    Pros

    Many nice people, they try to make employees happy with events and nice cafeteria. Some latitude to contribute and work independently.

    Cons

    Lots of managers who got there by playing games rather than on merit. Fat management. Product roadmaps were silo'd and people didn't work together or help each other. Very disorganized.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of half your managers. Clean up your neglected products like Mail. It's degraded.

  2. Cool place to stay as a start

    Pros

    great and flexible culture, great people!

    Cons

    inconsistent changes of company's direction from upper management (whole company, not specific to HK)

    Advice to Management

    people are the greatest assets to the company, you need to drive employees devoting a lot before satisfying the advertisers
