I have been working at Huawei Technologies

Pros* Good, consistent bonuses
* Benefit plans comparable or better than most companies
* Large, stable company, doing very well globally

Cons* All project decisions are made in China, decision making process is unclear, and there is little or no local participation in the process
* Very little employee communication about the company, other projects, long term plans etc.
* Little or no sharing between projects
* Career growth limited if you don't read and write Mandarin
* No stock options, RSUs etc.
* Uncomfortable work environment if you don't speak Mandarin - a lot of business conducted in Mandarin, most hallway conversations in Mandarin and somewhat loud
