    I worked at Huawei Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Local colleagues were great people to work with, everyone worked extremely hard to meet deadlines Total Compensation/Bonus was relatively competitive to other companies I've worked for.

    Cons

    Company business operations are primarily controlled by Huawei China.

    Advice to Management

    Suggest staffing US employees and allowing for more localization. This would inherently shift the work culture accustomed to US.

    Pros

    Great growth opportunities. Strong company with great resources and professional teams. Strong sense of team work, and aggressive business philosophy to reach projects.

    Cons

    Problems for knowledge retention (Knowledge Management sharing). High number of employees are externally hired through third companies, and are not staff, creating sometimes certain environment of mistrust among employees.

    Advice to Management

    Great company, need to improve Knowledge Management strategies, but has a wonderful set of resources and philosophy. Great cooperation among international teams, and different Huawei sites. Need to keep growing and improving due the fierce competition in IT market.

    Hire more US employees to work in the US.
