    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    CEO Robin appears very good. His hard work made Baidu a possibility.

    Cons

    I found the Chief Scientist speaks very gently but very deceptive. I had high hopes for this lab but am very disappointed. I totally agree with what another employee's review where the Chief Scientist worked as a CEO, “Cultural nightmare, leadership disaster, and no moral compass”. It went on saying "too much ego...so many employees leave in disgust, the leadership has begun request they sign a Non-Disparagement Agreement".

    Advice to Management

    I am concerned.
