    very good for the student who begins work

    Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    Beijing, Beijing (China)

    ProsI am in a really good team and we can work together in a simple and efficient way.
    There are lots of expert in all technologies and I can learn from them.

    ConsWe have to finish the project in time and there was not enough time for us to get a better architecture.
    And without good architecture we have to upgrade systems with dirty solutions. So we have to review the architecture doing the project but not at the very beginning.

    Advice to Senior Managementdone well

    Top IT company in China.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsBottom-up company culture. Much of the power is given to engineers, compared to other companies. People are open-minded, smart and friendly. Colleagues are dependable. This company knows the power of simplicity.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep what you are doing now- giving power to front-line engineers.
