    Pros

    Hulu is what a company should be about. You're surrounded by smart, motivated people who are all working together towards the same end goal: building an unparalleled viewer experience with amazing content. That, coupled with a great culture, growth opportunities and autonomy, and you can see why it's a desired company to work for.

    Cons

    Some departments still need to be better about communicating, but these are challenges most companies are faced with.

    I have been working at Hulu full-time

    Pros

    It appears everybody in multiple departments have the opportunity to get their hands dirty on many different projects. There are always last minute emergencies that sound bad, but help you gain much experience in little time working here. Lastly, the company has monthly "wind downs" where news about the company and upcoming things are shared so the employees are in the loop.

    Cons

    Things can be sporadic and it's next to impossible to find out who is the right person to go to when you have a question. Also as the title suggest, the pay is relatively low compared to any other similar industry. The worst part is the company knows about this through company surveys, but refuses to seriously acknowledge it. The response management gives is "we're in line with other companies in the industry", which every single person that leaves the company for a similar role at another company confirms is completely false. However, the benefits other than base pay are good.

    Advice to Management

    I know that content probably costs alot but at least get real when telling people why they're getting underpaid. Don't bold-face lie to them about having the same pay as other companies. It's insulting and it's the always in the top 2 reasons why people leave

    I worked at Hulu full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Pay is competitive for people in Creative and Content realms; less competitive in the Tech and Product side
    -Good 401K match
    -Plenty of nice, intelligent, fun people working there
    -Hulu is very support of learning new skills on the job
    -Not very forward thinking with investment in tech

    Cons

    -No trust between departments and teams within departments. VPs and up are known to try to undermine colleagues
    -Lack of clear direction: Hulu is still a hedge by its owners (ABC/Disney, NBC, Fox, Time Warner) against threats that they don't fully understand. New services can be launched without justification beyond Board desire
    -Senior leadership is afraid of making big decisions that might bother the new CEO
    -CEO wants Hulu to be much more corporate. Great if that's what you're looking for, but don't go in expecting a visionary leader who cares about the employees

    Advice to Management

    Make decisions and stick to them, then communicate those decisions outwardly. Hulu either lacks a clear plan for its employees or doesn't know how to communicate that plan, both of which are problematic.

    Embrace change. It's clear Hulu is becoming more corporate and the traditional "Hulugan" culture means less now -- and that's okay. Accepting that is fine. Paying lip service to old values and spending excessive time on events meant to artificially boost morale (without actually helping employees) is less okay.
