    I worked at Fujitsu

    Pros

    Great middle management and co-workers.

    Cons

    Consolidation of divisions currently causing lack of focus. Fujitsu America division shifting to more of a consulting lead organization with hardware drag. If you are focused on Enterprise product sales... consider another employer. If you are more focused on consulting services and can survive the current turmoil... probably a good place for you to land.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The shift to a consulting lead sales model will be viewed as a necessary adjustment. However, the consulting focus has significantly impacted any chance of being considered a significant hardware vendor in North America. Fujitsu Limited's requirements to dramatically increase their product sales will not occur with the confusion and uncertainty within the sales forces.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    fujitsu has a good compensation and benefits but a more agressive management with communication and transparent vision for the company will help.

    I have been working at Fujitsu

    Pros

    good health benefits, global company has a brand name

    Cons

    focused on small group of big sized clients, job may involve lots of travel, job uncertainty

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide attractive options for employees who are willing to relocate to other locations such as Costa Rica, India or Middle East. The company needs to look for projects of all sizes, expecially in a down economy. Be ready to cut hourly costs to clients to get the foot in the door.

    Pros

    nice balance between life and work. They treat people with respect.

    Cons

    career growth is not so great. training opportunities are not so great

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    this company can grow faster if we use human resources in a better way. Reward or Fire should be adopted at all levels. Almost nobody gets fired for doing a bad job. Interview process is not so good. the screening should happen more professionally. If I get a chance, I would offshore the interviewing process to someplace where they can afford smart professionals to interview the candidates. Also, there should be "JUST IN TIME" training and offshore professionals should be able to train the candidates on what they need to do during bench time, etc.

    Pros

    Great people with mostly good athmosphere. Good health medical support for employers.
