    Pros

    Best reason to work here is the personnel. Good people and open communication between employee and management. Leadership is accessible.

    Cons

    Chaos. Processes are broken and tools are clunky and not integrated. It's very difficult to complete assignments, many errors are created therefore you're working overtime to fix everything. No one wants to spend the time or money to fix the processes.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the process and invest in the right tools.

    IT department in shambles after new CFO took over

    Pros

    Unfortunately, the collaborative environment of the past has evaporated, so there is no positives left in Sunnyvale office.

    Cons

    After the new CFO took over, the IT department (which rolls up under her) has become divisive and toxic to work in. Several smart employees have left and many others have been sidelined by her and her inner circle of advisors. Team work and camaraderie is non existent and it gets worse by the day.

    If you are looking for a career in the tech industry in the Bay Area, there are *many* other options. Avoid Fujitsu (Fujitsu America) at all costs, especially in the CFO/IT organization.

    Advice to Management

    If the CEO can make a bold decision and reverse his bad move of bringing back the current CFO (who has had a checkered past at other companies), maybe there is hope. The folks in the trenches work hard and will continue to work hard, but the divisiveness and political nightmares will hopefully subside and at best, go away with her.

    Pros

    Benefits, Professional Environment, Multi-Cultural Work Force

    Constant executive turn over, strategy changes, and restructuring. Work environment seems to be do just what's needed.... and hope you're not on the next list to be dismissed due to restructuring.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the culture

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

    Work on maintaining staff levels to avoid layoffs/turnover

    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 Management

    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 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 Management

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

    Pros

    Independence and ability to work your own career. Very little management oversight. Able to write your own ticket. If you like to work directly with clients and deal one on on, then they will encourage it.

    Cons

    Your simply a body. There is no mentoring, no career path, no benefit to the long term career minded consultant. The pure consulting arm isn't really sure where they want to grow and rarely can compete with other companies that keep a strong bench.

    Advice to Management

    Have your consultants help drive achievement and direction. They are your ONLY asset. The bench is your responsibility to help
