Very secretive
Architect (Former Employee) –  Santa Clara, CASeptember 13, 2017
All decisions made in China; If you are in US and cannot speak chinese (all meetings held in chinese) then you are doomed.

You will have no clue what they are talking about;
Pros
compensation
Cons
culture, upper management and lack of trust

Talented people, competitive
Contract Specialist (Former Employee) –  CaliforniaSeptember 7, 2017
There are a lot of talented people in Huawei who work very hard on every project. They are competitive while they are all very friendly.
I would say the work atmosphere is superb. Coworkers respect each others and appreciate what others have done.

It may be hard for local Americans to feel to be a part of the company since coworkers are mostly from China and Chinese is always spoken in all occasions.
Pros
Coworkers' relationship
Cons
overtime work after regular office hours

Great salaries
REGIONAL SENIOR PROJECT MANAGER & PROJECT DIRECTOR (Former Employee) –  Miami, FLAugust 29, 2017
Huawei has great salaries but the job culture for Huawei means you don't have personal life. Huawei don''t believe in the personal life of the employees in terms of the time you need to spend in the office or conected after work,
Pros
great salary
Cons
personal balance life is not possible

Intense workplace with few benefits
Junior Lab Technician (Former Employee) –  Santa Clara, CAAugust 25, 2017
First, for my group specifically, I want to emphasize that I loved my group: they were all highly experienced and hard-working but still fun to be around. My manager was great. However, there were very few perks and constant concerns about the status of our project.

Chinese founded Technology company. Heavy Asian workforce, no understanding of how US government works.
Senior Director Government Relations (Former Employee) –  Plano, TXAugust 17, 2017
There is no typical day in government relations work. I was responsible for legislatures, both state and federal, in the 10 southeast states. Management was pretty much non-existent. Work place culture is stressful for most employees. My job was not hard and enjoyed performing required duties.

It is a good company if you can speak the language.
Staff RF Antenna Engineer (Current Employee) –  San Diego, CAAugust 17, 2017
It is a good company to work if you can speak the language. Open communications. The most enjoyable is always working with challenging projects. The hardest part is the language, that I am unable to understand mostly in the meeting to inter-change ideas.

Very high salary. Negotiate before joining
Principal Engineer (Current Employee) –  Santa Clara, CAAugust 15, 2017
Pays one of the highest salaries in silicon valley. Since most of the management is primarily ex-Cisco or ex-Juniper, culture is very similar to Cisco and Juniper. Being pure R&D, you will work on cutting esge technologies.

Negotiate your salary and position before joining. Career promotion is hard (read impossible) once you are in.
Pros
Great salary, cutting edge work
Cons
Career enhancement very difficult.

Run by Chinese Management
Sales (Former Employee) –  Santa Clara, CAAugust 9, 2017
Management is not experienced beyond Huawei, so does not have a realistic view of the markets and competition. It also very difficult in the US market, as it cannot sell to the US Government and DOD.
Pros
Rarely do you get fired
Cons
Not marketable in the US Market.

People procrastinated to get programs done and ready to go
Sr. Financial Analyst (Current Employee) –  Santa Clara, CAAugust 7, 2017
Everyday there is an intense feeling that programs were not going to be ready by a deadline due to employee procrastination. Not many people planned ahead very well and the constant turnover of employees made it difficult to build any team cohesiveness. People are more concerned about placing blame of the problem on the person rather than figuring out the problem and fix it. Low team camaraderie.
Pros
Great Pay
Cons
Hardly any communication

Boring environment but very well paid
Cloud Computing Engineer Intern (Former Employee) –  ChinaJuly 21, 2017
Spending a lot of time working. My managers are not really nice. They did not try to push me very hard but the job environment forces you to work really hard since everyone in your workplace never leaves the office. It is weird if I left the work early. However, the paid is extremely well in Huawei. They offered a lot of bonus to the employees.

Worst company and culture ever
Technical Support Department (ME (Former Employee) –  EgyptJuly 10, 2017
Huawei is by far the worst company i've worked for. It is definitely an overseas company rather than a multinational company; I've worked for them in different countries and it was common in every single one of them that they always differentiate between local employees and chinese ones.

Management has always to be Chinese & chinese language is widely used in documents, e-mails, conference calls, meetings, etc....

Eng and dispatched people were very good.
Cons
Unwilling to change to fit local markets.
