    I worked at Hulu full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fantastic colleagues where most everyone is very intelligent and go-getting Solid pay of LTIP and discretionary bonus (no longer applicable due to Disney) Perks (pre-Disney): Huluween, Holiday parties, Hulupalooza, clubs for any interest, Hudos Great snacks (ex: free avocados!!!, breakfast bagels/donuts every other Friday, catered company all-hands, etc.)

    Catty/clique-y work environment Passive aggressive upper management Politically motivated promotions rather than merit based Hiring freeze Disney's acquisition of Hulu Diversity + Inclusion change and drive is more superficial (thus far) Overall, it is clear Disney's hold on Hulu is slow, steady, but impending.
