If you work at Netflix, no manager will be breathing down your neck, you can come in late and go home early, and the job allows for unlimited vacation days. But you probably won’t be working there forever. When they no longer need you, managers will pull the rug out from under you no matter how hard you worked or how valuable you’ve been for the company. The company is a lean, nimble machine that doesn’t tolerate dead weight. In this episode of NPR’s Planet Money podcast, hosts Steve Henn and Stacey Vanek Smith reveal what it’s like to work for Netflix.
