    Former Employee - Wireless Engineer in Silver Spring, MD

    I worked at Huawei Technologies (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It was a great place to work and every day you learn something new. Awesome environment and teamwork. They help you with Huawei certifications.

    Cons

    It was very difficult to book a flight or an hotel with HR when traveling, some times you had to pay them with your own money and it was difficult to get reimbursed. A lot of late night work.

    Advice to Management

    Do not treat your employees as resources, so don't change them of departments or responsibilities without their previous consent and agreement. Make more efficient use of time.

    I have been working at Huawei Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Compensation is not bad comparing to other similar companies. It has a relatively good work life balance. The company also offers stock dividends, which is not typical for other similar IT companies.

    Cons

    The corporate culture is pretty much Chinese style. The US site does not have its own budget, so everything is led by the HQ side, which means the US teams have less control over the projects. One of the annoying thing is that the IT infrastructure is really not good.

    I have been working at Huawei Technologies (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    International experience; good bonus if business is good

    Cons

    Being expected to be on-call 24/7, not matter your position; and sometimes it is not even business related. When your boss needs you, you have to be ready.

    Advice to Management

    Cursing and yelling makes nobody happy.

    I have been working at Huawei Technologies (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Competitive pay and benefits. Company has a lot of great products.

    Cons

    Travel budgets are a joke. I lose money every time I travel. Daily per diem and guidelines rarely cover actual costs. Very cut throat environment. Employees are on edge. Layoffs come out of nowhere and with no basis. Very strict working hours. No work hours flexibility.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees some freedom to do their job.

    I worked at Huawei Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Engineering company, great to learn technologies

    Cons

    All control in the hands of Chinese (expats or in China), no career path (unless using ultimatum and threat to resign to get a promotion). Top down, army type management (not leadership)

    Advice to Management

    Stay away. Hard to move on after with Huawei on a resume in the US. Limited business in US => lots of traveling in marketing or you're considered non productive.
