    I have been working at iHerb full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great opportunity in business growth, which in turn makes it necessary to apply the cutting edge technology of cloud computing, big data business intelligence and AI. As an established e-Commence company, iHerb has been expanding very rapidly in global market recently, which opens up a lot of oversea opportunities. It's amazing to see the company become more globalized.

    Cons

    Not fast enough to refactor key business components which is causing lots of pain when running them in parallel.

    Advice to Management

    Get more qualified engineers for the new challenges.

    Pros

    There are no shortages of surprises that keep you on your toes and everyone entertained, as long as one of those surprises isn't you getting fired or demoted (but most likely it was your colleague who was though). There is a beach volleyball court outside where you can watch Verizon employees play for 2 hours a day while you contemplate where your career went wrong. Sometimes the only thing that gets you through... the day is the hope that one day when you get your severance package, you'll finally join them for some volleyball! If you have commitment issues then you don't have to worry, your friends and coworkers won't be around too long for you to get attached. They occasionally hire some young cute co-eds, but you'll have to get in line after the President who will promote them to his "personal" project manager. There is a real-life robot wars arena in office! Just need to find robot engineers who still have all their fingers.

    Cons

    Can't really think of any real cons, except sometimes the cheese in the kitchen runs out too quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! One day there will be a show written about this place!
