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. In conclusion, this paper presented a strategy of integration of corporate culture in Shanghai Electric MandA: 1) To clarify the objectives of post-MandA development; 2) the objective orientation of post-MandA cultural integration should be defined; 3) the model and plan of cultural integration and the steps of cultural integration and the overall analysis of cultural integration synergy factors; 4) the organization should create an excellent corporate culture and resolve organizational barriers through cross-cultural learning, establish a platform for good communication and strengthen literature and training; 5) strengthen the construction of institutional culture, a cultural integration system that can supervise and control the situation of cultural integration; 6) establish a scientific and reasonable performance appraisal culture that would strengthen the evaluation of corporate incorporation, improve the evaluation system of corporate culture and strengthen the evaluation of new culture.
