    I have been working at Hulu full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    In my personal experience, management really wants to see you succeed. I wouldn't take this to mean that you are up for a promotion every other month, but it seems like direct managers really set their reports up for success and do a great job coaching their teams when opportunities arise.
    The onsite amenities are nice. Kitchens stocked with snacks and beverages, ergonomic workstations/chairs, and neat perks every now and them from out Benefits team. This like onsite massages, yoga, etc.

    Cons

    The onsite offerings are nice, but in comparison to other tech companies, I think we are lacking in food/beverages and benefits (health insurance and cell phone coverage). The standard for all other tech companies (I know from experience and former colleagues) is to provide a catered lunch at no cost or have an in house kitchen. Also, the health insurance isn't the best. They cover a decent portion of it, but at the end of the day, if I select a plan that isn't horrible, I'm still paying a considerable amount out of pocket. Lastly, I CANNOT believe they do not cover mobile devices, especially since close to everyone uses their device to work off of. I think that might be their biggest set back.

    Advice to Management

    Look a bit more into your benefits. There are some very obvious/easy fixes that will make us more competitive in the market and help attract/retain top talent.

    I worked at Hulu full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    1 hour lunch, work from home and pay, benefits after converted. Work in your pajamas, not much more benefits and or pros

    Cons

    Back to back calls, closers can’t leave until calls are done. Mandatory overtime, no time to enjoy your personal life. Poor training and not so helpful Team leads, my team lead would always log off right at 10 and would make us stay until the queue cleared. Company lied and basically kept us around until they announced they would be moving to San Antonio, so we would be left without a job.

    Advice to Management

    Be more honest with your employees

    I worked at Hulu full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Get to sit down in comfortable environment

    Cons

    Team leaders and management never spoke to me once to tell me how I am doing or what to improve on. Had to work an overtime shift on super bowl. 3 days later I get a call from someone out of state telling me my employment has been terminated. So at this moment I do not know why I was fired. No one will respond to my emails. They immediately blocked me from access to my Hulu, my email, and the building itself. They got use out of me for working overtime on the holiday season including thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day and New Years and the super bowl. All of this effort to show the company I was working hard for them was for nothing. No warnings of this happening and I would like to think I was a great worker . Been 2 days and still no reason of why I was fired . Team leaders suck, they could have told me if I was donig something wrong or warn me of something. Worst company now in my eyes for wasting my time

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your employees and tell them what they are doing wrong and at least act like you care about them

    Make sure that we hold internal customer as accountable as we hold the delivery teams, fill participation on both sides is what lead to success.
