    I have been working at Fujitsu full-time (less than a 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 a 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.

    Pros

    Relatively stable. If the contract you're working on gets to an end you can apply internally to any open vacancies before the externals do.

    Cons

    There is no effective progression system in place. You depend exclusively on your manager and there is no workaround it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about your internal customer. They do count. Start aplying some kind of management evaluation from the base. 360 is hard to apply but I'm sure it would be easy to have some kind of feedback from the teams who have to deal with their managers and their decisions join a daily basis.

    I have been working at Fujitsu full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Being an outsourcing company for a company in Japan, there's always new things to learn and new challenges to conquer. The monetary benefits are great and its quite easy to apply for leaves, though its sometimes abused by employees.

    Cons

    Employees' career growth is not the focus of this company, typical of a Japanese company. Though there are exceptions especially when you're on the good side of your managers and supervisors, typical of a company in the Philippines. Lots of under-performing who are given endless chances because they'd rather keep a rotten tomato than lose it. Again, typical of a company/business in the Philippines.

    And being typical of an outsourced company, clients don't trust right away and they'd think twice of training staffs to perform projects. It can't be helped when its common in the Philippines for incompetent people to be hired in crucial positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus not only on the employees' financial gains and benefits. Though most would prefer getting paid while not working and learning much, there are truly exceptional employees who want more than just a paid job.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    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.
