I worked at Fujitsu America as a contractor
If Fujitsu is a stop on your resume that will somehow help you in your career, then that would be the only pro.
My supervisor's SOP (which I found out on the first day) is to either send specific website links to incoming contractors, that was contractors, on the Friday prior to a Monday start as weekend "homework" (which hours are prohibited to claim on a timecard unless approved in advance), and prep for a meeting with the supervisor on the start date; OR to print out portions of the website, that was "print out portions of the website", complete with referral links, with the instruction to read all the material, including materials contained in the links, which are now on paper. The next day, said supervisor will schedule daily meetings of 1 hour with you and will read aloud those sections of the website previously emailed or printed that you have already read. They must be read aloud, there is no getting around it. When you arrive, you will find your Fujitsu computer still in a sealed box, located in a filthy cubicle, with some sort of crusty residue on your desk phone handset; no headset, and no cleaning supplies to be found (even when making the request). No office supplies, those have to be specially requested. Headset request (the position spends considerable time on the phone): Denied. They have no concern for ergonomics there and even if you make a request, your manager has to approve it, and the manager just won't approve it because they don't want to spend the money for a $50 headset that can be reused just by replacing the ear foam. On my first day, my cube had a retractable keyboard tray and a privacy screen on one side of the entry. When I came in on the second day, those had been removed and my computer and phone were on the floor. Person in next cube said that was to be expected because those were "VIP" items that not everyone is allowed. Also said they had to wait 2 years for a headset. Notebook lock at desk was horizontal combination lock from 1981, but engaged it anyway, since it was all that was there. Second day, needed to take notebook to meeting, touched the combination lock to open, and it fell out of the lock hole anyway, so it was broken (probably since 1982). The campus was built in the early 70's and has not been cleaned since (I have photos that are positively nauseating). If you want to cycle there, lock your bike to a tree, because the bike racks might give you tetanus. After I left, they accused me of stealing the incredibly cheap and sparse supplies that they gave me grudgingly, because they were too lazy to open the file drawer in my cube to see them. Pay scale competitive to neither area nor job responsibility/category.
Advice to Management
Clean the campus, thoroughly. Adjust your pay scale appropriately in order to attract the best talent, including management. Ergonomics are essential for the continued health of your employees. Assigning after hours or weekend "homework" to your contractors when you have not approved the overtime will only create problems. And the cafe food is both terrible and pricey.
