The annual salary of an engineer working in the OTT platform Netflix was more than Rs 3.4 crore ($450,000). Despite this, he left the job. Actually, the professional life of the engineer was not going well. Things were not happening there as per his wish. After which he decided to leave the job. Now he has started his own business and he is quite satisfied with it.
According to a report in ‘Business Insider’, the name of the person is Michael Lynn. Lin started his job in 2017 as a senior software engineer with a promotion at Netflix, before that he was working at Amazon. Lynn said, when the job started, I thought I would always be with Netflix. While the annual package was great, food was also available for free. There was also the facility of Unlimited Paid Time Off. Overall, he used to get 29 lakh rupees as salary in a month.
Job left in May 2021
After four years, many people were surprised when Lin left her job in May 2021. People thought he was crazy. Even Lin’s parents objected to this. Lynn’s mentor also objected to her move. Lynn’s mentor had said that despite having such a good salary, she should not have left the job until she found another job. He kept thinking about this for three days, but then he talked to his manager about leaving the job. Lin told that 8 months have passed since then. They feel that the decision to leave the job is the right one.
Why did you decide to leave the job?
Lin told that he wanted to shift towards product management. He applied for Product Manager even while in Netflix, but without success. He told that there was no such process in the company that he could change his role. Lin also noted that none of the engineers had been able to shift to product management.
There is no progress in career, so the decision was taken…
Lin told that becoming a product manager had become a strange thing. When he started a job in Netflix, he made a lot of money, learned many new things. But, he did not see any progress in his career. His team’s goal did not match Lynn’s career. The focus of the team was on engineering migration.
After this, Lin felt that he was making the exact same mistake that he had made in Amazon. Lynn’s performance also deteriorated. He used to take less part in meetings. His manager also started noticing all this. His manager said in April 2021, ‘If he wants to stay in the team, then he will have to focus on engineering migration and talk more with the team.’ After about two weeks of the performance review, he spoke to the manager. Then he talked to HR, after which his job ended and he was given a separate package.
Life after Netflix
Lynn said that she thought her life would end after she left Netflix. He will not have any social life. But he started his own business. Lin says he feels more satisfied with himself.
