Challenging lace to work
Senior PMO Consultant (Former Employee) –  Shenzhen, CNJanuary 22, 2019
Huawei is challenging place to work since the company policies and practices are not made clear to an outside contractor. Possibility to present new ideas is encouraged, but how they are further processed in the company is not not visible. I think working as a employee would give more visibility to the company overall.
Pros
Expertise is appreciated.
Cons
COmpany is not "see through"

Contractor at Think Tank
RTL physical design prototyping, contractor (Current Employee) –  Plano, TXJanuary 21, 2019
I didn't have exposure to full-time work. My review is limited.

Because of Chinese culture, very little is shared outside one's role.

As a physical designer, I was not a required part of the team; my contribution was optional, and therefore, this has been one of the toughest contracts to complete.

Fast growing company with lots of career advancement opportunities
Marketing manager (Former Employee) –  Mountain View, CAJanuary 17, 2019
Typical day at work would be with lots of meetings, conference calls across different time zones, so irregular/long hours can be expected.

I grew with the company's global expansion and its 2C transition phase, a lot of opportunities and responsibility shifts. Good for someone who is looking for challenges and opportunities to grow.

The management is very centralized, meaning there is little autonomy for regional/country teams, to ensure aligned mission and strategy, so there would be a lot of internal communication going back and forth, then progress can be slow and in small steps.

Internal process can be annoying, some of them are not well designed and integrated, so be prepared to trouble shoot for the system while doing your job using the system.
Pros
career growth
Cons
high pressure

The military background of the Huawei Founder is truly evident in the company and it's goals.
Philippines Senior QA Manager (Former Employee) –  PhilippinesDecember 17, 2018
Huawei Philippines is a very poorly run company that has little regard for Quality Assurance. and total customer satisfaction. It also has little regard for the well being of it's staff the important role they have in carrying out projects efficiently. If they practice what they preach they will be much more efficient and have significantly better profit margins.

Very cold work environment and mostly ex-pats have work exclusively with other ex-pats not local US sale employees
Director of Channels Cloud/Data Center (Former Employee) –  Cupertino, CANovember 15, 2018
It was a cold work atmosphere. Communication barriers very challenging to overcome with sales executive management and difficult to communicate US ways of conducting business in America vs. overseas practices in APAC. Price negotiations with American business challenging to cooperate with US clientele business requirements and not flexible to rip and replace incumbent competition in US accounts.
Pros
Small company lunches dinners to celebrate holiday events
Cons
Short breaks and strict times set on working schedules

Site Engineer-Team Leader/Microwave Engineer (Former Employee) –  PhilippinesNovember 6, 2018
Most of the time I'm working in the field. Their is no time for career advancements. Always guiding the subcontractor for their good quality of work. It should be a 100% completed with minimal punch list

Pros
Competetive Benefit
