    Pros

    The department I was in was very open and enthusiastic. Variety of projects and relatively interesting work. Lots of communication with other groups.

    Cons

    Other departments seemed filled with bureaucratic issues, some of which carried over during my stay.
    The company can feel very corporate, and likes to pit projects against each other to increase internal competition.
    The logo looks like a ripoff of the NBC logo.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pitting parts of the company against each other is not necessarily beneficial to growth.

    Current Employee - Sales Management  in  Plano, TX
    Current Employee - Sales Management in Plano, TX

    Pros

    -good benefit package
    -brand is relatively under-developed in the US so good time to gain experience in building it from scratch
    -co-workers overall are hard-working and friendly people

    Cons

    -pay is very low compared to other telecom companies
    -everything is micromanaged from China; US division has little say in what to do with its own business; very bureaucratic
    -no sense of direction on where the company is heading to
    -bad products, poor service
    -you're expected to work around the clock
    -employees are not assets, just robots to get the work done, trust me, you'll feel VERY STRONGLY about this
    -no career advancement nor training; the same people kept on getting promoted while the rest remain at the same position for 3-5 years before they decided to not waste their time here and either quit on themselves or get laid off
    -the company is deteriorating because the US government will not allow it to thrive
    -performance rating is a joke

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company will not go anywhere under the Chinese management. Either employ US talents and learn to thrive in the US market, or just quit the market altogether.

    Horrendous

    Former Employee - Senior Product Manager  in  Santa Clara, CA
    Former Employee - Senior Product Manager in Santa Clara, CA

    Pros

    None. I made some good friends and learnt a lot about how NOT to run a business.

    Cons

    Bad product, no professionalism, very incompetent people from China who don't understand technology or business. All the good ones are in companies like Cisco. There's a reason why people with great skill sets don't join Huawei.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Close shop.
