    I have been working at Hulu full-time

    Pros

    At Hulu, you can tell they care a great deal about the people that work there. Aside from the free breakfast, happy hours, and other events, they put a lot of time and effort into making Hulu a space where people feel comfortable and safe to do there work in the best way possible. There's a lot of autonomy, especially if you're someone who gets their work done without having to be told to do so.

    Cons

    The avocado runs out really quickly in the mornings.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    Pros

    The culture is great and there are a lot of things the company does to make you feel apart of one cohesive team.

    Cons

    Due to hyper growth I do not know as many people as I did when I started, but it is great to see the expansion and all of the new resources that come with growth.

    I have been working at Hulu full-time

    Pros

    Some great people. Some genuinely want you to do well. Great attendance policy now.

    Cons

    Most people have bad attitude causing a toxic work environment and teamwork is nonexistent. Promotions aren't always earned but given.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look into higher management. A lot of promises are given along with hope when entering training but rarely delivered on. TM role is non-existent on the floor and when you need help it comes off the back of more experienced and tenured people in frontline. Non-existent escalation processes in place cause unnecessary stress on frontline as well. Push back for escalation is not only allowed but promoted.

    I have been working at Hulu full-time

    Pros

    Pays well, great place to get streaming media and entertainment experience, good culture (on paper)

    Cons

    The culture seems great, until you start experiencing the politics. Terrible set of recent management hires that act counter to Hulu's stated values. Avoid the product management team at all costs.

    Advice to Management

    Hire leaders, not micro-managers. The hires you've made over the past year or so have been devastating to morale and forced so many good people out the door. Also, you shouldn't have to work day and night to satisfy their whims, leaders know where to put the effort for maximum impact, trust their team and don't need to have constant status status status emails.

    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.
