Huawei Canada - Place of bullying and humilation
Management (Former Employee) –  Markham, ON22 August 2017
I worked for Huawei Canada for 7 years. Since few years Huawei Canada environment has deteriorated due to bullying, shouting and humiliation behaviour in the meetings. Dignity of staff is severely damaged in the work place. People work for Huawei has almost no family life.
Govt agencies should take action against Chinese expats.
Company is good if you plan to work for couple of years but never ruin your life for staying long time.
Pros
good for new commers.
Cons
five people work load for one person. no family time, self respect and dignity goes into drain. slavery environment. Expats are biased.

Horrible place to work
Engineer (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON26 May 2017
Management system is corrupted. Very mafia based. If you are their kisser, then you should be fine. This means that most of the managers were not eligible to be a good people manager rather some good kissers. Anyhow, if you have another offer, I don't recommend this company and if you have not just join them and look around actively.
Pros
None
Cons
Many

Okay company
Ontario Sales Manager (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON23 November 2016
Huawei is a decent company to work for. There are some really good people there who do what is best to grow the business. There isn't always alignment on what should be done to move forward which results in lack of direction

Partenariat gagnant-perdant
Field Maintenance Ingineer (Former Employee) –  Territoire Camerounais18 May 2016
Normalement dans le travail de Field, Ingénieur de terrain en Télécommunications, il n'y a pas de différence entre la journée et la nuit puisque nous sommes appelés à intervenir 24/7. On ne sais jamais quand il faudra partir ou quand il faudra revenir.
Chez Huawei, j'ai appris la démagogie. Avec une politique managériale favorisant un partenariat gagnant-perdant au profit de l'entreprise. Je ne sais pas si c'est le fait du Cameroun ou si c'est comme ça partout ailleurs.
La difficulté avec le poste de Field Maintenance ingineer, c'est que l'on ne s'appartient pas vraiment et combien de fois si on veut parler de la famille.
Par contre ce qui est agréable pour moi dans ce poste, c'est que j'y fais un travail que j'aime, un travail qui me pationne, qui me tiendra toujours à cœur.
Pros
Accès aux équipements pour celui qui veut apprendre
Cons
Défaut de sécurité sociale, mauvaise rémunération, pas de couverture de santé, précarité des contrats, suresploitation

Fast-paced, growing company offering diverse work experience
Project Coordinator/Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON20 February 2016
As part of the quality and operations team with Huawei Technologies Canada, my days are packed with a variety of different projects. I have been interested with various projects and have been allowed to push forward with them. I have been able to gain project management skills, working on construction projects, travel programs and gaining experience with internal compliance testing.

It offers a very diverse work environment as it is a Chinese company. This can be a neat atmosphere to work in, but can also pose some challenges.

The hardest part of the job would be trying to balance internal policies directed from China with local projects and Canadian cultural norms and practices.
The most enjoyable part of the job is that I am never bored as there is a lot of work that needs to be done.
