    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Some really smart colleagues working there. Exposed to some of the great products of internet.

    Cons

    The company is changed after 2004/2005. It's very political and constantly shifting its goal, management, and product. Not worth to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Chambers must go, the top Indian and middle management must go. They're steering the titanic towards the iceberg.
