Besides Netflix, what media companies pay well? Heard HBO pays competitively as well? Any other options?

      Do they frown upon telecommuting or WFH like Disney does?

  • Hulu tech org pays very well. Top of market, minus the stock options but they have long term incentive cash. Non-tech pays OK but not as well as tech.

      Agreed, their offer was comparable to my Google offer. Beat Google by a fair margin on raw cash.

      What is the TC and break down for your offer? Interested in knowing what other options are there and the TC.

      Quibi has hired a lot of people from Netflix, Hulu and Snap. Do you know anyone from those companies that work there now? If so, I suggest reaching out to them.

      Are you in product, eng or content? Their tech recruiter is pretty responsive

    If you want to include SiriusXM in the media umbrella, I can tell you they absolutely do not.

      How does Sirius XM stay afloat? I just cancelled my subscription cause there was no way in hell I was gonna pay $200+ annually for radio I don’t listen to often.

      Lots of promotional pricing. You call back now and you'll be able to get $4.99 a month for 12 months. People surf from discount to discount.

    HBO TC is about in line with Amazon. More than Microsoft, not competitive with Google or Netflix.

    I’ve heard horror stories about how little Disney pays.

    No idea what Hulu pays. Probably competitive with HBO.

    Hulu and Netflix are far above everything else. Expect a 25% pay cut minimum at other media companies.

    HBO pays like a regular tech company. I don’t think there is RSU. Depends on department. Some pays better. But nothing like high compare to FAANG.
