    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 ManagementAdvice

    Just shut down.

    My experience with the company as a whole was good, but my experience with management was not.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Growth potential is huge when working for a $53.3B organization.

    Cons

    The company is driven by finance. Management is inconsistent and tends to be tied up on internal meetings. Overall strategy is lacking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees and consultants with more care. Improve business processes internally.

    Pros

    If you need a job and don't have one, Fujitsu Consulting will suffice until you find something better.

    Cons

    Incompetent management, poor communication from home office, bad annual review assessment procedure (not to mention just poor overall), lack of growth opportunities within the company and morale is very low

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember that those who work for you to make you look good are individuals who want to succeed in their career too. Leadership comes from upper management and so you need to set the example especially to raise morale.
