    Pros

    Wonderful place for growth, learning, and development. The culture is laid back but focused, and the employees are all extremely willing to help.

    Cons

    As a short-term intern, I didn't have the chance to learn as many things as I would have liked, and some meetings / tasks were restricted to me (since I wouldn't have the time to fully understand them)

    Advice to Management

    No advice - keep doing what you are doing! I really enjoyed my experience, and I would love to work here as an official employee.

    I have been working at Baidu full-time

    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.

    No mentor ship, bad experience for a new employee, but if you can survive it, then your life here should get better.
