I have my headphones in listening to music 99% of the time and don’t know if I could handle the job without it. However, Netflix is way way too far. I think the whole “perception is reality” stuff is a load of BS in most cases but this would actually be one of those times where it looks like you truly don’t care about what you’re doing. If you just need some sort of noise or stimulus try music or podcasts or audio books.

Lol man people are brutal. I can see how this would appear to be bad - it’s very difficult for most people to multitask. That being said... I actually do more badass work when I have a movie on in the background. It makes me more productive lol not sure why. I was always that way in college, but at work I just listen to music

I’d say that’s pretty dumb that you were doing it in the first place. Do that shit when you work from home. Perception is unfortunately far far more important than reality

Reading this again, I love how this is worded like some big mean manager blew this out of proportion. You were watching movies at work and thought this was ok! Hahaha

You cannot be as productive when you are watching netflix, the brain is not capable of truly multitasking.

As someone who has had a staff regularly watch Netflix at work - who also thought he was a “great performer” (and who got fired a few months later), I can honestly say this is a terrible idea and you should stop. Watching YouTube videos or music videos is actually okay in my book, because they’re usually short or not mind-consuming. but a full fledged movie or tv show? Regardless of what you think your quality is, this is disrespectful and as a manager, I would almost automatically assume you will miss things and/or you aren’t concentrating as hard as your potential

I don’t think anyone said it makes you a low performer. Maybe the Netflix is also interfering with your reading comprehension??

Perception is not good. Anyone working with you who is waiting for work will be mad. Save yourself now and stop watching movies.

Nah it doesn't make you a low performer, but you're not devoting yourself fully and could be a better performer. Or at least that's what it looks like, and that's what people will think.
