    Pros

    Growth potential is huge when working for a $53.3B organization.

    Cons

    The company is driven by finance. Management is inconsistent and tends to be tied up on internal meetings. Overall strategy is lacking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees and consultants with more care. Improve business processes internally.

    Pros

    You will receive a paycheck.

    Cons

    Managers in this organization have historically prompted subordinates to cater to the needs of a supervisor’s career in deference to their own ambition. The management team is filled with people who lack effectiveness in managing and leading the consultancy to achieve greatness. Promotions are doled out to people unqualified for positions but have proven themselves to aid in career development of their superiors. Loyalty is a one way street.

    Fujitsu talks about Macroscope as a standard methodology but the consultancy has no idea how to implement or manage the process. Macroscope is not pervasive in the corporate approach. It is used as a carrot to entice clients to purchase services.

    There is no vision at the senior levels and is born out by the number of times strategy and focus has shifted in two years. At this date, the management is once again creating vision and mission statements that should have been set two years ago when the acquisitions began.

    Fujitsu has not been able to garner support from the sales team as witnessed by the loss of market share during the past two years. Practice managers and consultants are expected to seek out and sell engagements to clients. If the bill rate for any service drops below $100/hour then the business is rejected. Fujitsu's interest is in driving bill rates up and not in providing excellence in delivery. The culture covets the sale and not the delivery of excellence.

    Executive management is disinterested in leaving their offices to see for themselves what is happening in the field. They rely on the reports of managers who only wish to save their own skin by blaming poor revenue growth on their subordinates. It is interesting that this is accepted by the executive branch. When will they realize that all the transformational leaders have been eliminated by functionaries who only want to climb the corporate ladder?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open your eyes to what is happening below you. Question why a person with one year of consulting experience and no direct training has been named operations director. Question why some very capable people have been "laid off". The answers are clear and simple. It is time for senior management to clean the middle management house of people more adept in politics than in leading people to achieve personal greatness. It is through the success of the consultancy that Fujitus will attain corporate health. If the consutants are not successful then the company is not. Loyalty and sevice is a two way street. Practice management needs to serve their consultants and clients better. Practice managers need to answer their phones... no matter who is on the other end. The idea that if the caller is a consultant then she/he is not important is eronneous.

    In short, stop trusting people who have managed to shrink a cash cow. There is too much selfish motivation and not enough team motivation. This is as much advice as I am willing to give for free.

    Pros

    good health benefits, global company has a brand name

    Cons

    focused on small group of big sized clients, job may involve lots of travel, job uncertainty

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide attractive options for employees who are willing to relocate to other locations such as Costa Rica, India or Middle East. The company needs to look for projects of all sizes, expecially in a down economy. Be ready to cut hourly costs to clients to get the foot in the door.

    Pros

    Compensation in terms of pay, bonus and benefits is comparable to other similar companies.

    Cons

    There are no opportunites for career development at this company. They would rather dump you and hire a new body with the skills they want rather than develop new skills in existing employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Since managers get their positions by tending to their superiors backsides, they only tend to promote underlings that take care of their own backside rather than promoting individuals based on skill or ability. This leads to managers who are ineffective at managing a consulting company and a lack of growth opportunity for skilled individuals.

    An Global BODY SHOP company with high billing rates and low job security

    Pros

    Very good Paralegal and HR Services....Competitive salary with the industry if your at senior level. They often give an 2 weeks notice to their bench employees.

    Cons

    Other than good paralegal and HR services this is an Worst company to join. They say tht they are competitors of IBM, EDS, Accenture, Deloitte but they can't find any good projects for months....simply to say its an "BODY SHOP" company like many Indian companies in New Jersey with an Global Name. All the senior level technical guys are Indians who just want high billing and promotions....they wn't care about employee job security and career. The standards are worst over here....Even if you have good recognition from the clients they can layoff... if your on bench for over 3months. They can't find any project nor unable to bodyshop coz of there high rates ($100 per hr) If your got any project with lesser rate they will simply reject it....Its better to join an 85:15 company if are able to get your own projects. This happens to be biggest mistake I ever made in my life joining this BODY SHOP Global company. Please think twice before you join this company. Its an humble advice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better cleanup your higher management and AE who are unable to get any projects/business. Kindly avoid "BODY SHOP" this is an global company not an 85:15 New Jersey company. Give employee's more job security.

    Pros

    If you have people of your caste and region in higher management, you are covered. If you belong to the caste of the existing VP, you are safe even if you don;t do anything.

    Cons

    Some of the leadership belong to Indian Culture and they tend to be bias in dealings and are more favourable to their caste or religion people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senoir management should be above regional and religious discrimination.

    Pros

    If you need a job and don't have one, Fujitsu Consulting will suffice until you find something better.

    Cons

    Incompetent management, poor communication from home office, bad annual review assessment procedure (not to mention just poor overall), lack of growth opportunities within the company and morale is very low

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember that those who work for you to make you look good are individuals who want to succeed in their career too. Leadership comes from upper management and so you need to set the example especially to raise morale.
