Current Employee - Job Title Does Not Mean Anything In This Company in Dallas, TX

I have been working at Huawei Technologies full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

There are so many other companies to work for.

Cons

The products cause more pain to operate which is not balanced by the low cost. It is difficult to stand behind product.

No one from China in the company seems to have any telecom experience yet they will stand up and tell US companies how to operate... very funny to witness.

Life is a power point and somewhere in the company, a deputy general of PPT division exists.

Usually, "Local" employees are not hired by their skills on their resume but rather by the potential connections to companies on their resume (seen as foot in the door).

Company is not a telecom equipment provider. It is a manufacturer. Customers should be very aware of this.

Lying and faking is "normal" in China. Customers should be very cautious when dealing with Chinese companies.

Huawei's expenses are financed by employee's credit cards... then they have to fight the company to get repaid....even after local management approval, some one in HQ China can over-rule. There must be only 5 corporate credit cards in the whole company.

Can "employee ownership" be a ponzi scheme? Could be interesting...times ahead.

Xenophobic

Advice to ManagementAdvice

What management? The "controllers" are in China. The yes-men and yes-women "soldiers" are working on the "front lines" in the USA and have no empowerment nor formation to think or speak...just re-fire the orders from the cronies in China. If they refuse or fail there are thousands more in China chomping at the bit to take their place.

As well, all of the management sent over from China have their own individual agenda (look up "anchor babies"). This coupled with management's lack of experience in telecoms is a recipe for failure. Once the funding to support the madness ends, the company will pull out or be shown the door...or maybe the company is set up for anchor babies? All managers I know from China now have US Citizen children and they will return in 20 years to retire here.

    I have been working at Huawei Technologies full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    To learn, explore new technologies

    Cons

    No freedom to US branch to make decision or do anything else.
    HQ tells you what to do and you do it.
    No proper communication or database from China. They change the project and never tell you, while you are working on it.
    Takes employees as contractors, promising them full-time, but never make them full-time.
    Not a good work environment. Too much politics.
    Sudden change of company hierarchy.
    You will be stuck in chinese culture. People talk in chinese if you are in meetings.
    Very company growth oriented, Doesn't think about employee's welfare.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
