    A Chinese company for Chinese

    Solution Marketing Manager (Current Employee)
    Santa Clara, CA

    ProsDiversity of exposures to multiple technologies

    ConsTotal lack of visibility into strategies and motivations for what our goals are. Control is kept in China and the employee is a disposable resource, a soldier, asked to do things.
    Huawei has no trust in its employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCompensation is not competitive and local US incentives have been created by Chinese HR leaders who have no experience of this market. An annual $5k bonus as a retention incentive for example will not do anything.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
