This paper analyzed the existing problems of cultural integration of Shanghai Electric and Tianwo Technology and found: 1) the future development goals of the enterprises were not clear; 2) misaligned values of the enterprises; 3) the integration of corporate culture lacked institutional norms and a single mode of cultural integration led to poor results.
