    I have been working at Hulu full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    the culture, atmosphere, work and opportunity to change the way people experience tv. we are doing very well and it's a great place to be. we have a lot of opportunities ahead for the business.

    Cons

    we need to define what we look for in leaders, and reward the right behavior.

    Advice to Management

    don't promote people who are just good at their day job and not good leaders. it's very discouraging to the rest of us. keep the egos in check, no room for that here.

    Pros

    They hire the best people
    Annual bonus ranges from 10-15%
    401k match
    Great benefits
    Really fun culture (appears to be on the decline, but still great comparatively)
    Amazing snacks

    Cons

    Getting a bit corporate, as expected. Transparency is touted, but failures seem to be swept under the rug or minimized/rationalized.
    Discontent among Coordinators/Associates seems to be the norm
    Large pay disparities for the same role
