    I worked at Fujitsu Network Communications full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, family friendly. By and large the people I worked with good people.

    Cons

    Incestuous corporate culture. Everything you say, do, buy and sell must be with other Fujitsu companies. Clueless or gutless on how to run a business in America. Extremely cowardly leadership interested only in self preservation and image. I was with the company for close to two decades and now that I'm out it's glaringly apparent how bad the leadership was in this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out from under the thumb of the mothership and run the company like any other American company. Otherwise, you will be closing your doors in the next five years. Pay and benefits are great - however, these are the two least favored attributes of the most successful companies for which people want to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement 1, 2, 5 year vision plan and come up with products ides before the competition.
    Ratio of planning+PMO team is way too large than development team.

    My experience was very positive, largely due to the VP I reported to while I worked there.

    Pros

    People are friendly.
    Close to Starbucks.

    Cons

    Slow in doing things.
    Too much politics.
    If you enjoy working for an old company (technology and infrastructure) this is the place.
    Working on Layer 1 is boring and the chance for you to get a better job elsewhere is small.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice needed they know what need to be done but will they ?.

    Pros

    A lot of talented people still here. Enjoyable to work with. Interesting technology.

    Cons

    Dedicated effort by upper management to out-source and off-shore everything. Brutal s/w delivery schedules. Layoffs routine. No effort to recruit/hire new/young people. No one knows where anything is headed. Most people are looking for the exits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're building an environment with no discernible future for any of your employees.

    Pros

    friendly environment, onsite cafeteria, onsite temp agency manager, most supervisors work well with employees. The work place is clean and tidy. a very nice working environment.

    Cons

    employees don't advance in position to often, temps are kept for extremely long period of time without being hired in or given the opportunity to be hired in. Raises are rare and when given it is usually small and rarely make a difference on the employees paycheck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Utilize Talk to Power, hire the temps in as full time employees. Have better raises and give raises on at least a yearly bases.
