    I worked at SINA full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    good company, nice people, if you're professional, skilled ( maybe entry to mid level ),
    it'll be a relaxed working place.
    you can learn basics about websites, social media, web marketing and chinese culture.
    it's a well known Chinese company, can build up your resume quickly

    Cons

    people think it's just a small oversea office for the headquarter in China,
    and being quite conservative.
    sometimes they don't care about you doing this job good or not,
    can be disappointing

    Advice to Management

    have meetings at least once a month?
    people always don't know what's going on in this company

    Pros

    People are nice at the information system team. Their Beijing head-quater is at a good place and office environment is great. You can see some famous stars in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Be move innovative and catch up to the trend. Sina need a more creative and collaborating company culture.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at SINA full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    No much over work. Most of the time one can get his job done in his own way. A boss may care about the deadline, but not the detail.

    Cons

    Low salary. People management in this company is not very healthy. Heavy office politics. But most of the time it does not have any impact on an engineer.

    Pros

    My colleagues and supervisor are very good person, the work load is acceptable, you can always choose the job you are interested in.

    Cons

    Benefits are not so food comparing to same level companies. There is only water provided by company, nothing else.
