- 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- Super heavy on outdated processes with multiple checks so not a penny is lost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
Have to think long and hard.... maybe better than average annual bonus
Low salaries, Military culture, mirco-management, Impossible approval processes, lots of hidden agendas
