From Shenzhen to Dongguan: Confessions of a Huawei 10-year-old Employee
Since 2006, I have come to Huawei for almost 10 years. Coupled with my husband, he joined Huawei in 1999, so our family has spent a full 26 years in Huawei and can almost cultivate a master's degree.
Twenty-five years ago, I have been staying in Shenzhen, living in Bantian Chunhua Four Seasons Park, a neighborhood of more than 3,000 residents, many employees from Huawei and Foxconn, next door is Shenzhen's famous Four Seasons Flower City. After listening to some taxi masters, they felt that the farthest distance was the Four Seasons Flower City, and they did n’t know where to go if they went further.
I came to Songshan Lake in Dongguan last year. To be honest, my heart is also very tangled. After all, I have been in Shenzhen for so long and have my own baby. I am used to the city of Shenzhen. Cat nests are also regarded as golden nests and silver nests. But when I came to Songshan Lake and watched the blue sky and the lake was shining, I took a long breath toward Daling Mountain not far away: Benbao lived here for the rest of my life.
Is Huawei really so important in Shenzhen or Dongguan?
Since 2015 ~ 2016, I have been working at ease, but I have seen a lot of news from my circle of friends. It seems that Huawei has suddenly become a bargaining chip between Shenzhen and Dongguan, and the dispute between Shenzhen and Dongguan is suddenly abandoned. Do n’t let Huawei run away. I was shocked. I did n’t think there were so many ways. The simple truth was complicated by experts and scholars. The size of Huawei ’s company is getting larger and larger. More than 60,000 employees, and 16,000 employees moved to Dongguan ’s mobile phone terminal industry department. Shenzhen ’s land resources are so scarce. Bantian ’s house prices are already 50,000. Enterprise operating costs are getting higher and higher. It ’s normal for Huawei to find a plot in Dongguan. One thing, and now that Dongguan ’s manufacturing industry is shrinking, companies are urgently needed to move in. Suddenly, such a good son-in-law is coming. Is it just a matter of falling asleep and hitting a pillow?
Without any government intervention, this is a real market-oriented option. Enterprises are looking for a more cost-effective place. Shenzhen + Dongguan is already a very good cooperation model. What ’s so controversial? The little woman was confused and didn't quite understand. Haven't you been talking about integration in the Pearl River Delta? This is not the best integration. In which city is Huawei really important? Of course, salary is the most important.
High house prices are a reflection of Shenzhen ’s dead spots or competitiveness, I do n’t know
Just went to Songshan Lake in 2015. At that time, the house price was 8000, and now it has almost risen to 18,000. Under this year, under the strong leadership of Shenzhen, house prices in Dongguan have basically doubled, and the area near Shenzhen and Songshan Lake has risen even more. Quickly, many Huawei people who bought a house are full of joy. But compared to Shenzhen Bantian's new property prices starting at 50,000 yuan, it is a drizzle. It is basically no pressure to buy a house in Songshan Lake based on Huawei's income, but it will be overwhelming to own a three-bedroom apartment in Shenzhen. This is why many Huawei people are willing to come to Songshan Lake.
Senior Huawei people remember very clearly that in 2002, the opening price of Four Seasons Flower City was 2,000 yuan, now it is 60,000 yuan, nearly 30 times. In fact, my husband and I originally had a four-bedroom in Four Seasons Flower City, which rose to 750,000 in 2009. I hurriedly shot it, and now I am embarrassed to say it. When I think of this thing, the pain in my heart, the pain, what is the concept now, 8 million! I do n’t know if high housing prices are driving Huawei away. I only know that for an ordinary Huawei person, especially a new employee, it is not easy to live easily in Shenzhen. We also need these young people and Apple and Samsung are fighting against each other, and they should not be allowed to spend too much time on the house. Benbao is determined to take care of the elderly in Songshan Lake. As for Shenzhen's house prices, love land.
How beautiful the Songshan Lake is, I ’m afraid I ’m not balanced
Dongguan has always been a large construction site in my heart. There are countless factories and squattered wage earners and migrant girls. In fact, this is also the case in many places in Dongguan now. However, Huawei sits on the shore of Songshan Lake in Dongguan with 8 square kilometers of fresh water and 14 square kilometers of ecological green space. It covers an area of 1,900 acres and has a total construction area of about 1.267 million square meters. It is very beautiful and has a good ecology. The total investment is 10 billion yuan. Construction started in September 2014 and will be completed in May 2017. At that time, 30,000 R & D personnel will gather here. At the same time, it is planned to relocate functional carriers such as Huawei University, R & D center, and pilot test center to Songshan Lake to drive Huawei's terminals business.
I sincerely hope that the arrival of Huawei will find a new manufacturing model for Dongguan and at the same time drive the economic development of Songshan Lake and even Dongguan. The Huawei terminal headquarters project will be constructed according to the architectural style of European towns, divided into 12 building groups, which imitate Oxford, Windermere, Luxembourg, Bruges, Fribourg, Burgundy, Verona, Paris, Gera Nada, Bologna, Heidelberg, Kronov. At the Huayou Association, Ren Zhengfei always wanted Huawei to have an environment like Apple or Google, an excellent environment and comfortable scenes, a low-density urban area. The high-quality mountain and lake resources and human environment of Songshan Lake coincide with Huawei's philosophy and Ren Zhengfei's dream.
Are young Huawei people willing to come to Dongguan? How is life here?
For a Huawei person like me who started a family, Songshan Lake is a good choice. My husband often travels. I can take care of my baby alone. He is now 7 years old. He is studying at the experimental elementary school in Songshan Lake. He took it home and had a good time. If he is in Shenzhen, he can only go to Huacheng Primary School. The quality of teaching is definitely not as good as the current school in Dongguan, and the teachers at the school on Songshan Lake earn about 8,000, which is higher than the salary of similar schools in Shenzhen, so he is especially patient with children. . Of course, it is incomparable with the famous schools in Shenzhen Kannai, but for many backbone Huawei personnel, it has already solved a big knot.
After school, he went to run football near the school. But for the Huawei people who are not married, there are indeed unsatisfactory places in Dongguan. A few girls can't be found here, so many people still live in Shenzhen, but it doesn't matter. The company has a car to return directly to Bantian and take the dragon. High-speed or Shen-wan high-speed, about 50 minutes, not too much to Nanshan. Having said that, it is always a world problem for Huawei programmers to find a girlfriend.
Don't let the noise affect the development, Huawei's survival is not easy
The development of Huawei is not easy. My husband always feels his heroic experience. The mainstream of the domestic telecommunications industry in the early 21st century was international companies such as Lucent and Nortel. The status was basically similar to that of Google and Apple. It felt insurmountable at the time. In the process of surrounding the city from the countryside, even domestic users generally do not believe in Huawei. At the Swiss Telecom for the first time in 2000, I saw the big show of international companies and saw the advanced concepts and products of those companies. They really felt embarrassed and downcast, and thought it was impossible to catch up with Lucent in this life. However, I really found out that these foreign idols have a lot of holes in their appearance. It is reasonable for Chairman Mao to say that “the reactionaries are all paper tigers”.
Huawei products are stable and reliable, and all personal services are good. More and more people who really know it choose Huawei. Facts have proved that Wang Baoqiang can defeat Leonardo's absent-mindedness through hard work. Through competition Lucent and Nortel gradually declined, and then there was no more, because they were merged and no longer existed. Huawei's rivals include not only Cisco in the communications field, but also Apple and Samsung, which are at the tip of the mobile pyramid, to give her husband a compliment here.
Huawei is China's Huawei, not Shenzhen or Dongguan
Mr. Ren Zhengfei's boss has always been very low-key, but no matter how low-key it is, he can't hide Huawei's strength. Huawei is a serious company. Many people may not really know the hard work of Huawei. My husband has been on hand for so many years. , Especially on business trips, staying for a few months, I can only make international calls to communicate with my son in the evening, in order to go global, Huawei people do not know how many times have been rejected, especially in the field of intellectual property, do not know how much to eat Loss, how much money is lost, some are market behaviors, understandably, some are non-market behaviors, which are unacceptable. So last year, Huawei licensed 769 patents to Apple. Many people were excited for a reason.
And just yesterday, Huawei sued Samsung in the United States and China at the same time, demanding that Samsung immediately stop the infringement and compensate Huawei! This is the first time that a Chinese company has initiated an intellectual property lawsuit against a world-class giant! The lawsuit against Samsung is mainly related to 4G standard patents and patents related to smartphone functions. If the lawsuit is successful, Samsung will face not only a huge fine but also a fatal ban! Why does every move cause so much attention now, because Huawei is now China's Huawei, it has its own responsibility and mission.
50It is only a 50-minute drive from Shenzhen to Dongguan. For a global company like Huawei, it is just moving from the side bedroom to the master bedroom for a little more space. There is nothing to be surprised about. Huawei is China's Huawei, national Huawei, and even the world's Huawei, so the argument about "don't let Huawei run away" feels meaningless. But as an ordinary Huawei employee, I have one thing to tell the company. What you should worry about most is not to let good employees run away, such as me, including my husband.
