Our Telecommunications Heritage
The Fujitsu name is embedded in the telecommunications industry. Fujitsu entered the telecommunications industry in 1945, as the official telephone developer and manufacturing company in Japan.
We’ve grown steadily since those early days, engaging in radio communications in the 1950s and 1960s, and data communications in the 1970s. In 1980, our innovative spark brought Fujitsu telecommunications expertise to North America. We developed with the industry, deploying our first fiber optic transmission systems for MCI in 1982.
We were instrumental in developing the SONET standard and implementing the first OC-3, OC-12 and OC-48 SONET rings.
We’ve been pioneers in the development of MSPPs and ROADMs, and over 400,000 Fujitsu network elements have been deployed by all major carriers across North America.
Fujitsu has maintained a longstanding and highly-regarded position as a market leader by providing best-in-class data networking solutions optimized for Ethernet service delivery and transport.
Today our FLASHWAVE Packet Optical Networking Platforms are carrying the Fujitsu name forward into a new generation of wireline and wireless communications networks, with a clear vision that customers can depend on.
shaping tomorrow with you is our brand promise. It encapsulates who we are, what we stand for and how we are working alongside you to shape a better tomorrow. Let us share the stories showing how we are living the brand
Employees and Our Brand
The FUJITSU brand starts from our employees' behavior. To ensure all employees truly understand and practice the core ideas of our brand, we implement brand education programs through e-learning and other brand training programs. In addition, a monthly internal FUJITSU brand newsletter shares our latest activities.
Fujitsu holds an internal "Environmental Photo Contest" which is open to all employees to increase employees' awareness of the environment. The contest also offers a special "shaping tomorrow with you" prize for photos that best express our brand promise.
We periodically conduct brand awareness surveys internally, and use the results to plan our next steps.
We conduct a Global Brand Awareness Survey externally. The survey is a corporate recognition research targeting strategic IT and business decision makers in 23 countries around the world. We use these and other measures to evaluate the value of our brand. Fujitsu was ranked 22nd in Interbrand's "Japan's Best Global Brands 2013".
Fujitsu has been named in FORTUNE Magazine's 2013 list of 'World's Most Admired Companies.'Fujitsu was ranked among the 350 companies (12 of which are Japanese) in the "World's Most Admired Companies" list.
Conducted through a partnership between Fortune Magazine and Hay Group, the annually published "World's Most Admired Companies" list is determined based on a survey of 15,000 executives at global companies, directors, and industry analysts. Companies that receive the highest scores from both within and outside their respective industries are ranked in nine categories, including quality of management, quality of products/services, and innovation.
Shaping Tomorrow With You
Fujitsu's brand promise - shaping tomorrow with you - is about shaping the future of society and business. It describes our way of doing business, building on our long-term relationships with our customers and society. We work with our stakeholders, using our experience and the power of ICT to contribute to their success and to the future of society.
In creating our brand promise, we asked our customers and employees to share their thoughts on the essence of FUJITSU, and we summarized their responses into our three key attributes:
The FUJITSU brand promise forms the basis for all our activities worldwide. Employees bring "shaping tomorrow with you" to life in everything they do. As a global ICT company originating in Japan, we respect the different characteristics of countries and regions around the world, while valuing our Japanese qualities.
Our corporate philosophy is FUJITSU Way, which is the basis of the FUJITSU Brand platform. FUJITSU Way states our corporate vision as below:
"Through our constant pursuit of innovation, the Fujitsu Group aims to contribute to the creation of a networked society that is rewarding and secure, bringing about a prosperous future that fulfills the dreams of people throughout the world."
Corporate Brand Office plans and manages group-wide brand strategy and has brand managers from each business unit manage brand related activities.
To strengthen the consistency of our communications, we developed and rolled out internally Fujitsu Brand Principles (FBP) which stipulate rules on company names, the symbol mark (logo), product & service brands, our Visual Identity (VI) and Communication Guidelines.
Based on"Code of Conduct," i.e., "We protect and respect intellectual property," we take measures to protect our brand reputation, and respect third-party intellectual property, cooperating with the Intellectual Property (IP) Unit.
We aim for a consistent and distinctive tone of voice and visual style in all our communications.
Global Corporate Design
Fujitsu's corporate design was developed to convey the brand promise "shaping tomorrow with you" in a unique visual statement. The main VI building blocks are the Fujitsu Symbol Mark (logo mark), the Response Module (brand graphic), the Fujitsu Sans corporate font family and a distinctive photo style. In addition, the VI relies on red as the official corporate color, using a striking and differentiating color palette that resonates strongly with the international ICT market. The VI guidelines were rolled out globally for a consistent look and feel. The Fujitsu corporate design has won the internationally acclaimed 2013 iF award*2 in the communication design category.
What makes Fujitsu unique? The answer is simple: our people. We owe our market and technology leadership to the employees who choose to work for us. Continually infusing our workforce with fresh new talent is a vital part of maintaining the top-caliber employee base that makes Fujitsu a great place to work. Our brand promise to our customers is "shaping tomorrow with you." Every one of our employees shares in achieving that promise.

Fujitsu began its environmental protection program in 1972, by establishing environmental control units at every Fujitsu plant. Since then Fujitsu has consistently improved and increased its environmental initiatives, frequently exceeding government mandated standards. With a long history of environmental measures like establishing an ozone layer protection committee in 1987 and eliminating carbon tetrachloride and CFCs from cleaning processes in 1992, the global results speak for themselves:
- Over 90% of Fujitsu end-of-life business-use products are recycled.
- CO2 emissions from energy consumption are 29% lower than in 2000.
- Fujitsu generates 41% less waste than it did in 2003.
- By 2010, Fujitsu plans to reduce its overall level of carbon emissions to below the 1990 level.

- FTSE4GOOD Index (five consecutive years)

Sustainability in Action
Fujitsu telecom products are being designed to reduce footprint, electricity consumption and heating and cooling requirements. Fujitsu products are engineered to be green and RoHS5 compliant. The FLASHWAVE® 9500 Packet ONP satisfies RoHS5 iNEMI guidelines on reducing tin-lead and lead parts. To aid in future recycling, this product is not painted. In addition, other FLASHWAVE platforms are currently undergoing RoHS compliance testing. By the end of this year 100% of Fujitsu suppliers will be RoHS5-compliant.
Fujitsu environmental initiatives extend beyond actual products. Printed technical publications and marketing collateral have been discontinued for Fujitsu U.S. telecom products, saving 2.6 million pieces of paper per year. Information is instead provided online or can be ordered on CD or DVD.
Manufacturing and Operations are also the subject of environment-friendly efforts. The Fujitsu Kaizen program is a continuous improvement initiative that rewards employees for suggesting process improvements. This program places high emphasis on reducing consumption and waste as well as increasing efficiency. Many Kaizens are implemented on the production lines. Suggestions that reduce production time or use less material or energy also reduce the environmental burden of manufacturing.

You receive a phone call for a phone interview where they just ask a couple of questions to make sure you are interested and a real person. Then they brought me in to interview with two people from the department that I would be working in, a supervisor and manager. Very easy interview, all based off of experience. The last process is an hour long where you interview with 3 different people the last one being the VP of the department. Also experience based questions and some situational based. Make sure you impress the VP because he makes the decision in the end, I recommend to just show that you know what the job is and that you REALLY want to do that job.Interview Questions
