    I worked at Baidu as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Engaging work to do and fun projects to build as a summer intern. Generally a good atmosphere, with hardworking and smart people. Company culture in the California base was very friendly, warm, and casual. Felt like a Silicon Valley startup.

    Cons

    Sometimes organizational issues, but that is expected with a (relatively) new California base

    Baidu's Silicon Valley AI Lab Lacks Leadership

    • Culture & Values
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Sunnyvale, CA

    I have been working at Baidu

    Pros

    CEO Robin appears very good. His hard work made Baidu a possibility.

    Cons

    I found the Chief Scientist speaks very gently but very deceptive. I had high hopes for this lab but am very disappointed. I totally agree with what another employee's review where the Chief Scientist worked as a CEO, “Cultural nightmare, leadership disaster, and no moral compass”. It went on saying "too much ego...so many employees leave in disgust, the leadership has begun request they sign a Non-Disparagement Agreement".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am concerned.
