    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

    Emerging product space at the intersection of tech and entertainment, ability to influence the product with your day-to-day work, positive team environment and great office culture, competitive compensation and benefits, excellent work/life balance.

    Cons

    Can take a while for work to ship, communication between HQ and other locations could improve slightly, downtown office needs an upgrade (coming soon!).

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the positive changes!

    Pros

    Hulu has an amazing culture. There are always fun events, people are awesome, really develop new friendships. The benefits are great, 5 months maternity, unlimited vacation, and more.

    Cons

    Limited availability to move up. So much gossip, it's hard to trust people with information. Power struggle where I feel sometimes they don't move you forward to keep their own power.

    Advice to Management

    Don't make us do surveys if you don't take advice into practice

    Great open One Team culture across the company.

    Keep the openness and cross-org communication going strong. And also please get us more parking!

    I have been working at Hulu full-time

    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.
