technological company

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

I worked at Baidu full-time for more than 3 years

ProsEngineer culture. Encourage engineer to try much new ideas. Salary, bonus, benefit are competitive.

ConsProduct manager don't have much votes. And frankly speaking, engineer culture is getting weaker and weaker. And salary's advantage is gone gradually. To be honest, the company is becoming a much normal(boring) tech company, instead of thriving one.

Advice to Senior ManagementShould try to be more balance between PM and RD. However I know it's very hard to change since engineer culture is sort of like its tradition, already root in its mind.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
