    Pros

    Not many pros to talk about unfortunately; Generally pay seems to be pretty competitive but that's about all that comes to mind. The R&D team is pretty stable but all other positions are in the direct and constant path of layoffs.

    Cons

    Very difficult culture being that it's virtually all Chinese management; Nobody in a senior position is from the U.S.; No understanding of how to operate in a mature market like the U.S., treat every market the same; VERY high turnover (layoffs) for U.S. employees which tend to be backfilled by less expensive Chinese employees; Very little trust from management towards U.S. employees

    Pros

    The company works and develops top notch telecommunication solutions which you could learn a lot from. Financially speaking the company as a whole is on stable grounds, but individual office performance can vary and company bonuses as well accordingly.

    Cons

    It's a deeply Chinese company in its culture. Because of this there are no real advancement opportunities for local employees because it is Chinese employees sitting in mid to higher level positions. There is also a division in the local offices between Chinese and local employees. There are many processes that are not coherently tied together. In short it is lacking the organizational culture of western companies.

    Advice to Management

    Give more power to local employees, allow them to advance to higher level positions and reward performance more verbally versus putting people down for mistakes.
