    I have been working at Fujitsu Network Communications full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, benefits. Solid tech although not a cutting edge company.

    Cons

    Lots of big company problems - silos people have built around their depts, inflated titles and egos, slow to change (or recognize the need to change), etc.... And its Japanese. If you have worked for a Japanese company, you know what that means.

    Good company to work for if you do not care about stock options. Fujitsu is a market leader in Transport.

    Former Employee - Machine Operator I in Richardson, TX

    I worked at Fujitsu Network Communications full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    My co-workers were nice to work with, the employee atmosphere is great, fairly good open door policy's along with Talk To Power. Only some supervisors are great to work with. Certain managers are great. Senior and Junior Vice-Presidents are very nice and easy to talk to. Quick responses from the Director in relations to employee concerns.

    Cons

    Fujitsu doesn't like to hire in there temp employees. Contractors are known to remain contractors for several years. Fujitsu is not really committed to the safety of there employees and contract employees. The pay rate is poor and not very competitive and most employee concerns are not met.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep a closer eye on management staff in reference to violations of safety policy.

    I have been working at Fujitsu Network Communications full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Positive atmosphere with very little politics, games or drama. Management and employees exposed to a larger scope of responsibility because of lean staffing practices. Able to quickly jump on new opportunities with the stable backing of our global parent. Renewed focus on bringing in quality new grad talent contributing to a more vibrant work atmosphere

    Cons

    Because it is a great place to work there is not very much turnover, but those with talent and ambition will find a place for advancement. Cyclical nature of North American telecom market results in periodic budget and hiring freezes (not generally layoffs since the dot com bubble) followed by periods of rapid growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make a better effort at expanding into markets outside North America to reduce impact of cyclical CAPEX spend by major U.S. service providers.

    Pros

    Laid back environment
    Dress code is casual.

    Cons

    Scheduling may be a challenge
    Training method was not a good look. They did not have a manual for all of the job tools needed for troubleshooting the main issues that would come up on a call.

    Pros

    Work/Life balance is really good. Relaxed dress standards. Decent healthcare plan. Nice campus in Richardson. Very convenient location. Close to Frys.

    Cons

    FNC tends to solve budget problems with solutions that have a long term detrimental impact on its employees. As an example, FNC just reduced the maximum number of paid time off hours by a third to make the budget numbers look better. Very little chance for advancement.
