    I have been working at Fujitsu Network Communications full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people are excellent. Many folks have been at Fujitsu for a long time. Work-life balance is good and encouraged. Benefits are ok. Large Tier 1 customers keep the machine turning. Backed by one of the world's largest Information Communication Technology companies out of Japan, Fujitsu Limited.

    Cons

    Fujitsu sustains its reputation on not being first to market but highest in quality. But not being first to market and having a narrowing solution set is taking its toll on market share. The focus has been on flat to declining technology market segments. Five or six years ago there was a major shift in the industry that Fujitsu missed out on. Now there is another and it remains to be seen if Fujitsu can execute on its plans for this latest shift. Fujitsu understands the changing market place and has good strategies to back it up. Strategy has not been an issue. Execution of strategy remains a challenge.

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

    I have been working at Fujitsu Network Communications as a contractor (less than a year)

    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.
