    I have been working at Fujitsu full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Has lots of good online resources and training materials for employees. Lots of big, long term projects with various companies, but some do not require the most advanced/up-to-date skillsets.

    Cons

    Not much company culture because teams are dispersed everywhere (but good attempts lately to change that). Tends to promote a proprietary methodology of Macroscope, which feels a bit cumbersome and document-heavy sometimes. Feels that attempts to update it last year could've been more. And maybe it should be promoted more outside the company so it doesn't feel so proprietary.

    I worked at Fujitsu as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good People, Friendly atmosphere, great solutions

    Cons

    Unfortunately there is a huge Silo-effect within business units and internal management conflicts, that affect the Fujitsu value proposition and team efficiencies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve management skills (VP of Sales for each Business Unit) and break down the silo-walls/ internal management conflicts. Fujitsu has great solutions, but the barriers for future growth in Canada are limited because of the executive team and their poor leadership qualities and dislike for each other.

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    Work / life balance is terrific.

    The company is so large and rigid there is no flexibility to cater to the needs of individual employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more money on training your employees in order to keep their skills relevant.

    Pros

    Great people with mostly good athmosphere. Good health medical support for employers.

    Individuals are not appreciated but the processes and people who like to kiss their bosses. Do not tell different opinion openly, you will be ended up to the "black list".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More open organisation.

    Current Employee - Business Analyst in Melbourne (Australia)
    Current Employee - Business Analyst in Melbourne (Australia)

    I have been working at Fujitsu full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    My manager and team were great to work with. The job offered a great deal of flexibility and I liked working for a company who cares so much about sustainability and the environment.
    The job I had offered great work / life balance and my manager was flexible with my hours and work.

    Cons

    While they have a lot of good ideals, these are rarely in use on a day to day basis or employees are not encouraged to work towards these ideals. They were meant to be an ITIL company but didn't have any testing strategies or practices.
    To compound the issue all Business Analyst and Software Development roles were moved off shore (for any new positions) essentially making team work in my team much more difficult. As our team supported many different timezones a few people worked really crazy hours for not much personal benefit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more time in processes and procedures. When cost cutting, find ways to make sure that you are not breaking up teams that are working and seriously consider the benefits of moving key roles like software engineers offshore as intangible costs will erode any profit margin and will lower the moral of employees.
