    Pros

    Great product with top-rack features, global presence and funded well; nice sales teams who are well connected with the industry.

    Cons

    Rigid Asian style management, making it challenging to be a real global provider; Totally should respect the local regulation and culture more

    I have been working at Hikvision full-time

    Pros

    Good benefit overall. Also had the opportunities to work with and learn from some superstars in the industry (although most of them had left.)

    Cons

    Work environment used to be fun, energetic, and rewarding a few years back. Things started to go downhill due to the security concern about Chinese technology being sold in the US. This was an external threat in which we had no control over. But to make things worse, the company's China HQ wanted to control everything about the North America team from sales to operations to HR... They decided to transfer/relocate people...

    Advice to Management

    You may be tempted to bond with people who came from the same country and speak the same first language as you do. But as a management personnel, please treat your employees fairly. Consider being the bridge between the HQ and the NA team, instead of just being a messenger or an executor. Consider investing in all employees' career development and internal mobility (not just for the ones who can speak Chinese.) Take care...

    I worked at Hikvision full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Had some very nice coworkers.

    Cons

    You will have no work life balance. If you like to be micromanaged work in the marketing department. No matter what you do it is never good enough. No time off, and when you do have time off expect phone calls, text, and emails.

    Advice to Management

    Make your managers go through leadership training. Managers have no experience dealing with employees.

    "Unhealthy marketing department"

      No opinion of CEO

      I worked at Hikvision full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Politically correct in a very toxic way.

      Cons

      I am writing to anyone considering a position in the marketing department at Hikvision. It is my duty to advise and save anyone who is contemplating employment here. The marketing management needs a complete facelift, and uses political correctness in an abusive manner. The workload demands and expectations are not realistic, management takes the job of 5 people and tailors it into 1 role. The team spirit is superficial,...

      Advice to Management

      Close your doors until you are ready to adapt to North American corporate culture, it is a disgrace to treat people like robots and exploit individuals the way your marketing department has... employees are humans and they merit and should be fostered in a positive and enlightening work environment.

        Pros

        Opportunity to build your job skills far beyond the strengths you have when you walk in the door. Health insurance premium is covered if you do not have any dependents.

        Cons

        Company does not promote from within. Company saddles employees with an ever-increasing amount of responsibilities without compensating accordingly or even recognizing employee achievements. If you do a great job your only reward is more work. Employees are expected to be resourceful and independent because they have little support from management. Anyone who needs a leader will fail. Company treats non-American employees...

        Advice to Management

        Treat all employees with respect. Invest in your employees at all levels. Turnover rate cannot continue to be so high if you desire longevity in the US market.
