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

    Pros

    Laid back environment
    Dress code is casual.

    Cons

    Scheduling may be a challenge
    Training method was not a good look. They did not have a manual for all of the job tools needed for troubleshooting the main issues that would come up on a call.

    Pros

    Excellent family and work life balance, while still be in the technology field. Good career development and management skills. Legendary quality.

    Cons

    Can be slow to enter the market, but once it does it performs well in the market. There is bureacracy, but, then again, it is a large, multi-national, multi-$billion company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep steering it in the direction you are currently taking it. The expansion is having a dramatic, positive effect on the employees.

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

    Pros

    As a leader in the transport space FNC is working hard to maintain this leadership role. One avenue is to add services - data services (ELINE, ELAN, SOAM....) and OTN. This provides ample opportunities to get involved with new/different technologies. FNC is in a position where there are more things to do than staff, so finding exciting things to do is very easy if you are interested.

    Cons

    The Japanese business culture can be difficult to deal with. They ask a lot of questions and you are often left wondering why they are asking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Define the culture and values of the company. Seek to find ways to decouple from Japan (hard to do when the mother ship is Japanese....)

    I have been working at Fujitsu Network Communications

    Pros

    Big company with a little bit more job security/stability.

    Cons

    Constant deadlines with never enough resources. Motivation through shame. Management sets deadline based on wishful thinking and optimistic scenarios. Micromanaging with a great deal of paperwork. Lack of trust in engineer's abilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set more reasonable deadlnes instead of setting everyone up for failure.
