    Pros

    Good salary and moderate burden, they don't work overtime generally.

    Cons

    Lots of things to learn: hierarchy, Yahoo tools, other tools. Your burden depends on the team culture and the projects that you are doing, you have to estimate how much time you will need to finish the job and keep track of the process.

    Pros

    Good environment to work, good colleagues to work with, good benefit.

    Cons

    Too many performance reviews, and quarterly review without salary change is not good.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open and fair regarding the performance review, do not apply the fixed curve for the result manually.
