    Pros

    Everything about Hulu is incredible. The culture is the best anywhere I have ever worked - it merges the best of three great industries; Entertainment, Technology and Creative and everyone is genuinely positive and happy.

    Cons

    The office isn’t super inspiring - but they’re not hiding behind fancy looking facilities

    Advice to Management

    Look to middle management more for some inspiring ideas.

      Pros

      Overall Hulu has great benefits, culture and flexible work/life balance. They understand the value of their employees and want to ensure they are given visibility to how they are influencing the business. Hulu is also are aware that the industry is constantly changing, so are open to change - which is a huge win for me, personally. I admire Hulu's focus on having a one-team environment to allow collaboration among employees...

      Cons

      Just like any company, Hulu is not perfect. They're running at an extremely fast pace environment due to the massive scale Hulu is becoming as a business. They're trying their best to keep up the momentum as well as ensure they maintain positive core values/culture to all their employees.

      Advice to Management

      Keep up the good work!

      I worked at Hulu full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Rising brand awareness, snacks, lots of alcohol, at or above market pay + bonus, plenty of smart, creative collaborative people.

      Cons

      Plenty of cons, mostly around a dying culture. Like anywhere, a lot depends on the team and project you're on but good people can languish here. Managerial arrogance. Title chasers. Bros. Lack of inspiration. Corporate hierarchies. A game of thrones over who gets promoted or dies trying. Ignore reviews over 8 months old, because the company is completely under newish management team now. The values that made Hulu...

      Advice to Management

      Read up on case studies of formerly innovative companies that went stale due to poor culture, politics, bureaucracy, lack of teamwork, etc. Also, truly great places to work don't need to take hostages until bonus is paid out at the end of March. Just pay it when it's earned and let the people who are bored move on when they want to. Advice to job seekers: don't come here expecting anything other than a typical corporate...
