    Software Engineer

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

    ProsBest salary compared with related companies in China. Good training programs. Flexible work hours. Workmates are polite and respect each other.

    ConsSince the company is so big, product iteration run very slow, every idea needs to be reviewed a lot and decisions are hard to made. Unless you are in a core product team, it's hard to be promoted. Workmates are smart enough but lack of passion.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagers need to be more serious with engineers' personal interests, there should be more easily and friendly ways for them to change their positions based on their own wills.
