    Good benefits only, or if native Chinese who will benefit from corruption
    401k is generous at year end if you can stay that long and tolerate the politics

    Most political work environment outside China, native Chinese imported from PRC speak their own language to exclude the Americans and strictly control everything from top down command structure
