Tang was publicly criticized for lying in his education and working experience in Jul 2007. He claimed in an interview  that "It is not a problem to cheat a person. But it demonstrates a capability if everybody is cheated by you. It's a symbol of success."
Jun Tang is currently the President and CEO of Gaotime Information Co. Ltd. Prior to Gaotime, he served as the CEO of Xin Hua Du Industrial Group Co since April 2008. Before joining Xin Hua Du Industrial Group Co., Mr. Tang served as the president and director of Shanda Interactive Entrainment Limited, a company listed in NASDAQ. Now he still remains a member of Shanda's board of directors and serves as an advisor to the CEO of Shanda. Prior to joining Shanda in 2004, Tang served as the president of Microsoft China Co., Ltd. from March 2002 to January 2004 and the general manager of Microsoft Asia product support and service and Microsoft Global Technical Engineering Center from January 1998 to March 2002. He received the Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates Award in 1998 and the Microsoft Top Honor Award in 2002 from Microsoft Corporation, and remains the honorary president of Microsoft China Co. Ltd. Prior to joining Microsoft, Tang claimed that he had founded the Intertex Company, a software and entertainment company, in Los Angeles, California in 1993.
Jun Tang has been a Non-executive Director of Tsingtao Brewery Co., Ltd. since November 2009. He has received various honors, including China’s Number One Chief Executive Officer in the Media Sector, China’s Top Ten Most Valuable Professional Manager, China’s Top Ten IT Economic Figure in 2002, and Top Ten Digital Leaders.
In accordance with the Registration Statement of Shanda Interactive Entertainment Ltd in NASDAQ, Tang asserts that he holds a doctorate degree in electrical engineering from Pacific Western University, a master's degree in electronics from Nagoya University and a bachelor's degree in physics from Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications.
In 2010, Tang Jun became the focus of public controversy over his resume. In the first edition of his book My Success is Replicable, Tang claimed to hold a doctoral degree in computer science from California Institute of Technology (Caltech). However, Fang Zhouzi checked Caltech's alumni list and lists of doctoral dissertations, and found no records for Tang. Fang also discovered that some technical inventions which Tang claimed credit were listed in patent databases as having been invented by other people. Fang accused Tang of fabricating his credentials. Tang later admitted that he did not have a degree from Caltech, and asserted that he had never claimed to have received a degree there, but only conducted research there. He also admitted that he had never gotten any doctorate degree from Nagoya University in the live coverage of China Central Television on July 6, 2010. Fang asked Tang to provide information about the kind of research and the names of professors at Caltech Tang had worked with. So far, Tang has not provided any relevant information. It raises the question whether Tang has ever conducted any research at Caltech. Furthermore, Fang has also pointed out that Pacific Western University was named a diploma mill by the United States Government General Accounting Office in a report to the United States Congress. On July 8, 2010, the publisher of Tang's book My Success is Replicable made an official announcement to clarify and apologize for the mistake. According to the publisher, due to communication insufficiency, they failed to find the mistake and correct it in time. On the second edition of the book, they made the correction.
