Stagnant company, future outlook is cloudy.

Project Manager (Former Employee)
Kawasaki, Kanagawa (Japan)

I worked at Fujitsu full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGood company to join for young people with no job experience. Will be able to learn about business while working.

No layoffs in Japan, as you get older salary will increase unrelated to performance.

People are nice.

Good company if you want to under perform and but still do not get laid off.

ConsWork efficiency is horrible. Employees has low base pay so they perform unnecessary over times.
Very low salary compare to the market. Since there's no layoffs, some people does not contribute to the company but still get paid higher than the high performer since they are older.

The senior management tells their employees one thing, but their action is completely opposite.

Seniors decides everything. Not open to new ideas. Their reason is, because we been doing this process for years.

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed more innovation for products and ideas if you want to be competitive in the global market. Too many dead weights in the company.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

FSA was a sold company 10+ years ago. But withered away.....

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Fujitsu

ProsNo current Pros. for a long time.

ConsCompany goes through layoff after layoff. From over 500+ down to about 60 in 10 years. No top level management support or business strategy, besides 'just sell'. Poor mid-level management employee support. No HR. Managers are free to manage employees any way they want.

Advice to Senior ManagementJust shut down.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Not a bad company

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Fujitsu full-time for more than a year

ProsFriendly work environment
Relaxed depending on contract
Opportunities for the lucky ones
Great for getting your foot in the IT industry

ConsSometimes management are unable to make decisions and issues are left in limbo.

Fujitsu is a very process heavy company and this can cause a great deal of issues. If a user is experiencing a problem, rather than straight up fixing an issue if there is very little to no impact the company will choose to insist on following process causing a delay to the user.

Pay is terrible compared to other companies. They do not offer a competitive salary.

Advice to Senior ManagementDevelop your staff and give them a reason to want to stay within the company. I understand you need frontline staff to stay frontline, but give them a chance to take on a little more responsibility if they choose and ensure to reward them. Give them a chance to experience a feeling of self satisfaction at the end of the day.

Not the worse but not the best

Senior Installation Engineer and Commisioner (Former Employee)
Solihull, England (UK)

I worked at Fujitsu as a contractor for more than 3 years

ProsGood salaries
Left to complete your work
Varied tasks on each install

ConsComplete inept supervisors
Was once asked to drive from Llandudno to Skegnees to deliver a cable that was 3 meters long on a Saturday. Would have cost over ££250 in wages plus fuel. Put it in an envelope and posted guaranteed Next Day delivery for £6

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the workers, not the guys covering their own arses
