    Pros

    Very smart, motivated people. Lots of emphasis on taking initiative and opportunities for leadership. Good place if you don't want to be another cog in the wheel. New office is well designed with common areas, conference rooms, and comfortable cafe (free lunch and dinners). All desks are height adjustable with touchpad.

    Cons

    Occasionally may have long days if you have videocon calls with colleagues in Beijing.
