As per the article written on theladders.com, "Three senior employees at Netflix were fired by the company after criticizing their co-workers over Slack, according to the company’s CEO, after a report claimed that the workers were let go for bad-mouthing their bosses.
The Hollywood Reporter first reported that the streaming giant fired three senior marketing executives for comments aimed at leadership in what the workers thought was a private channel, citing sources.
However, Netflix is singing a different tune. Ted Sarandos, the company’s co-CEO, denied that the office gossip was directed at management, but at other workers at Netflix, which went against company ethics.
“What happened here was unfortunately not simply venting on Slack or a single conversation,” Sarandos said in a LinkedIn comment on July 17. “These were critical, personal comments made over several months about their peers (not their management as suggested by The Hollywood Reporter) – including during meetings when those peers were talking or presenting.
“This is entirely inconsistent with those values, which is why their manager fired them. It’s also worth noting that we don’t proactively monitor Slack or email. The Slack channel was open so anyone could access the conversations even though the employees concerned thought it was private.”
