    An open company, easy to access company resources, knowledge, lots of inner training. you will grow fast if you want.

    Relation focused company, you have to maintain good relation with other department if you want support from them. Low efficiency for waiting boss's decision.

    I have been working at ZTE full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    very big company, a "not bad" salary referred to the average in Shanghai. The most important thing is people there focus on working, not trickery. The atmosphere just like still in school, simple and efficient.

    Cons

    Overtime working without... we all know that as a chinese.
    And there are too many rules that has nothing to do with research, which only consuming us engineer a lot of time doing meaningless routine.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    less rules and try to integrate different department together so that there will be less responsibility avoiding things,
