What about Brilliant Jerks?

Going through Netflix’s latest ‘Culture‘ presentation I came across that line (slide 34), under High Performance, one of the seven aspects at Netflix. The 128 pages presentation is A MUST for any company’s C-Level and HR, and it details what matters at Netflix, paying special attention to workforce efficiency. It also deals quite bluntly with stuff other companies keep inside, like layoffs and employee retention (slide 27):

We’re a team, not a family. We’re like a pro sports team, not a kid’s recreational team. Coaches’ job at every level at Netflix (is) to hire, develop and cut smartly, so we have stars at every position.

Clear out 30min of you day and learn this presentation. You won’t regret it.
