    Being in Silicon Valley means to reach out and be innovative. Be innovative. Being a close follower is not enough.

    I worked at Huawei Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Huawei offers a good salary and every year I worked there I received a good bonus. My travel was never restricted and I was able to go to several conferences a year adding to my industry experience and networking.

    Cons

    Working for a Chinese company, at least for Huawei, was often frustrating, There seemed to be a lack of trust from headquarters of the North American employees. Even the most basic decisions had to be run by someone at headquarters before being approved. This was inefficient.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hold meetings in Chinese that alienate the North American employees who are not Chinese speakers.

    I worked at Huawei Technologies full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The US R&D office seem to have many challenging work opportunities. They do good market survey and offer relatively competitive compensation. They general hire good people to work there (although many don't stay for long).

    Cons

    The company has a weird management setup where there were a group of US managers and a group of Chinese correspondents. It is difficult to see who is making the decision and taking responsibilities. The management lacks transparency, often doesn't/can't keep promises, and is full of corporate politics.

    Advice to Management

    I wish the US management could be more transparent in their decision making and handle projects differently than the Chinese headquarter does. I believe many of them also want to do so but simply don't have the liberty to.
