Default Netflix

So my friend got an offer at Netflix and says that his salary is around $200k.

Holy #$#@!

He's my age. Looking at glassdoor, I would say that's accurate. Apparently the culture there is very competitive and intense, and there are no merit raises and bonuses.

Where is Netflix located? That makes a huge difference to recruitment.

Tell him to save his shekels for when that job is off-shored to India or Serbia or South Korea.

Sour grapes man. All jobs have some risk involved whether it be getting offshored or becoming obsolete. Actuaries are no exception.
