    Pros

    Good customer focus and robust tools. Many capable professionals (and many more left). Good benefits.

    Cons

    Job security is long gone. Staff is being laid off every 1-2 quarters, going back more than two years now. No real raises and the job promotion process is nothing more than a path on paper. No promotions to be had. I gave opportunites one star, should be zero.

    An IT company that does not pay for professional development for its staff! That's enlightened management. No certifications paid for due to cutbacks unless you count the chintzy little online e-learning with one of those packaged services.

    Advice to Management

    Get act together, provide secure jobs and treat your valued employees like partners, not hired hands.
    Quit laying off experienced staff in one area and hiring contractors to do the same job as higher rate in another area.
    Yamamoto-san writes great white papers and vision of human-centric IT but there is no human centricity in this organization. Take care of your people first sir, and stop asking about FNA respect and committment to Japan company. No respect, no loyalty.

    Pros

    Laid-back atmosphere, good entry level position.

    Cons

    Underpaid employment and favoritism. You can have 95% closing ticket ratio but you will never see a raise. (S&C) $16.00 an hour

    Advice to Management

    Train your employees better. Input a better knowledge base system.

    Out of touch management and atrocious change control and excess bureaucracy hold down workforce.

    Pros

    Decent facilities. Nice benefits. Many very good employees on the lower level -- Fujitsu is selective and at least seems to be good at picking good people. Lots of employees with 10+ years at Fujitsu, too. Employees are a bit dejected, but they are at least proud of their work.

    Cons

    Management is largely out of touch and has little idea what its engineers are doing. Different groups don't talk with each other. No raises for past 2 years. Sunnyvale is supposedly the North American HQ, but in reality, the Dallas office runs much more things. And Dallas and Sunnyvale don't talk. Home office in Japan occasionally butts in -- and they're even less transparent. We have no idea what they're doing. Unfortunately, the bad employees seem to become managers, architects, and other upper levels. Non-technical retail managers are brought in to do technical jobs -- and fail horribly.

    Advice to Management

    Fire about half of upper management -- they seem to have no particular purpose. Hire more "grunts" with the savings. Dump the current change control system -- it should be no more onerous than is necessary to do the job. Instead, it's a productivity destroying bureaucratic morass.

    Pros

    Some are great people to work with

    Cons

    Upper management micro-manages, the HR department is very weak, company is having a hard time financially due to being late and over-priced in the market. Lack of policies and procedures.

    Advice to Management

    Get new blood in and remove the dinosaurs in upper management.

    Pros

    No current Pros. for a long time.

    Cons

    Company goes through layoff after layoff. From over 500+ down to about 60 in 10 years. No top level management support or business strategy, besides 'just sell'. Poor mid-level management employee support. No HR. Managers are free to manage employees any way they want.

    Advice to Management

    Just shut down.

    Pros

    The opportunities for advancement seemed very open. My coworkers we smart and competent.

    Cons

    Communication from management was lacking. When reviews were given to immediate managers from the Quality Assurance department, it would take several weeks for that information to make it to the employees, thus leaving a gap between feedback given and changes to be made. This created a loophole where mistakes were unable to be corrected in a timely fashion thus putting the work of the employee in jeopardy.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication between the employees and managers is a must. Withholding information from employees when it comes to performance improvement not only hurts the employee's ability to grow but also hurts Fujitsu's reputation with their customer (A&F in this case).

    Pros

    The salary and the vacation package are comparable to other company.

    Cons

    The management is lack of leadership, people skills/skills to manage their staff, and no team work which is I believe a necessary to a wor environment.

    Advice to Management

    FMSA management needs to learn people skills to manage staff properly.

    Pros

    - Compensation and benefits are good
    - Trying to become bigger and better
    - They leave you alone with your clients as long as you're billable

    Cons

    - They're trying to make Fujtisu Consulting into an IBM Global Services and other big consulting firm, but they are far from it. I used to work at IBM Global Services and its night and day difference.
    - Not a long of communications between management, consultants, and peers
    - Not a lot of processes or methodologies, but they're trying
    - Focused is mostly in IT consulting, esp. in SAP, Oracle and ERP consulting. So if you're into ecommerce, web, strategy, business process, then you're the few
    - Not a sharing / collaborative culture
    - Don't have the resources for training and equipment like IBM and other big consulting firms

    Advice to Management

    - Build a collaborative culture
    - Get employees to network and know each other
    - Invest in employee's training

    Contract, but can't really say

    Cons

    poor communication with practice managers between contracts, too many accounts and passwords to manage, when contracting out

    Advice to Management

    you're too big and not capitalizing on the talent you have. with a little more people networking, you could do a lot more
