    Former Employee - Technical Manager in Beijing, Beijing (China)

    I worked at Renren full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    As one of the top internet companies in china, Renren has a lot of awesome soft engineers, and has good tech atmosphere.
    you will have chance to get promoted if you did a good job.
    Your leader may also be your good friend which makes the working environment much more comfortable.

    The product team in the company is not that good, someone who are familiar to renren,com may feel it.
    I personally don't think good of the company's main strategy

    Cons

    the atmosphere is comfortable, although over-time working is often.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay more attention to your underling who have enthusiasm to do things.

    I have been working at Renren full-time

    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.

    Pros

    Technical environment is OK.You can learn a lot and improve your technique very well in this company.
    But welfare is not satisfactory because of its bad state of business. You can get very less besides your salary.

    Cons

    To cooperate with the product managers is a challenge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company should give more to the old employees,I think.
