    Pros

    Great Benefits, great people, great products.

    Cons

    The imaging side of the business is struggling with the changing technology, so downsizing is happening yearly.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to develop emerging technology to keep imaging alive


  2. Technical Support

    Pros

    The opportunity to work with great people and the latest imaging technology. Facilities are up to date and sufficient and employee benefits are very good.

    Cons

    No defined career path at least in the technical service department. Workers are a bit micromanaged and there is definitely a promotional ceiling in the tech service department

    Advice to Management

    Stop micro-managing and let the teams with the operational knowledge dictate the timeline for deliverables. Better define and support career paths

    Pros

    Business Unit was small enough to make for a challenging and diverse job. Good work life balance

    Cons

    Disconnect between Sales, Marketing and Operations. Too many long-timers on the payroll across the board from simple operator to executive management. Perks are almost non existing

    Advice to Management

    Hire the right people with the right skill sets for the work that needs to be done in order to succeed as a business and don't create positions based on the human resource that is available.

    Pros

    I truly enjoyed my time at Fujifilm. I worked at home and never felt pressured by my managers or other departments. Seem to have a very easy-going culture internally.

    Cons

    Only complaint I have is that the product training needs to improve in order to really succeed in the marketplace.

    Advice to Management

    Improve internal communication with the salesforce


  7. Opportunities contingent upon management at each plant, the newer technologies have the more progressive leadership

    Pros

    Tuition Reimbursement, The company had a great and friendly culture. Started perusing green policy's. Opportunities for training on many company sponsored events.

    Cons

    The company outsourced 95% of its photo service and support to a company called CES (which is a terrible place to work!!) They outsourced their phone support, parts, warehouse, and other operations tasks. Was a good place to work, not so much now from what I heard from current employees.

    Advice to Management

    STOP OUTSOURCING!!!

    Pros

    Although direction from leadership was limited to department objectives, the company provided annual state of the company meetings outlining how the company was doing financially and which direction the company was headed.

    Cons

    The directors of each department should have relayed more information to employees to help their employees understand the departments' objectives and expectations of their staff.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to keep subordinates apprised of future plans to provide employees with sufficient time to prepare for changes as they relate to the subordinates' jobs.


  11. Fujifilm was a top tier employer for many years.

    Pros

    Great products, good people and a company that Employees were proud to represent.

    Cons

    Many of the products are at the end of their life cycle, the company has not done a good job of replacing these items with relevant products for "today".
