    I have been working at Hulu full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Great Coworkers. Quite a few people have been leaving in 2019 but overall still enjoy the people I work with. - Opportunities to work on projects that millions will see. There's few enough developers, with many teams having not grown in headcount in a few years, that you'll have opportunities to work on highly visible features.

    Cons

    - Rough on-call schedule. With Live TV, expect issues during the evenings/ weekend. Generally you will be on-call for an entire week a month. - Little career growth. Most promotions seem to be junior developers to developers, there are far less moving from mid-level to senior developer compared to other large/similar sized companies in the tech industry. Don't expect raises above inflation. - Highly political. The... ratio of management to developers is pretty high , expect a lot of resistance to any work that is driven by technical staff to give more time for management/product driven projects to be implemented.

    Advice to Management

    Morale has been falling for development teams. Its hard not to notice other groups get offsite team building events whereas development teams just get pizza in the office. Try to make sure individual contributors such as developers or QA feel valued as well, especially with the future not looking as bright for us after the Disney takeover.

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

    Pros

    There is a lot of talent but its disappearing Everybody is overpaid (I was too) Great snacks and kitchen Fun culture Beer, and snacks No hiring competition More beer and snacks and wine and snacks and peanuts and snacks

    Cons

    Nobody does anything - great place to retire. My manager worked 2 days a week and complained of workload. He/She was shameless. Weak leadership, lots of cliches in presentations Not a tech and product driven company but feels like a more top down company - this is why Amazon will soon kill them. The increasing subs (25M+) is a smokescreen - they keep reducing prices while netflix increases it - but the product... has not changed one bit The CTO (came from tivo which doesn't exist anymore and gets paid a boatload) has brought no identity and speaks in very vague terms - he is technically not deep at all - Young, dynamic, Inspirational, energetic is the exact opposite of who he is. Handmaids tale is one partially hit show - rest is just partnering and buying content with daddy's money.

    Advice to Management

    Become a tech driven and product driven company. Take a shorter hit for longer success. Trim the fat. You are also a big part of that. Amazon/Apple is about to eat your lunch.

    -Opportunity to work on a variety of projects

    Cons

    - Long hours. Many people on team won’t get home to see their family. - New management has added to the workload / disorganization - Most Talent is leaving - Seems like most of the team took paycuts to work here -very little upward growth -lack of diversity in management positions -be prepared to do several jobs in one

    Advice to Management

    Figure out the team structure as its hurting the employees on the ground level daily.

    I have been working at Hulu full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Hulu has a lot of good going for it. Internally, employees are highly collaborative and willing to engage. Working with senior leaders has overall been a breeze, not something I've experienced at other jobs. From top level to individual contributor, most Hulugans want to see their peers succeed. Externally, I see a lot of opportunity on the horizon with Hulu and the business changes it has gone through recently.

    Cons

    There has been a lot of change, and change management could use a little tightening up. But when you're moving at the speed of innovation, this can happen.

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

    Pros

    Company-wide activities and sponsored events, startup-like environment and energy in certain areas of the office, plenty of project opportunities to collaborate outside of your group.

    Cons

    Growing pains, unclear direction at times given Hulu's ownership structure.
