    I have been working at Fujitsu Network Communications full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    People are friendly.
    Close to Starbucks.

    Cons

    Slow in doing things.
    Too much politics.
    If you enjoy working for an old company (technology and infrastructure) this is the place.
    Working on Layer 1 is boring and the chance for you to get a better job elsewhere is small.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    aside from decent compensation, there is absolutely nothing good about this company. leadership at director / VP and above know nothing to run business. they try to constantly change directions and thee is no vision. extremely low moral.

    I worked at Fujitsu Network Communications

    Pros

    Excellent opportunities for outside vendors to make a fortune with incompotent Directors and Managers who don't know what they're doing and have excess budget to spend.

    Cons

    Incompetent and self-serving leadership at the Director and Vice President levels. This place is a classic stovepipe organization. Ship is beginning to sink.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop stealing. Resign and leave - oh wait, no one will hire you.

    Pros

    -Has okay benefits.

    -Holidays and vacations were good.

    Cons

    -Extremely bad employee moral.

    -Lots of management here that's been here for decades (some of them a Quarter-century) and most are incompotent or clueless.

    -Horrible place for younger workers due to non-promotion of internal qualified candidates in favor of nepotism (which is rampant).

    -The most toxic work culture I've ever seen (turf wars, intimidation, widespread anger and frustration, bully style management who hire scapegoats, dysfunctional meetings, completely incompetent HR staff).

    -Overall this place is just awful and I would recommend you look elsewhere (especially if you are young).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company does have the technology and key employees to make it an outstanding company, senior management and director levels are the issue. The company ran much better many years ago prior to the so-called leadership what is in place now.

    Pros

    friendly environment, onsite cafeteria, onsite temp agency manager, most supervisors work well with employees. The work place is clean and tidy. a very nice working environment.

    Cons

    employees don't advance in position to often, temps are kept for extremely long period of time without being hired in or given the opportunity to be hired in. Raises are rare and when given it is usually small and rarely make a difference on the employees paycheck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Utilize Talk to Power, hire the temps in as full time employees. Have better raises and give raises on at least a yearly bases.

    Pros

    A lot of talented people still here. Enjoyable to work with. Interesting technology.

    Cons

    Dedicated effort by upper management to out-source and off-shore everything. Brutal s/w delivery schedules. Layoffs routine. No effort to recruit/hire new/young people. No one knows where anything is headed. Most people are looking for the exits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're building an environment with no discernible future for any of your employees.
