    Pros

    - From a work-group perspective, you meet some interesting people who genuinely are trying to do good work on interesting projects. -Compensation and bonuses were pretty standard for Silicon Valley; benefits are about par as well. - Depending on your management team, there is usually a lot of autonomy to your day-to-day existence.

    Cons

    - Local management are essentially puppets for HQ strategy and vision, with no thought to how it might be perceived or thought of locally. Almost no one dares to challenge HQ mandates. - Very limited long-term strategic vision possible due to short-sided HQ thought-process - Accountability essentially is a dotted line to HQ, meaning this is no real authority locally.Those who are well thought of at HQ can pretty much do whatever they want, however they want with no repercussions.. - Mandarin continues to be the primary language spoken casually, during meetings and conference calls. If you try to point out that English needs to be spoken because, well, you called the meeting after all, to discuss issues affecting your team or your work, it is met with disdain. - Processes are beyond unnecessarily bureaucratic, as they are adopted from HQ with no meaningful localization, and are supported primarily by tools from HQ (primarily in Chinese with poor translation) - An employee truly never has the feeling of being respected. - Overall quality, in pretty much all areas, is sub-standard.. - Lack of a truly diverse environment will continue to impede their innovation abilities for some time. - Local facilities in Santa Clara are outdated and unpleasant to be in.

    Advice to Management

    - Futurewei needs to be thought of and treated as a separate entity (which it is, legally). - Hire a more diverse group of employees, regardless of HQ mandate - Focus on the long-term sustainability of Futurewei in Silicon Valley - Hire appropriate people for positions instead of pushing someone into a job out of loyalty.
