    Horrendous

    I worked at Huawei Technologies full-time for less than a year

    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.

    I worked at Huawei Technologies as an intern

    Pros

    Well, Huawei is really a 'big' company in China. The work environment is really great!

    Cons

    Actually, I do not have much to say in this part. Maybe people there is too hard working.

    I have been working at Huawei Technologies full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    People 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.

    Cons

    Really 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 ManagementAdvice

    There is some government issue that limited the company delelopment. We have to solve the issue asap.

    I worked at Huawei Technologies full-time

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    Training 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.
