    Pros

    Office atmosphere is great with lots of facilities provided. Canteen services are provided for the employees.

    Cons

    Only full timers enjoy the benefits of belonging and contract work experience is not good enough always.

    Pros

    People are nice and the benefit was fair. A lot of opportunity to grow in career in the US office, not sure about Beijing.

    Cons

    Management lacks long term vision and steadfast support, quarterly KPIs are often changed several times during the quarter and communication with HQ in Beijing was difficult

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think BIG and take more risk. Your stock price is already dirt low, time to disrupt the market by investing on talent and product with bold acquisition and innovation.

    I worked at Renren

    Pros

    If you're smart and competent, you will be rapidly rewarded with new responsibilities, and advancement.

    It's one of the few Chinese tech companies you can work for that will get name recognition outside of China.

    It's easy to move between jobs/departments in-house. You'll have pretty good opportunities to pursue what you want.

    You will get a lot of pressure, but their is a lot of room to push back and manage expectations. With persistence, you can work a pretty reasonable schedule considering this is a tech company.

    Cons

    Very little training.

    Lots of territorial thinking, and push and pull between departments.

    Almost no long-term strategic thinking. The company is dominated by a "quick cash" mentality.

    No investment in tools and technology. You'll have to make do with band-aids, chewing gum and super glue.

    Renren tries hard to be an open, creative work environment, but in many areas, it slides back into a very authoritarian management model. It's not a bad employer as Chinese companies go, but far less flexible than a well-managed western company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. To go global, adopt global standards. 2. The 80/20 rule can be applied to many things, but not to product quality. Instead, go for 100% quality on the 80% of features that customers really want.
