Netflix Directing Employees To Quit If They Don’t Like Its Content

Netflix is giving their employees a new ultimatum: work on our content regardless of whether you agree with it or quit.

“Not everyone will like—or agree with—everything on our service. While every title is different, we approach them based on the same set of principles: we support the artistic expression of the creators we choose to work with; we program for a diversity of audiences and tastes; and we let viewers decide what’s appropriate for them, versus having Netflix censor specific artists or voices,” Netflix wrote in its updated part of cultural memo.

“Depending on your role, you may need to work on titles you perceive to be harmful. If you’d find it hard to support our content breadth, Netflix may not be the best place for you,” the company added. “As employees we support the principle that Netflix offers a diversity of stories, even if we find some titles counter to our own personal values. Depending on your role, you may need to work on titles you perceive to be harmful. If you’d find it hard to support our content breadth, Netflix may not be the best place for you,” the streaming giant added.

This comes amid reports of Netflix working to introduce cheaper ad-supported plans sooner than expected. The streaming giant could roll them out in the fourth quarter (Q4) of 2022. The company has told its employees that it intends to introduce an ad-supported plan by the end of this year and this comes quicker than what was previously indicated. Earlier last month, Netflix announced that it would bring changes to the platform that include low-cost plans with advertisements and minimise password sharing.
