    not that bad

    Support Specialist (Former Employee)
    Shanghai, Shanghai (China)

    ProsI was a developer in a support team, and my major work is developing toy plugin for the customers to fulfill their customized requests. And there are only two developers in my team actually. The best part of working there is you can experience all the process to create a project: design, coding, testing, and deploying.

    ConsWhen you work as an one-man-band, and your leader cannot give you any constructive advises, it's time to leave.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
