    I have been working at Baidu full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good environment and nice colleagues. Some may say you couldn't have a good work and life balance here. But that's not the case for me. I feel could have a nice work position as well as a relax life.

    Cons

    People may consider Baidu as a company of Tech Driven ones. But I don't think so. All company are Money Driven. It is the reality everyone in a big company should notice.

    I worked at Baidu

    Pros

    Open company, like American company. no many office politics.

    Cons

    OT sometimes. only need to focus on a very narrow field, which is also the cons of most big company.
    company is very mature, not easy to grow very fast for both company and people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good, a majority of managers only focus on the result of work.
    the work environment is very good, 10am - 5pm. very good for the students who begins work.
