    I have been working at Fujitsu full-time

    Pros

    Good product set with some very bright and hardworking sales people. Business is geared completely to Government and Defence, great if this is your sector.

    Cons

    FJ is a very successful business in Government and Defence - it is a case of if it works there it must work everywhere. Wrong! Poor management with no idea of what happens in the real world. Process geared for Government and Defence - Governance is completely unsuited for Private sector PROCESS!!! Sales are the bottom of the pile - you will never make your OTE as Finance have written the comp plan in such a way you can never achieve the various gates. Unrealistic targets- most of the sales people have been at FJ for 10-20 or even 30 years and seem to be happy 'nearly' doing their number Huge turnover of sale people. I have seen a number of very good people come and go in a short time period - one has just left after a year and I know of 3 others from the same team that are leaving or want to leave due to overbearing, poor, condescending management. If you have read this far then I have only one further piece of advice - don't join Fujitsu, you WILL regret it.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your sales team with respect and as professionals which means you do not need 3 reports per week for information that is already in Siebel or the poor implementation of Salesforce. If you want to expand your market share in X86 and Storage then get a team of 30 graduates and get them bashing the phones. Wrest control of your business back from finance and realise that without sales you are never going to grow your business. Get rid of the ridiculous quoting teams and their bad attitudes and 72hour turn around on quotes. But, most importantly sack your entire management team and get in managers that actually can motivate rather than bully, inspire rather than court ridicule and then you might have a company that can attract good people that stay long enough to make a difference to your business

    Pros

    Very nice place, people are nice. Low turn over due to the high unemployment rate.

    Cons

    HR unable to provide clear and concise answers. Low turn over due to the high unemployment rate. The contracts are never ready on the first day of work. Very bad practice, and quiet unprofessional.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid the nationals and start hiring people that have real business experience.

    Pros

    Easy job made hard by bullying and micro management by incompetent team leaders.

    Cons

    Competent people are targeted for harassment and humiliation. Hard workers do not stay long. Staff are lazy and demoralised. Most training is done by people who don't understand the materials. Team leaders and service controllers don't know procedures. Documentation and procedures never up to date. Management make up for this with a blame the staff culture.

    Pros

    Friendly environment, you will make good friends and gain experience as IT Good benefits

    Cons

    If you want to grow on the company, you need to friend of the team manager. 1-2-1 evaluations very poor, manager's doesn't care with your health or concerns, only the SLA's and to pickup the calls asap.

    Advice to Management

    Stay one day, working as CST and see the pressure that we always have.

    I worked at Fujitsu full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Fujitsu is a great place to work. The people are both professional and committed. It is such a large company that there are lots of opportunities to develop and try new things. I stayed there 12 years!!!

    Cons

    The work life balance is poor and the workload is very high. The salaries are also not great if you have been there some time.

    Advice to Management

    More should be done to ensure individual are constantly expected to work such long hours.
