    I have been working at Alibaba.com full-time

    Pros

    Much smaller operation in the US comparing to China headquarter, so communication is easier, less political. Feel like working in a start-up but backed by a large corporate.

    Cons

    - Sometimes it gets very hard to align with the management in China, makes it impossible to get project/budget approval on time.
    - People are generally nice but not very fun.
