seem?
i’m skeptical. their example of enron’s value statement shows that what company states its values are doesn’t necessarily reflect what the company actually does. just because netflix says it encourages these things, doesn’t mean it really will attempt to create a work environment that embodies the ideas exhibited in this slide show.
maybe i’m just cynical.
Thank you! Your remarks have been sent to Khoi.
