I have been working at Fujitsu Services full-time (more than 10 years)Pros
Varied work, flexible locations, excellent people, flexible benefits, good pension. I've worked at ICL/Fujitsu for over 15 years. I've had the opportunity to choose most of my assignments, and have generally received good support to deliver successful solutions. I think I receive fair remuneration. I particularly like the stars programme, where you can recommend a peer for an award or remuneration, or just a big thank you.Cons
Sometimes forced to use old technology for too long. No consistent mobile strategy. Examples - Most of the world are embracing IOS and android phones, whereas we tend to go for the cheapest, e.g. Windows. We don't embrace Open Source enough. We need more products in our portfolio.
There are a few people who still only do the minimum or worse, try and harm the company.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Eat your own dog food - deploy the same enterprise solutions in house as we do for customers.

- Application Details
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Fujitsu Services in February 2009.Interview Details
Senior Mgmt recommended me. The local staff contacted me for a long distance telephone call with two managers who were sitting together. Reorganisational changes hadn't been announced, so they couldn't disclose the situation details very well. They were to set up a sister organisational unit to the one I was in within the UK and they had no direct experience of it. So they couldn't articulate their needs very well. Nor did I feel they understood how difficult it would be to do what their position required, so it became almost embarassing. Because it was conducted over the phone, I had none of the non-verbal clues to address that sooner. Because I had been through several itterations of the organisational unit that they were to set up, I was able to comment on the benefits and pitfalls. Had I known that that is what they were being asked to set up, I doubt that I would have participated in the call, as I had grown to hate the unit because its hands were tied in so many ways and mangement were constantly playing musical chairs whilst ostensibly trying to make the service easier / better / more robust etc... but the structure made that nearly impossible. I really tried to help them and offered to help them in whatever way they needed, but suspect that they wanted someone who didn't quite know the ropes, quite so well.Interview Questions
