    I worked at Fujitsu full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    You are your own boss at times, & you have a nice easy days works but not productive so you can start to tune out & do the job on auto pilot.

    Cons

    Little understanding of where they want to go & have fallen off the pace of cutting edge tech & need to get a grip. Looks like they are stuck in the stone ages.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop try to shoot to the stars without putting in the hard graft & hard work to get there. Look like they are just trying to jump on the bandwagon of SAAS & IAAS.

    Pros

    Varied experiences, something new every day. With the wide range of customers you could find yourself working on a large base of technology both new and old.

    Cons

    Low Compensation, Quick to change staffing levels as customer base was not solid. There wasn't much communication on what the company was doing except communication with your direct supervisor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on maintaining staff levels to avoid layoffs/turnover

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

    Pros

    Flexible, ok type work environment, unlike other MNC's did not see any layoff even if you are on bench for long time,Brand name, attractive salary package for lateral hiring

    Cons

    went from bad to worse when I joined...Full of politics ,incompetent mid level managers, not much projects as per database side, even getting a project of 1-2 FT resource is a great achievement for them..can you believe this. .....lucky if you get project matching your skill or else they may push you to some other project which is not part of your skillset..good only for boot lickers...From 3000 employess..it has reduced to 2100..in 3 years....Lot of management changes both in India GDC and in international business....very few onsites...only for 2-3 weeks...no career growth

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management at international level open your eyes/ears ..Don't rate india GDC only as revenue center...need to invest and give direction to India GDC management...else this company wont grow if you are looking for long term profits..

    I have been working at Fujitsu as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Collaborative and friendly working environment. There are no big ego's, all staff from intern to director level engage with each other and share ideas. Internal applications are encouraged for open positions. Good career growth opportunities

    Cons

    As with any globally known company, Fujitsu has a reputation to uphold so it can be difficult to get traction for an idea if there is any perceived risk that could damage that rep. Internally, there's a lot of red tape.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing. A new management team has been installed at my location and so far they have performed extremely well.

    I worked at Fujitsu full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    When you are on a client facing project and your are performing well, they are a great company to work for. The project are fun and the non-management people are great to work with on any project.

    Cons

    They will pay you for every hour worked as long as it is not more than 40 hours a week. If you are a contractor for them, then you get paid for every hour worked. This was a failed management trick to save money and screw the employee!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to treat your valued employees in all areas of the business like you do you contractors.

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

    Pros

    The pay is good and the building was recently updated. The parking is good and the location is good for someone looking in the North Dallas area.

    Cons

    Upper management does not care if someone decides to leave the company. The turnover is very high and work life balance is very poor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make a decision on what the plans are for the Dallas Waterview location.

    I have been working at Fujitsu full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    If you don't like challenge ; business is bad so work is less. You will have a work life balance, but work is sucky and you come home depressed.

    Cons

    Doesn't pay commission on time, appoints wrong people to management, retrenches employees who actually do work but keep employees that do nothing and play politics

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire yourself. And get serious about listening to your employees. Listen to the real people who do the real job.

    I worked at Fujitsu full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This division has since changed its name to Fujitsu Frontech North America. The best reasons to work here are the benefits.

    Cons

    This division has struggled for years creating POS systems and solutions that are not distinguishable from the competition. Management lacks real experience in the North American Market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to hire management team with US Retail experience. Current management is very lacking in this area and it shows throughout the company.

    I have been working at Fujitsu full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    People who work in my department are great and have a great out look on life.
    Team works well under pressure and works well together

    Cons

    Not organised at all, company doesn't have any skills for integrating new staff.
    Training is not provided in most cases and on going assessments do not happen. In 4 years of working here myself and many others in our department have not had 121's.
    Yearly objectives are often published in the 4thQ and are not SMART.
    Pay is is not balanced, it is not based on skill or ability, you can all be doing the same role, but pay can be to £5000 difference between members of the same team.
    Team members appraises are biased and not a true reflection on the work an employee has done, managers are excepting other peoples work as evidence that other people exceeded expectations!

    This probably isn't how most of Fujitsu operates, but it is certainly how my department operates.

    there are no career opportunities, there are plenty of positions posted but most have already been assigned to people and the posting of the opportunity is nothing more than going through the motions and paying lip service.

    Work and Life balance?
    Our Team has had people leave on long term sick and maternity, too which no additional staff were employed to cover these hours, so the remaining team had to do 1 in 1 out weekends and longer shifts in the week to cover the hours and the work load.
    Currently we are still working every other weekend on 12 hour shifts.

    Management
    Office management:
     weak skill base no people skills and are just a waste of money we have more managers on our floor than we have staff and each of those managers have at least 2 team leaders.

    If you want to reduce costs thats where you should start!

    I wouldn't recommend as an employer to a friend as I would like to keep my friends

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be better organisation across the company, we certainly need to become more IT based after all we should practice what we preach.
    Staff need to be motivated by targets that have company benefits as well as employee benefits, setting the bar too high results in a lack of motivation across employees.

    Pay needs to reflect employees skills and attributes, not based on a line managers opinion.
