    Pros

    Greatest work culture I have ever experienced.
    Best Work/Life Balance I've seen
    No management of employee timesheets
    No extraordinary politics to deal with
    You can actually focus on the work
    Great, professional teams to work with
    Best supervisors in the business who care about your professional and personal growth
    Reasonably flexible when you need to WFH or go to appointments
    Great pay and benefits
    Growing company with interesting projects to tackle and learn from

    Cons

    I have no cons that are worth writing about, which is amazing!

    Advice to Management

    There is a really good reason why Hulu is consistently voted as one of the best places on Earth to work. Please please please don't screw it up here. Just leave things be. At least until Mouse Vader shows up after the acquisition, then all bets are off, though I hope they leave things be too.

    I worked at Hulu full-time

    Pros

    Great pay, excellent perks, and unlimited PTO.

    Cons

    Hulu states they embrace diversity. Not so. I worked in a team of 50+. Out of that group, five were people of color. What's even more shocking is that three of them were forced to resign.

    Advice to Management

    Diversity of ideas is key to success. You celebrate it but don't practice inclusion. It's a serious topic in tech but you're in Los Angeles. Your demographics should reflect your city.

    I have been working at Hulu full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible environment, fun events, game rooms and 6 kitchens, but some of the smartest and hardest working people Ive worked with at any company.

    Cons

    Not a huge fan of the Santa Monica commute.

    Pros

    Still a fun atmosphere.
    Some great people (but that's not unique).
    Good autonomy.
    Good pay overall.

    Cons

    Hulu is less special than ever, which is not really so bad, but what will make it stand out from being just another company? It doesn't have that special something that gives it the edge it needs to truly thrive. It's unclear what our end game is or what we want to be great at. Leadership is lacking and truly uninspiring. It's not clear who is holding Hulu accountable and the leadership accountable. These issues trickle from the top and impact the entire organization whether we all realize it or not.

    Advice to Management

    Keep an eye on each other. You are not all on the same playing field.


  7. "Hulu Culture"

    Pros

    Great benefits love the work culture

    Cons

    Becoming less tech startup and more corporate-driven

    Advice to Management

    The culture needs to stay in the vein of the tech startup feel as becoming too corporate will net you a higher turnover rate.

    Pros

    Quick Hiring Dress code and nice break Room

    Cons

    Management has NO IDEA what they are doing, and ONLY care about their stats. They will tell you and make you believe you can ask them questions with any help, however they are never there, and when they are they don't know the answer to your questions, however will get at you when you mess up with that issue that they never helped to begin with.
    Favoritism to the max.
    VXA's never want to help, even though their job is to help you.

    Advice to Management

    Stop making it seem like this is the best place to work because you give your employees donuts and free coffee, however when it comes to the important stuff no one can help.
    I had PERFECT ATTENDANCE, however one time I mess up over not hanging up too soon because I did not want to get in trouble on a automated call that we never got trained for and got different answers as to what we should do from different managers, I get terminated, no write up, no coaching, no verbal, just you're fired.

    Pros

    Working from home is nice.
    You learn to communicate with people from different backgrounds all around the country.
    Decent pay and benefits package.

    Cons

    I applied for another position. First they told me I'm more qualified than anyone they've ever hired for the job, but they do not hire from within. Apparently they mostly hire friends and family.
    Also, I was constantly being blamed for technical issues with their equipment. In one case it cost me a bonus.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication between workers and management.
