    I worked at Huawei Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Decent health benefit. Location in Plano is great. Office cube is big. If you are experienced folks coming from the industry ( cisco, ATT, ..) they will pay you big bucks try to get every piece info out of you.

    Cons

    Micro-management, expected you to join off hours call while not allowing you to be flexible during business hours. Appraisal is based on relationships with upper mgmt. which are all expat from HQ.
