    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 3 years

    Pros

    The people - I had the most amazing team while I was at Hulu... fun, collaborative, inclusive, and diverse. The product - almost everyone knows what Hulu is and it's so much fun to work on tv! The culture on the engineering team - we try to move quickly and realize that sometimes we make mistakes, but we iterate and fix them... there is no fear of failing. I learned SO much at Hulu and was allowed to... experiment, fail (if I fixed it), and grow with my team.

    Cons

    With all the shifting high-level management and ownership of Hulu, the future is a bit ambiguous. I hope the culture and people are allowed to stay as is!!! There has been churn in employees as a result of all this change. Hulu's HQ in Santa Monica is amazing, but when I left it was up in the air if it would move somewhere else in LA... so that's a little risky too (there might be more churn in employees if... people have to commute somewhere else...).

    Pros

    - I really enjoy my team. We can easily joke around and keep the mood light. - People are very smart and capable. - On my team we are given tasks and not hand held. This is a pro to me because at my last place I felt like I was constantly shown how to code or do something. There's a lot more fun in being presented with the problem and having to track down the right people, learn the right APIs, and think about the... most efficient way to solve a problem. I enjoy that aspect mostly because it gives me a sense of trust from everyone else that I am capable to do my job. - Great pay

    Cons

    - Like I said above, I enjoy my team, but this varies from team to team. I'm lucky but I know other teams are not as social. Other teams may have worse managers etc. Just know that if you want to interview you can always move inside the company to a different team after a year or so. - Long hours sometimes - Did not experience this with my team but there have been many long and hard projects that were tossed last... minute after being code completed.
