Business was not stable enough to keep staff

Customer Service Engineer (Former Employee)
Portland, ME

I worked at Fujitsu full-time for more than 3 years

ProsVaried experiences, something new every day. With the wide range of customers you could find yourself working on a large base of technology both new and old.

ConsLow Compensation, Quick to change staffing levels as customer base was not solid. There wasn't much communication on what the company was doing except communication with your direct supervisor.

Advice to Senior ManagementWork on maintaining staff levels to avoid layoffs/turnover

Upper Management Does not Care for the well being of Dallas employees

Systems Engineer (Current Employee)
Dallas, TX

I have been working at Fujitsu full-time for more than a year

ProsThe pay is good and the building was recently updated. The parking is good and the location is good for someone looking in the North Dallas area.

ConsUpper management does not care if someone decides to leave the company. The turnover is very high and work life balance is very poor.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake a decision on what the plans are for the Dallas Waterview location.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Platinum Level Consultant

Platinum Level Consultant (Current Employee)

I have been working at Fujitsu full-time

ProsIndependence and ability to work your own career. Very little management oversight. Able to write your own ticket. If you like to work directly with clients and deal one on on, then they will encourage it.

ConsYour simply a body. There is no mentoring, no career path, no benefit to the long term career minded consultant. The pure consulting arm isn't really sure where they want to grow and rarely can compete with other companies that keep a strong bench.

Advice to Senior ManagementHave your consultants help drive achievement and direction. They are your ONLY asset. The bench is your responsibility to help

Everybody I worked with from Memphis to Nashville wanted to do as little as possible and the customer is never right.

Field Engineer (Former Employee)
Nashville, TN

I worked at Fujitsu full-time for less than a year

ProsYou will get the best technical training in the POS business. I have had a lot of training and theirs is very thorough. You leave with a sense of Competency. You will always have what you need to suceed, cause the managers monitor everything you do. They are report and numbers driven. You will always know where you stand, so stick to the rules!

ConsThey have too many people who are burned out because they are understaffed. Too much jeolousy among Engineers, only one or two guys I worked with really cared that I succeeded. Very low team participation, minimal and just enough to get by. Everybody feared they were going to downsized or loose pay, very depressing, so I quit after 4 months, when I was prepared to stay for good. Best job I had that got messed up cause guys were not truthful with me on processess of getting things done.

Advice to Senior ManagementEverybody feared they were going to be downsized or loose pay, very depressing. Senior Engineers talked negative about the company almost everyday, until you didn't want to be around the guys. They don't follow through on calls and lie about their whereabouts. I even tracked on Engineer who GPS who was supposed to be on call with me, and he was sitting at his house probably watching the Tennessee football game. He lied to me about where he was,so I quit after 6 months, when I was prepared to stay for good. Best job I had that got messed up cause guys were not truthful with me on processess of getting things done. You should put everybody on probation and make them reapply for their job. The field Engineers out there are ruining your reputation as a global company. You should hire another firm to Outsource the Nashville district to contractors who need to make a living.

Good place for the right person

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Fujitsu full-time for more than 10 years

ProsGlobal player in the IT services market, with opportunities to work almost anywhere in the world. Industrial partnerships, and potential for involvement in innovative solutions. Colleagues who are honest, genuine, and talented.

ConsUpper management is hopelessly out of touch with the people on the front lines. They talk a good game about how their employees are their most important assets - but they do not put their money or their actions where their mouths are. Resource managers are less concerned with the welfare of their charges (the consultants) than with their own best interests, which frequently are in conflict with the best interests of the consultants they are placing.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf your employees are your most valuable asset, treat them that way. Stop talking about it, and start doing it. Give your resource managers incentive to do what's best for the consultants, not what's best for themselves.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

As a consultant, there are diverse customers to work with

Platinum Consultant - Business Applications Services (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA

I have been working at Fujitsu full-time for more than 10 years

ProsAs a consultant, you get to learn about your customers business and you may change customers every 6 months or 6 years.
The company is getting about paying for performance

ConsBonus program needs some adjustment as it is impacting the rating of some employees who deserve a high rating but the company can't afford to pay bonuses for the pool that achieved or over-achieved their objectives.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop talking and start listening to the employees.

Room for Improvement

Senior Consultant (Former Employee)

I worked at Fujitsu full-time for more than 5 years

ProsLarge company had big buying power for reduction of costs for benefits.
Broad spectrum of opportunities to learn and work in different industries

ConsSales staff were encouraged to only hit a home-run. So, if your role is supporting a product that does not give a large commission to the sales representative, that segment of Fujitsu's business will slowly fade away.
Slow to recognize market value for existing employees. So, new hires get brought on at market value, but existing employees do not get an opportunity to have salary increased to market value.

Advice to Senior ManagementAdjust sales teams to sale specific product lines rather than across a full solution industry (i.e PeopleSoft Sales team should be built, Fujitsu had an ERP sales team). This would allow for continued growth within given supported products, and allow for a larger profit margin for the support team

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

FNC Learning to be more than a box vendor

Sales (Current Employee)
Richardson, TX

I have been working at Fujitsu full-time for more than a year

ProsFNC is very technically strong in the areas they focus which is Layer 0 & 1.
High quality personal
Focused on the customer
Ability to learn new customer requirements

ConsThe biggest issue is the same issue you would hear at any large manufacturing company today. Not moving quickly enough to adapt to changes, politics are thick and get in the way of doing the right thing at times. But the biggest issue outside the normal stuff is they are trying to become more than they were in the past but they are using many of the same people. I think this is a failed model.

Advice to Senior ManagementLook outside the typical group of people and be willing to listen to radical ideas that may require a rethink of the "norm".
