    Pros

    It is a lean company, so if you excel at what you do, you can become indispensable.

    Cons

    There is absolutely no desire to make stuff happen, unlike most of the other tech companies in the area. Very disappointing.

    Pros

    Varied experiences, something new every day. With the wide range of customers you could find yourself working on a large base of technology both new and old.

    Cons

    Low Compensation, Quick to change staffing levels as customer base was not solid. There wasn't much communication on what the company was doing except communication with your direct supervisor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on maintaining staff levels to avoid layoffs/turnover

    Pros

    When you are on a client facing project and your are performing well, they are a great company to work for. The project are fun and the non-management people are great to work with on any project.

    Cons

    They will pay you for every hour worked as long as it is not more than 40 hours a week. If you are a contractor for them, then you get paid for every hour worked. This was a failed management trick to save money and screw the employee!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to treat your valued employees in all areas of the business like you do you contractors.

    Pros

    The pay is good and the building was recently updated. The parking is good and the location is good for someone looking in the North Dallas area.

    Cons

    Upper management does not care if someone decides to leave the company. The turnover is very high and work life balance is very poor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make a decision on what the plans are for the Dallas Waterview location.

    I worked at Fujitsu full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This division has since changed its name to Fujitsu Frontech North America. The best reasons to work here are the benefits.

    Cons

    This division has struggled for years creating POS systems and solutions that are not distinguishable from the competition. Management lacks real experience in the North American Market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to hire management team with US Retail experience. Current management is very lacking in this area and it shows throughout the company.

    Pros

    The position is very easy. They offer overtime from time to time.

    Cons

    It seems they would hire just about anyone off the streets to be in their call center regardless of their experiences.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some quality people
