Lenovo could be fun to work at when the work was steady. Everyone would settle into their own "groove" and knock out the tasks at hand. If you are production do not expect to be converted to regular full time. The business model is based on a flexible work force. When they are busy there is lots to do. When they are not, expect to go home.

As a contractor, you won't matter and the regular full-time employees will ensure that you're reminded of that regularly. If you show capability, you'll be rewarded with extra work to fill your already overloaded day. Lenovo will then severely limit the amount of allowed claimable hours but expect all work to still be completed.

I was really surprised by the culture at Lenovo since it is a Chinese company. The company really cared fro their employees and I would say that the bonus structure was top notch for someone that worked in IT department. My co-workers in China were great to work with and was always helpful.
From BU to BU and GEO to GEO and function to function you would get different answers here. I work in the NC office and over half the team is in Beijing (in my group). There are a lot of evening calls and we try to mix it up to be fair but it gets exhausting. Many have it worse than me for sure. Can't imagine doing this when my kids were younger. This is the most global company I have ever worked in and it can be invigorating at times but there are some times when it feels fragmented because different geographies have different needs, regulations, etc.
on-site gym, good focus on charitable service projects, generally happy, friendly people
night calls, so many powerpoint slides, still shedding IBM services

focus on high potential talent, power base is in China. many calls with many regions and an environment where they fire first and then aim. great flexibility but strategy changes every year and never on the same path
Computer Support Specialist (Current Employee) – Whitsett, NC – June 1, 2018
Learned a lot, got to work on thinkpads and desktops as well as tablets. Atmosphere was good. Job security was the worst. Would work for a good 3 weeks then the warehouse would run out the things to do and send people home. Might get a call back in 4 days to come back and work
I did learn how to work though obstacles while doing my daily duties and requirements. The ability to manage my own cases in the given amount of time. The hardest part of my job was to not take negative comments from customers personal as they may have just been frustrated with a process. The workplace culture if very top of the line, as all cultures are embraced and celebrated.
Promises you everything and gives you nothing. Super disappointing company. They don't view you as a person with any value, just a number and quota. Work life balance is awful and you don't get paid overtime m
It was a nice place to work at with great people, but management often lacked focus and few truly cared about their employees growth. There is constant restructuring and territory realignment to allow for steady success.
great workspace and campus
lack of management involvement, poor quota setting for sales team
Lenovo is a clean job and fun for a person who likes fast paced work on an assembly line. The working conditions are excellent but the management can be rude and you don't know about overtime until right before you leave work that day.
