A culture statement

August 17, 2009

Here is the NetFlix company culture statement: link via Bruce Eckel who says:

Netflix’ goal of creating an environment where you get to work with exceptional people is very compelling, and it gives me some insight on why my friend Carl left Google to go there.

Do yourself a favor, especially if you’re starting a new company, and go read their culture statement. It’s undoubtedly imperfect and it modifies existing company structure rather than trying to reinvent the company (as I’d like to do) but it is filled with excellent insights and ideas.

Take a look!
