Great Technological Giant with tons of technology to work with
Solution Manager (Current Employee) –  Markham, ON13 March 2019
Definitely great place to work if you are looking only for $$$ and self study. To survive you should be very dynamic and willing to learn on the fly and know how to manage sneaky folks around you. BUT aside of that Markham, ON Office is very controversial and with really weak management place. You better be a Chinese if you plan to achieve Big serious positions there. Competitive salary but No life balance. Not really adjusted to the North American market and mentality.
Pros
Technology exposure, competitive salary
Cons
Weak management, HQ driven

Senior Procurement Specialist (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC12 February 2019
Employed are not valued. organizational strategies are not understood by team members . only if you are from the head office are you valued. They don't care about their sub contractors. have to jump through hoops to get paid for out of pocket money.
Pros
decent salary
Cons
bad work environment and team members are not treated well, poor communication

Financial Accountant (Contract) (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON19 January 2019
Very closed off enviroment and teams are not supportive. Often ignored if you are not Asian and English was spoken as a minimum in the company. Management does not care about anyone that is not in a higher position than them.

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.
