    I worked at Huawei Technologies full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The US R&D office seem to have many challenging work opportunities. They do good market survey and offer relatively competitive compensation. They general hire good people to work there (although many don't stay for long).

    Cons

    The company has a weird management setup where there were a group of US managers and a group of Chinese correspondents. It is difficult to see who is making the decision and taking responsibilities. The management lacks transparency, often doesn't/can't keep promises, and is full of corporate politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wish the US management could be more transparent in their decision making and handle projects differently than the Chinese headquarter does. I believe many of them also want to do so but simply don't have the liberty to.

    Pros

    Competing brand. Head to Head competition with Ericsson. Very competitive. Large variety of products. Work Life balance depends on the team in which you are working.

    Cons

    Being part of the acquired company by Huawei. Acquisition was not streamlined till 2 years. I have to leave the organization. However policies are very cheap. Especially traveling policies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To retain employees.... policies should be considered.

    Pros

    Exposure to Chinese culture, decent benefits. Good experience in working for an international company

    Cons

    Many of the leaders are Expat employees with little or no real experience in managing employees in the USA. Since they have been very successful in their ways in China and globally their management style has worked for them they try to use it here in USA and sometime the "Chinese Huawei Way" does not work in the USA.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Localize more management positions and listen more to you local employees. Adopt more local policies rather than trying to make the Huawei China polices and procedures be implemented and followed in the USA.

    I worked at Huawei Technologies full-time

    Pros

    The people in Huawei are very good to work with. They are very respectful of your personal needs. I also got to work with the latest in wireless technology and networking.

    Cons

    Training for me involved going to China and watching everybody work. It did not help with my development. Also, Huawei could not overcome being a Chinese company always under the scrutiny of the US Government. So many potential customers were either afraid or not allowed to make any deals with Huawei.
