To keep the research engine turning — especially in mobile devices, where Huawei is making a big push — the company needs to attract the best talent. Victor Zhang, chief executive of Huawei UK, talked about why he chose to join straight after graduation, after doing the milk round in Shenzhen in 1998.
"Huawei actually had one of the best environments," Zhang said. "Everyone was very dedicated, especially since the salaries were higher than others."
Employees can buy the products they work on: there are shops in Huawei's headquarters with handsets on sale, for instance.
