Anyone works at Chinese companies in Silicon Valley? Like Alibaba Tencent Didi etc? How’s the overall culture and pay? What’s the difference compared to other companies in the valley? Do they give out stocks?

    Don’t go unless you are willing to absorb the culture shocks. They work pretty crazy. Not something you would enjoy working your way up. It won’t be easy for non Chinese people due to the expectations from management, especially those from HQ.

      Depends on how you see it. You probably need to travel back to Chinese many times a year, which maybe a good thing for you.

    With recent Trump administration policy, you would be worried about your job I guess. They might have to close the satellite offices in US soon or the employees may have some stigma attached to them and have difficulty at obtaining citizenship or finding a job that could involve government sector (eg Microsoft Azure working with government).
