    Pros

    They have very comfortable environment and very nice people. They are always pursuing something more professional and creative not only .

    Cons

    Perhaps should have more connect with analysis technology and methods of other country. And use some more professional data analysis methods.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management I have is really great.

    I worked at Tencent as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Manager was disorganized, company headquarters seemed lackluster. Lots of room but very few people. However, Tencent is an internationally -esteemed company and puts out for a lot of widely-circulated services.

    Cons

    could use some more professional data analysis methods

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Tencent full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Managers are easy-going, no micro-management.
    Sometimes work overtime, but not that often comparing with other Chinese Internet companies.

    Cons

    Must motive yourself to learn the new technology.
    Reorganization happens every year.
    Product driven company, not engineering driven.

    I worked at Tencent full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Very positive work environment with a great team, a lot of passion for good games. Blooming company for business development professionals. Great benefits, nice salary, very supportive upper management.

    Cons

    At this point, Tencent America is not a production company. It doesn't produce games. It is not an disadvantage for the company really, since it is their strategy and it's good for the company's overall growth both in the US and in China. But it's probably not a good choice if you're looking for a production orientated jobs.

    Also, the company works with China headquarters as well as partners all over Europe, the working hour might get a bit crazy. I don't mind it, but if you have family, kids to take care of, might want to take that into consideration.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You guys are just super great! I had nicest bosses in Tencent, understanding, no micro-management, always available to provide support. Just overall awesome.
