Fujitsu - a nice life to work here with limited growth

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Fujitsu

ProsWorking at fujitsu is a good experience if you want to balance your life & work with a decent pay and benefits

Consprofessionally the scope of growth is limited and the management style is not agressive and very stagnant. lot of que from the japan

Advice to Senior Managementfujitsu has a good compensation and benefits but a more agressive management with communication and transparent vision for the company will help.

Not at Top Tier Level Yet

Principal Project Manager (Current Employee)
Irvine, CA

I have been working at Fujitsu

Pros- Compensation and benefits are good
- Trying to become bigger and better
- They leave you alone with your clients as long as you're billable

Cons- They're trying to make Fujtisu Consulting into an IBM Global Services and other big consulting firm, but they are far from it. I used to work at IBM Global Services and its night and day difference.
- Not a long of communications between management, consultants, and peers
- Not a lot of processes or methodologies, but they're trying
- Focused is mostly in IT consulting, esp. in SAP, Oracle and ERP consulting. So if you're into ecommerce, web, strategy, business process, then you're the few
- Not a sharing / collaborative culture
- Don't have the resources for training and equipment like IBM and other big consulting firms

Advice to Senior Management- Build a collaborative culture
- Get employees to network and know each other
- Invest in employee's training

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Decent pay for decent work

I love my job at Fujitsu, but there is disfunction.

Account Executive (Current Employee)
Minneapolis, MN

I have been working at Fujitsu

ProsGrowth potential is huge when working for a $53.3B organization.

ConsThe company is driven by finance. Management is inconsistent and tends to be tied up on internal meetings. Overall strategy is lacking.

Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your employees and consultants with more care. Improve business processes internally.

Good company to work for if you are willing to travel.

Senior Consultant (Current Employee)
Boise, ID

I have been working at Fujitsu

Prosgood health benefits, global company has a brand name

Consfocused on small group of big sized clients, job may involve lots of travel, job uncertainty

Advice to Senior ManagementProvide attractive options for employees who are willing to relocate to other locations such as Costa Rica, India or Middle East. The company needs to look for projects of all sizes, expecially in a down economy. Be ready to cut hourly costs to clients to get the foot in the door.

Fujitsu Consulting is unable to stop the bleeding.

Associate Practice Director (Former Employee)
Atlanta, GA

I worked at Fujitsu

ProsYou will receive a paycheck.

ConsManagers in this organization have historically prompted subordinates to cater to the needs of a supervisor’s career in deference to their own ambition. The management team is filled with people who lack effectiveness in managing and leading the consultancy to achieve greatness. Promotions are doled out to people unqualified for positions but have proven themselves to aid in career development of their superiors. Loyalty is a one way street.

Fujitsu talks about Macroscope as a standard methodology but the consultancy has no idea how to implement or manage the process. Macroscope is not pervasive in the corporate approach. It is used as a carrot to entice clients to purchase services.

There is no vision at the senior levels and is born out by the number of times strategy and focus has shifted in two years. At this date, the management is once again creating vision and mission statements that should have been set two years ago when the acquisitions began.

Fujitsu has not been able to garner support from the sales team as witnessed by the loss of market share during the past two years. Practice managers and consultants are expected to seek out and sell engagements to clients. If the bill rate for any service drops below $100/hour then the business is rejected. Fujitsu's interest is in driving bill rates up and not in providing excellence in delivery. The culture covets the sale and not the delivery of excellence.

Executive management is disinterested in leaving their offices to see for themselves what is happening in the field. They rely on the reports of managers who only wish to save their own skin by blaming poor revenue growth on their subordinates. It is interesting that this is accepted by the executive branch. When will they realize that all the transformational leaders have been eliminated by functionaries who only want to climb the corporate ladder?

Advice to Senior ManagementOpen your eyes to what is happening below you. Question why a person with one year of consulting experience and no direct training has been named operations director. Question why some very capable people have been "laid off". The answers are clear and simple. It is time for senior management to clean the middle management house of people more adept in politics than in leading people to achieve personal greatness. It is through the success of the consultancy that Fujitus will attain corporate health. If the consutants are not successful then the company is not. Loyalty and sevice is a two way street. Practice management needs to serve their consultants and clients better. Practice managers need to answer their phones... no matter who is on the other end. The idea that if the caller is a consultant then she/he is not important is eronneous.

In short, stop trusting people who have managed to shrink a cash cow. There is too much selfish motivation and not enough team motivation. This is as much advice as I am willing to give for free.

Look to work for one of the "Big Six Consulting Firms"; Fujitsu Consulting will never catch up.

Business Analyst (Current Employee)
Renton, WA

I have been working at Fujitsu

ProsIf you want long-term assignments for slow clients.

ConsConpany strategy is changing every year; it just tries to follow other consulting firms.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay people enough so that you keep competent resources. Provide opportunities for growth.

Should be called Fujitsu Insulting

Senior Consultant (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

I have been working at Fujitsu

ProsCompensation in terms of pay, bonus and benefits is comparable to other similar companies.

ConsThere are no opportunites for career development at this company. They would rather dump you and hire a new body with the skills they want rather than develop new skills in existing employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementSince managers get their positions by tending to their superiors backsides, they only tend to promote underlings that take care of their own backside rather than promoting individuals based on skill or ability. This leads to managers who are ineffective at managing a consulting company and a lack of growth opportunity for skilled individuals.

Fujitsu Consulting - where you can work if you don't want a career

Technical Consultant (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at Fujitsu

ProsIf you need a job and don't have one, Fujitsu Consulting will suffice until you find something better.

ConsIncompetent management, poor communication from home office, bad annual review assessment procedure (not to mention just poor overall), lack of growth opportunities within the company and morale is very low

Advice to Senior ManagementRemember that those who work for you to make you look good are individuals who want to succeed in their career too. Leadership comes from upper management and so you need to set the example especially to raise morale.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
