    Pros

    They offer you a really good offer, and the location is good, which is in Santa Monica in Los Angeles.

    Cons

    It is a small company with a poor strategy. It probably will be bought by a big company like Amazon or Google soon.

    Advice to Management

    Be friends with your coworkers, and think about improving the business strategy of the company.

    I have been working at Hulu full-time

    Pros

    Exciting developments for company. Smart, driven, hard-working people that are fun to work with. The organization is flat and you get significant responsibility. Open communication with upper management and a focus on preserving culture in a rapidly growing company.

    Cons

    A lot of redundancies and lack of process. The company's growth will require more process implementation.

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

    Pros

    Wonderful team atmosphere - focus on fun and enjoying the job - lot's of extra perks and benefits that will keep you there for awhile.

    Cons

    Not to much that I can say that is bad about working at Hulu. There weren't too many times that I found myself unhappy or expecting more than Hulu had provided.

    Advice to Management

    Keep things going - keep things exciting and make sure that you're always accepting new ideas and implementing them when they work!

    Pros

    Great place to work. Good benefits and culture.

    Creative freedom is stiffed by current boss. (This can happen anywhere but has made my personal experience less positive.)

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

    Pros

    Innovative products, exciting new content, nice corporate perks

    Cons

    Finance department has serious turnover, and think twice about taking a role here. Work/life balance is nonexistent, and turnover is extremely high. Extremely poor leadership in the finance team.

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

    Pros

    - Hardworking, fun-loving, honest colleagues - Great office - Parties, snacks and game rooms

    Cons

    - Struggling to retain good talent - Pay is competitive for some teams but far off for others

    Advice to Management

    Truly evaluate market value for each and every position, and value all teams financially (not just tech)

    Pros

    Enjoyable people to work with. Benefits are good. Very collaborative environment.

    Cons

    Upper management all over the place when it comes to conceiving ideas in improving the product. It leads to disorganization and messy processes as well as unnecessary fire-drills. Lack of communication is constant across departments with upper management not listening or seeing the lack of effectiveness of their actions or ideas. Morale can be very low at times.

    Advice to Management

    Needs improvement in hiring the right people to lead. Emphasize more on work/life balance and what else can be done to make employees happy.

    Pros

    I LOVE HULU. This company is far and away the best that I have ever worked for. The environment is amazing; you get stuff done and have fun at the same time. The pay and the benefits are super competitive (I don't know how it is for non-tech positions though). The people are great and the management is doing a great job with trying to define processes. I came here about 9 months ago, and it has been one of the best decisions I've made.

    Cons

    Product wants to do a lot of things, which by itself wouldn't be a bad thing, but they do it in such a way that it totally disrupts the team's cadence and decreases our efficiency. I think that's the biggest pain-point right now.

    Advice to Management

    Everyone has worked really hard into making THW a thing that actually works, don't let products ADD jeopardize that.
