    Pros

    good company, nice people, if you're professional, skilled ( maybe entry to mid level ), it'll be a relaxed working place. you can learn basics about websites, social media, web marketing and chinese culture. it's a well known Chinese company, can build up your resume quickly

    Cons

    people think it's just a small oversea office for the headquarter in China, and being quite conservative. sometimes they don't care about you doing this job good or not, can be disappointing

    Advice to Management

    have meetings at least once a month? people always don't know what's going on in this company

    Pros

    No much over work. Most of the time one can get his job done in his own way. A boss may care about the deadline, but not the detail.

    Cons

    Low salary. People management in this company is not very healthy. Heavy office politics. But most of the time it does not have any impact on an engineer.
