I worked at Sohu.com (Less than a year)
Too good to be true. The working environment is just awesome. Everybody is like brothers to each other. Every Tuesday and Thursday, there would be ball games. Every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, there would be rock climbing(owned by Sohu). Everybody is so smart, and so fun to spend time with.
There's absolutely no cons. Everything was so great. I've never expect my first internship would be treated like this.
Advice to Management
What sohu really needs is new ideas. They have the technology, and the smart people, but they need better and greater ideas so they can make some thing truly brilliant.
I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Sohu.com.
They came to the college to give students a talk on their recruit plans. After the lecture, we toke the examination on site. The exam is easy, it only concerns basic programming skills. Most of them are c and java problems
Then wait until night for interview call. We met at a coffee shop. Mostly talking about projects from my resume.
