    I worked at Qihoo 360 full-time

    Pros

    -Pay was OK as it was based on 14 months of pay.

    Cons

    -Suffocating work environment.
    -Lack of management oversight and meritocracy - this meant colleagues spending merely a couple or few hours working with the rest of the time spent smoking outside.
    -Incredible amount of politics within the teams and even among upper management, meaning work was stifled.
    -Lack of clear vision for the product, and decisions often made on a whim without much thought.
    -No opportunities for upward mobility.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the work culture. Employees aren't just tools that you should just use and throw away.
