Network Engineer (Former Employee) – National Capital Region – 17 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.
Operations Director (Former Employee) – Orange, MS – 22 March 2018
management structure is virtually non existent, supervisory roles are not effective, company direction changes too drastically. Operations is highly focused in satisfying what Headquarters (in China) are requiring, not allowing for local involvement in decision making.
lack of effective HR involvement when it comes to local concerns
Senior Hardware Engineer (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 3 February 2018
I am a current Huawei employee and my experience here has been great. I worked with a lot of smart people and learnt alot. Management is great and is generally supportive if you want to try something new.
Cons: 1) Hard to move upwards. Organization is relatively flat.

Senior Wireless RAN Engineer (Current Employee) – Markham, ON – 10 September 2017
A wonderful place to start off your career, a lot of opportunity is given to fresh men to explore and grow in their chosen career. There are tons of documents available to new hires to help build competence.
Management (Former Employee) – Markham, ON – 22 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.
good for new commers.
five people work load for one person. no family time, self respect and dignity goes into drain. slavery environment. Expats are biased.

Engineer (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 26 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.
