Huawei , a competitor to Cisco in the routers business and Samsung in the handset business, had an excellent 2012.
Profits rose 33 per cent to 15.4 billion yuan, about $2.4 billion, according to Sina.com's English language site.
And now, 81 per cent of that money is going to employees.
The company just announced it will pay $1.9 billion in bonuses to many of its 150,000 employees.
That averages out to $12,000 per employee, but most of the money will go to "level 3" executives and higher.
