    I have been working at Fujitsu

    Pros

    Fujitsu is an underestimated technology company with many good ideas, but sometimes too slow execution of advancements in technology or introduction of new products and solutions.
    The Fujitsu designed and manufactured Notebooks, Desktops, Workstations, Servers and network equipment is on par with anything the top 3 IT equipment producers bring to market. Solutions such as FlexFrame for SAP and products like the BX-series bladeservers are ahead of the competion in many areas. Unfortunately Fujitsu Marketing doesn't seem to have any idea how to promote them, possibly due to the fact that it's budget is many,many, many times smaller than that of for instance Dell. This is very frustrating for the people working in the field because customers more easily complain about products and act as if Fujitsu has supplied them with inferior products, when the concerned issues are either of their own doing and/or readily accepted when experienced using IBM, HP or Dell products.

    General attitude is pretty relaxed even in time of crises. Many manager operate on the basis of “if nobody complains about you, you can basically do what you want”.

    Cons

    There are far too many lower and middle managers who are not needed or perform(very) badly and/or have no vision. Local country directors are swapped out more frequently than is good for the company. Many sales lack the killer instinct forced onto their counterparts at the US compeditors. Many Account managers don't really understand the products they sell and therefor lack the ability to spot opportunities.
     Still there is a lot of “politics” going around especially at pay-rounds and advancements .
    Job training is generally available, but it is up to you to chase them and decide what will be best. The company rarely points people in a direction which will make it’s employees more valuable in upcoming strategic areas.
    Pay is ok....for some, the rest...well ... he did you see the game last night?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know your lower ranks, they do the majority of the work.
    Prevent silo forming and focussing on sales people. Most of them couldn't sell themselves out of a paper bag without the help and support of a whole team of logistics, services, pre-sales engineers, etc.
    Prevent marketing people from attending all the nice events outside the company, other disciplines can equally benefit from the contacts and information gained at such events.
    Stop slapping sales on their shoulder if they finally score a deal of any magnitude. It just might be so that for instance a lonely field engineer saved or secured the deal by unselfishly working through the night or a weekend without any additional reward. Sure sales run risks, but than they are paid handsomely to take and accept risks.

    Cons

    Speed to react

    To many layers of Management make it very difficult to see the vision from execs translated into real activity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove layers of middle management and implement a better management training programme to ensure people promoted from within get the skills they need
