    Pros

    Hulu is what a company should be about. You're surrounded by smart, motivated people who are all working together towards the same end goal: building an unparalleled viewer experience with amazing content. That, coupled with a great culture, growth opportunities and autonomy, and you can see why it's a desired company to work for.

    Cons

    Some departments still need to be better about communicating, but these are challenges most companies are faced with.

    Pros

    Organized and getting better and better at setting goals and figuring out how to accomplish them quickly.

    Cons

    Leftover junior designers and UX teams from early days who don't know how to scale.

    Ads team feels really separate from the rest of the teams which is strategically ironic.

    Advice to Management

    Get design leadership to commit to process improvements and put their butts on the line.

    The ads product team is somehow not part of the rest of the product team and way too far removed for us to be successful.

    I worked at Hulu full-time

    Pros

    Stocked kitchen, health benefits, 401k, pto.

    Cons

    Hipster culture, no one over 30. Feels more like a startup with modern decor from the 90's. Annoying social functions, maybe anti socialets don't want to mingle and just want to put in their 8 hours and go home to their family. Company employes mostly whites and nerdy asians. Mostly brads, logans and kristens from the midwest who are here because the big city is so amazing. Or recent grads from ucla who are supper geeky.

    Advice to Management

    How about a little diversity, not just clean cut white guys and blondes, or asians. Also you should hire people over 40, and not age discriminate. Stop with the annoying office social functions it's pretty lame.

    Pros

    Great culture and work environment!
    This is a place that truly cares about its Hulu Subscribers and places that importance on all Hulugans.

    Cons

    San Antonio being a newer office still has room to grow. However, management does stay true to pursuing better ways and is constantly looking for ways to improve matters for all employees.
