    Pros

    In fact Huawei is a super big company and it is still growing fast, you can get a better salary and bonus.

    Cons

    Their headquarters is in Shenzhen, the US team can not make any big decisions, they need to report to the HQ and almost all the big decisions are made by the HQ. The US team have to attend a lot of meetings to communicate with the Shenzhen team. They don't sponsor H1B visa either.

    Advice to Management

    Give more decision-making power to the US team if you want the US team make a greater contribution.

    Pros

    Working in China was a great work environment - dedicated employees, interesting/challenging work. Very fair positive review system.

    Cons

    In China there was no concept of work-life balance as employees live at work. The culture in IT was somewhat cautious and risk-averse.

    Advice to Management

    IT should adopt, embrace, extend Huawei's own cloud technologies to provide a technical showcase to help in expanding the enterprise business.

    Pros

    Salary is ok but nothing special compared to business. There are lots of training material if you can find it and have been given privileges by Chinese management.

    Cons

    Racist company. Chinese people are acting superior to Europeans and it makes the work day terrible. The Chinese leaders are like small kids that behave like they come directly from kindergarten. They have no experience in management or leadership and have difficulties in basic communication with Europeans in English. Almost all Chinese people in Huawei Europe has cultural and language problems. They spit, fart and has problems understanding how toilets work in Europe. They act and behave like they were back On the product side Huawei is untrustworthy and telling lies about features and functions. Huawei is company that will soon have less business in Europe when its customers realizes that they sell features and services that never will be delivered.

    Advice to Management

    Change your culture to international standard or stay in China, where you culturally belong now.

    Good compensation, opportunity of growth for new comers, good place to experience the challenges of business and get credits for what you do. Multi-national culture, and good prospects to work for Fortune 500 company.

    Cons

    The Chinese management follows centralization strategy rather than decentralization. Local managers don't have much power in decision making. Long overtime hours.

    Advice to Management

    Better people management will help to motivate the employees.
