    I worked at Huami full-time

    Pros

    The company is getting more recognized.

    Cons

    Working on projects for launch on china market (otherwise you are laid off...). Focus on stealing Intellectual Property of other companies. No focus on employee personal well being. You need to be Yes-Monkey to survive here. If you cannot speak mandarin and read Chinese words, no room for career growth / advancement. Unrealistic dead lines, no work-life balance. They will extract all you know about your former... employer and then dump you.

    I have been working at Huami full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Come late leave early collect a paycheck

    Cons

    Employees don't have voice. No transparent communication from top down. Exec yack all time about how they working to improve this, no changed. Layers of completely inept middle management given way much power. No one to do resource planning to figure out if have staff to build what execs want. Dev teams who will be tasked with the work have no voice in process and only find out at the end. Managers promoted... with no management experience. no employee development, low morale in engineering and company as a whole. Unfair employee layoff lately affected entire company. Teams left with inefficient employees. No perks. I've seen people frustrated across teams with senior managers demanding instead of leading. Cheap tactics, HR is joke with no willing to hear what employee going through.

    Advice to Management

    Cut office politics, be honest. Value employees and growth. Major lack of diversity, hire talent no friends only.

    I worked at Huami full-time

    Pros

    New devices will be appointed and will be encouraged to use them. Some of the smartest people I have worked here, there is talent in this company.

    Cons

    People are not the most valuable asset here. Huami is political place. There is no real leadership and it costs them a lot of money (no vision, no participation). Serious lack of communication between groups and cooperation. There is a lot of work for such aggressive schedules, with little consideration for the impact of these restrictions on quality and people. Many sectors develop using languages and operating... systems that are not considered sophisticated (C / C ++ and home operating system). Technical and practical improvements be difficult or slow. Less flexible than most companies when it comes to working hours, work from home.. There is no balance between working/ life at all. started micro managing your every movement.

    Advice to Management

    Develop concrete plans for the future, and tell employees what plans are. Not just things like "expansion." Consider the different work schedules / work options from the home. The hierarchy is very flat, it is difficult to advance your career. Stop favoring target dates over delivering high quality. Stop letting people who are afraid of their jobs being taken by others run the company.

    I worked at Huami full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    There's a mini-gym in the Beijing office and a pool table in the Hefei office. Quite nice if you get to visit. Lots of chances to get free fitness bands, scales etc if you sign up for the alpha test runs.

    Cons

    The corporate hierarchy is suffocating. The CEO is a dictator who listens to nobody and makes impressively stupid market/management decisions. The high/mid level management responds by sucking up to him and pressuring their underlings. It's very hard to convince people above you of anything if you have differing opinions. They pay below the market rate and barely give raises. They really only have themselves to... blame for the poor performance of the company. Their profits dropped in the recent quarters and they're trying very hard to find excuses to pay people less in order to cut costs.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees. Pay them. Listen to them. Don't force them to work overtime without compensation. It's amusing how a health tech company can be so ignorant of their employee's well-being.

    Pros

    good engineers, products, china culture people to talk to in chinese

    Cons

    no working from home and management checking time work hours no concern for general employee wellness (also no visa, no administrative help) = good, critical employees looking to leave . no bonus no perks competition between teams because lack of projects also no objectives no global company objective . lack of communication from Us management and china

    Advice to Management

    define clear objectives for teams. let people decide dont block people proposing ideas, they better than managers. promote good people to decision positions, managers communicate more on company objectives, ask for feedbacks on your management abilities

    Pros

    Like previous comments, collect paychecks and gain time to look for a better position.

    Cons

    Suffers from blindfoldedness and discrimination.

    Advice to Management

    Bad management is ruining the company. When you see high turnover in the USA office you might want to get rid of managers in most teams. Don't silence people or they turn to Glassdoor.
