Silicon Valley’s most important document ever
Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg just called Netflix's famous company culture presentation "the most important document ever to come out of the Valley."

Netflix has long been famous for giving its employees unlimited vacation time. Netflix CEO Reed Hastings justified this move in a slide deck he first published online in 2009, which also outlines the company’s approach towards hiring (no “brilliant jerks,” please) as well as firing (only keep the people that you’d fight for if they wanted to leave).

Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg praised the deck in a new GQ magazine story about Netflix, saying:

“It may well be the most important document ever to come out of the Valley.”

The GQ article is a good read for everyone interested in Netflix and its CEO, who apparently doesn’t own any flashy furniture, but does keep a bunch of chickens and goats in his backyard. But it also serves as a good reminder to take another look at that Netflix company culture deck:
