    Pros

    1) Flexible work hours;
    2) Nice gym and natural environment at HQ;
    3) Good medical insurance;

    Cons

    1) Not an environment that makes talents stand out;
    2) Low salary (after working for few years), low bonus - basically not employee friendly;
    3) Move slowly;
    4) Performance is judged by number of bugs fixed not quality of work;

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize people's hard and quality work; think more about performance than useless features; let people leave on good terms; don't panic on stupid bugs; don't play politics too much; efficiency is very important so don't have too many useless meetings; let people present their good ideas not BS ones
