    Be true to the mission and don't let short term GMV targets or other KPI-tied targets compromise the mission.

    Pros

    If you like cheating people out of money, then this is the company for you.

    Cons

    For the most part, suppliers who do business with this company are thieves, con artists, scoundrels, and a waste of human flesh.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Close up shop and turn yourselves in to the local authorities.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Bee in Santa Clara, CA

    I worked at Alibaba.com

    Pros

    Business decisions not influenced by downturn in US economy. Annual bonuses and trips.

    Cons

    Loyalty is seldom acknowledged or rewarded. Unprofessional and duplicitous behavior is common throughout all levels of management (particularly lower levels). Recognition for achievement is often misappropriated, or misdirected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Effective supervisory skills, recognize and acknowledge loyalty, remove personal bias from decisions regarding promotions, compensation, and assignment. Management should not be involved in unfounded gossip or blatant favoritism.

    I have been working at Alibaba.com

    Pros

    You get to learn a lot

    Cons

    Not much appreciation for your work
    Stiff process and systems making life a lot harder and processes very lengthy
    You can feel a bit secluded and deprived from information, incentives, participation if you work abroad

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't drop people when you "no longer need their blood". People like to be recognized and that's why they work hard. So many talents have left the company under the same issue but it seems like nobody looks at it with "fixing eyes". HR is really useless and won't give you the support you need.
