Marketing Manager (Former Employee) –  International8 August 2018
Working with Huawei may be a challenge for someone with a strict adherence to Western work culture. But you have to see the opportinities this place provides. The company is on the rise and has the power, will and resources to invest into its future.

Some Huawei offices are better than others
Service Technical Leader (Former Employee) –  JO, LB3 August 2018
In Huawei, You don't care how difficult the task will be due to teamwork and global support.
Huawei is Perfect to gain experiences and follow processes but there is no enough time for your family.
In All MENA offices, One Engineer can handle product maintenance 24/7 and stay on-call for many years without backup engineer.
In Lebanon office, Employment was based on political parties due to new corrupted management.
Pros
Teamwork, global support and Experience with High scale telecom projects
Cons
No Work/Life Balance. Some Huawei offices are better than others.

Not a good place to work
Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Markham, ON24 May 2018
- Company identifies itself as a cheap hardware manufacturer and except in R&D they don't want to work on edge technologies
- Military style management doesn't want to have stars in the team, new ideas or thinking outside the box are not required.
- In Chinese culture the boss is always smarter and right. Employees should not challenge him/her, especially in public
- Despite financial success top management takes most of the prize home.
- Salary increases are few and far in between. Those who have worked in Huawei a few years find themselves in difficulty making ends meet considering inflation
- Lots of dishonest managers who will promise things to staff and fall short of delivery
- Huge favoritism of mandarin speaking team members, they take the recognition faster than others
- No class based training. Just poorly prepared & old online training on your own time.
- Chinese company appoints a 30 some-year old Chinese guy with anger management issues as head of Canada region ending up in losing one of the top-3 accounts. They demoted him to VP of Sales!! Go figure!!
- Extreme micromanagement in every corner of operation
- Paranoia- Huawei doesn't trust anybody. A regional Vice President in Huawei has a $10,000 spending approval no matter how long with the company!!
- Super heavy on outdated processes with multiple checks so not a penny is lost
- Very difficult to get support from other teams, silo mentality everywhere
Pros
Have to think long and hard.... maybe better than average annual bonus
Cons
Low salaries, Military culture, mirco-management, Impossible approval processes, lots of hidden agendas

Good for First Hand Experience
Network Engineer (Former Employee) –  National Capital Region17 April 2018
Life as a network engineer in Huawei can be stressful. Projects always have tight deadlines and very strict requirements from customers. But this type of environment can give you a very good experience which can mold you to be a better network engineer.

A typical day at work includes managing the projects and keep subcontractors in check for anything that needs to be done. Supports customer on their technical needs and also part of the job is to design and plan out every project. For example new router integration, card expansions, migration, etc.

I have learned that in this business you should be patient and always keep a positive outcome in mind. Every show stoppers in a project should be dealt with immediately because this can greatly effect the delivery.

Management of employees in the company is what I least like in Huawei. There is no clear path on employees growth in salary and in position level.

Work environment not conducive

Pros
good bonuses
Cons
lack of effective HR involvement when it comes to local concerns
