    Horrendous

    Senior Product Manager (Former Employee) Santa Clara, CA

    ProsNone. I made some good friends and learnt a lot about how NOT to run a business.

    ConsBad 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 Senior ManagementClose shop.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good people to work for with, ultimately, disappointing opportunities

    Systems Engineer (Former Employee) Plano, TX

    ProsThe people in Huawei are very good to work with. They are very respectful of your personal needs. I also got to work with the latest in wireless technology and networking.

    ConsTraining for me involved going to China and watching everybody work. It did not help with my development. Also, Huawei could not overcome being a Chinese company always under the scrutiny of the US Government. So many potential customers were either afraid or not allowed to make any deals with Huawei.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Senior Technical Approval Manager (Current Employee) Seattle, WA

    ProsPeople here are very nice, easy going and open talk with each other.
    Company will also provide enough free space for you to contribute your idea.

    ConsReally hard working environment. It is better you know both Chinese and English so that you can freely talk with China HQ to provide your suggestions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere is some government issue that limited the company delelopment. We have to solve the issue asap.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
