I'm curious to hear from people that work at Hulu. What are your current thoughts on working there?

Does Disney buying Fox have any impact on you guys?

Curious to hear any recent juicy rumors that are going on over at Hulu.

  • I don't recommend it if you're in tech. Most people saying good things haven't worked here long. The business is good, but it's a media company, not tech. Innovation is lacking, and leadership is poor. Most teams are working to replace in house software with vendor solutions and management has made it clear they don't mind firing and layoff.

    You can make more at Google Venice and work far less

      Thanks for the feedback!

      What do you mean that the business is good? Do you mean that Hulu is doing well from a business perspective?

      I agree with this, although not sure you will work less. Hulu isn’t a tech company and engineering quality isn’t valued here. Also it’s very fire driven but generally good wlb

    Curious as well. Seems like no one, even the employees themselves, ever speaks about anything.

      I think Hulu is rather small with respect to headcount. I would guess under a thousand people work at Hulu.

    I’d say that if someone was going to win control, we’re glad it was Disney instead of Comcast. Who knows what changes it will bring, but all indications seem to point towards Hulu being a point of focus, investment, and growth for Disney.

    And we’ve done plenty well working alongside Netflix for years. (We actually have more content.) And yes, I’d say most people are very happy working here. Definitely way better WLB than Netflix - or Amazon.

      poor guy I am not saying you already left amazon. I am just saying you plan to move out and that is why u ask Hulu. Haha tricky man. But you r still too young. We know what you are thinking. You point is whether you should Hulu not compare it with other streaming company. At least you are living a bad life in Amazon now haha

      Life is good at Amazon. Just exploring what is out there. Also in my late 30s :-)

      Finally, according to Glassdoor reviews Hulu has a better rating than Amazon so was trying to get feedback from Hulu employees directly.

    Sales isn’t finalized. So no impact yet. Working here is pretty sweet

      How long have you worked there? How does it compare to some other places you have been?

    I dont agree necessarily that engineering quality isnt valued across the board. But it is a little team-dependent, hopefully the new tech leadership can do something about it. Some team have better practices than others. Since hulu has decided to take on live tv besides vod, it has opened a new can of worms, and there is still a huge amount of engineering problems to solve

    How is Hulu still in the market with Netflix dominating the way it is?

      Netflix dominance is not assured that's for sure.
