    Pros

    China Unicom is a SOE (State Owned Enterprise) and it is very big with nearly half a million staff, so jobs are secure and without much challenge or stress. Great work and life balance.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy. Since it is SOE, so it is ridden by bureaucracy and poor management. Slow personal growth, if any.

    Advice to Management

    A lot of management problems are basically incurable.

    Pros

    Can learn a lot of engineering skills. Many opportunities to interact with large enterprise and government clients ans help them deal with their problems. Colleagues are all very nice persons and easy to work with.

    Cons

    The management does not care too much about the engineers and pay much more attention to marketing. As a result, many experienced engineers are eager to leave the engineering departments.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to engineers. Increase the efficiency through simplifying the office procedure. Improve the client service quality.
