    Pros

    The only pros I can think of is the day you either get fired or quit. This company is REALLY BAD.

    Cons

    The company is completely deceptive and they will if given the chance, stab you in the back when you least expect it. This company has the worse management I have ever seen in a company. They lie, deceive, are thieves and if you speak out against them they fire you for it. My advice is to not even bother working here because they are a joke. Maybe not the Fujitsu Laboratories but the FCPA division are very bad and because they have nothing but bad and negative feedback ratings, they are instead posting their jobs on this side of Fujitsu instead of where it belongs, over at the FCPA portion of their reviews. Again hence the deceptive practices they so willingly love to practice.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to not be common theives and learn to run a respectable business with a code of proper ETHICS.


  7. Basically good to be the first job, not the lifelong job.
