    I have been working at Huawei Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers and management. Pay is very competitive and benefit package is among the best I have ever been offered.

    Cons

    The company is run from China by a small group of 4 rotating CEO's, so no western leadership us present in the top tier of decision making.

    Not much room if any for advancement, resulting in limited mobility and an extremely flat trajectory on one's career path.

    Advice to Management

    Inquire about what team members have to contribute as feedback on projects directly effecting them and their team members. Try not to follow outdated methods as their go to solution for every problem, new approach and alternative techniques are greatly welcomed.
