    Pros

    It's a job that pays money.

    Cons

    It's not a great job, and it pays a minimal amount of money and they lack in giving raises. No incentive to do good work. Never hear anything positive from upper management. Have worked for the company 5+ years and have seen one small raise, and it's not looking good for a raise in the future. The worse part is you can be one of the hardest workers for the company and get no respect or raise no matter how much you know and learn. You can watch new employees come in and see them making $2+ more than you and do much less, if any, work. The company seems to have a real issue with getting rid of the employees who do nothing, and they're quick to point the finger at someone who occasionally speaks up about how unfair the company is to it's employees. You can work your ass off for Fujitsu, but it will be a waste of your time and effort as it wont get you anywhere within the company, and it sure as hell wont get you more money in your paycheck. I'd recommend this job to you if you can't find anything else, but I wouldn't plan on making it a permanent job, but make it more of a stepping stone until you can find something better. Engineers in the company are some of the most unintelligent people I have met with the title "Engineer" and usually make the technicians do all of the building of assembly lines, or they will take 6 or more months to cut out a single board for the assembly line. Plenty of money is wasted on people who do absolutely nothing. If they could remove the leeches and give that extra cash to the hard workers they wouldn't really be missing out on production and they'd probably see an increase in quality and quantity with the non workers out of the way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to your employees, listen to them, and give the respect and money to the ones that deserve it. Don't be afraid to let go of the people you hire who come in and do nothing but suck the company dry of whatever money they have. Quit making excuses as to why you can't give raises, and start giving raises to only those who deserve it instead of giving your 10 cent raises to everyone whether they deserve it or not. Instead of blowing someone off when they come to you and ask for a raise, how about you actually consider it and try to make it happen? Especially if that employee is well deserving of one.

    Pros

    FNC is very technically strong in the areas they focus which is Layer 0 & 1.
    High quality personal
    Focused on the customer
    Ability to learn new customer requirements

    Cons

    The biggest issue is the same issue you would hear at any large manufacturing company today. Not moving quickly enough to adapt to changes, politics are thick and get in the way of doing the right thing at times. But the biggest issue outside the normal stuff is they are trying to become more than they were in the past but they are using many of the same people. I think this is a failed model.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look outside the typical group of people and be willing to listen to radical ideas that may require a rethink of the "norm".

    I worked at Fujitsu

    Pros

    The opportunities for advancement seemed very open. My coworkers we smart and competent.

    Cons

    Communication from management was lacking. When reviews were given to immediate managers from the Quality Assurance department, it would take several weeks for that information to make it to the employees, thus leaving a gap between feedback given and changes to be made. This created a loophole where mistakes were unable to be corrected in a timely fashion thus putting the work of the employee in jeopardy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication between the employees and managers is a must. Withholding information from employees when it comes to performance improvement not only hurts the employee's ability to grow but also hurts Fujitsu's reputation with their customer (A&F in this case).
