    Solid, no nonsense, and a bit unfashionable

    I have been working at Fujitsu America full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fujitsu is coming up on 80 years of existence, so you know it can't be poorly run. Fujitsu has a deep commitment to quality, and honestly cares about the customer, from the top of the organization to the bottom, it is not just lip service. Fujitsu also cares about employees and takes a long term view of this relationship. This kind of stability is rare in Silicon Valley. Fujitsu is not about flashy new fashionable technology, but instead a deep commitment to working together and truly solving the problems that the customer has.

    Cons

    Fujitsu is not a hip start-up. It is a big company, and tends to move very slowly and conservatively, unable to ride the latest trends. You will not find the thrill of a high tech start-up working at the bleeding edge with the very latest, trendiest technology, but instead you will find relatively solid, conservative, and well understood technology that functions without the risk of being an early adopter. In most of the world Fujitsu is an IT superpower that everyone knows about, but in America Fujitsu has a special challenge in that it is relatively unknown. This clash inhibits the kinds of publicity stunts that smaller, hipper start-ups use to market their products. As a predominantly hardware company, software is another area that presents a challenge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fujitsu is very strong in Engineering, and the hardware technology is great, but the ability to get that message to the general market is weak. Fujitsu has an internal culture that it is a dominant force in the market is never reconciled with the fact that very few Americans even know it exists. The average person on the street will mistake Fujitsu for Fuji Film. Fujitsu *should* be a household name, but in America at least it is not. If it was better known, then the strong engineering talent would be in a better position.

    I worked at Fujitsu America full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are many people who have been with company for over 10+ years. People are friendly, many working parents with children (small or big). There are opportunities to change a job within a company, since this company is big and has various subsidiaries, etc.

    Cons

    There are opportunities to change a job within the company, however, the promotions are somewhat limited. Japanese employees from Fujitsu in Japan have more say in everything and all the important decisions are made in Japan.

    I worked at Fujitsu America full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pay high salaries at least 20% over bay Area (average is $170K/year for manager), 5 weeks vacations for 10 years plus employee

    Cons

    Lay off people who they don't like, so it doesn't matter if you are working or not, if the boss like you, you are set.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the good employee, not just the one you like

    Pros

    Not a bad company but used to be better

    Cons

    They had good practice structure and other good policies before the economic turmoil. But after they changed to region based, you cannot expect any carrier rather if you want an immediate stop gap project you can take that up.
