Current Employee - Senior Kernel Engineer in Santa Clara, CA
Current Employee - Senior Kernel Engineer in Santa Clara, CA

I have been working at Huawei Technologies full-time (less than an year)

Pros

1. Many projects are ambitious and attractive
2. Not product-oriented, so get chance to work on something really interesting
3. Diversified projects
4. Good pay

Cons

1. Seems the HQ doesn't really treat the US employees as its own employees, but just consultants. To some extent, there is a competition relationship between the US team and China team.
2. The funding is strictly controlled by the China BUs, so due to above mentioned relationship, they can withdraw the funding anytime without early notification, no matter whether or not the schedule/plan has been made. They don't care!
3. As a result, the US employees only have a few options: a. do whatever China BU wants them to do; b. find some other funding without the company; c. leave the company
4. Probably due to the poor reputations of the company's organization, the company has lots of difficulty to hire qualified/competent engineers to do the work, so to fulfill the head count, the hiring manager has to lower the criteria when hiring new employees. This kind of people cause big trouble when doing projects.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Loose the constraints on US research teams.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Plano, TX

    I have been working at Huawei Technologies full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with and Devices

    Cons

    Cultural gaps and gaffes still exist. Language remains a barrier.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Localize, localize, localize.
    Empower local experts to interact with customer, set & execute strategy for this market.
    Still remains very "China" or as many refer to "HQ" centric, while not adapting better to the local market, requirements, standards and expectations.

    Former Employee - User Trial in Plano, TX
    Former Employee - User Trial in Plano, TX

    I worked at Huawei Technologies as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good for those just starting out of college. You can hold a lot of ownership to something because the company has a lot of gaps.

    Cons

    Constant re-organization, stupid managerial decision making from overseas, fear instilled on employees, dry environment, cheap company who won't even spare employees on decent coffee. Not a fun environment with low employee moral.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start looking at the big picture and focus more on what the American consumer wants.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
