Any non-chinese working for a Chinese company? Can you share your experience?
Chinese companies are coming strong. Alibaba, Huawei, Tencent and others, at least in the Seattle area, are seeking aggressively and offering very good salaries.
There is a lot of uncertainty regarding being a non-chinese in these companies. Concerns include the language barrier in the office, language barrier communicating with HQ, lack of autonomy of the us locations, lack of growth for non-chinese employees, poor work-life balance, among others.
I would be interested in hearing someone with first hand experience tell their story. Are these companies a fantastic opportunity or a great risk?
It would be simplistic to assume that all these companies are the same, so clarify which one you are talking about.
