    Pros

    The salary and the vacation package are comparable to other company.

    Cons

    The management is lack of leadership, people skills/skills to manage their staff, and no team work which is I believe a necessary to a wor environment.

    Advice to Management

    FMSA management needs to learn people skills to manage staff properly.

    Pros

    Small company environment allowing for diverse assignments to be undertaken and implemented. Good working environment with competent people performing at a high level.

    Cons

    Parent companies needed to pursue a different, more cooperative vision for the overall company to be competitive in a mature worldwide market

    Advice to Management

    Joint venture subsequently bought out by one of the parent companies and subsidiary closed; so, prior management is no longer available to receive feedback

    Pros

    Great middle management and co-workers.

    Cons

    Consolidation of divisions currently causing lack of focus. Fujitsu America division shifting to more of a consulting lead organization with hardware drag. If you are focused on Enterprise product sales... consider another employer. If you are more focused on consulting services and can survive the current turmoil... probably a good place for you to land.

    Advice to Management

    The shift to a consulting lead sales model will be viewed as a necessary adjustment. However, the consulting focus has significantly impacted any chance of being considered a significant hardware vendor in North America. Fujitsu Limited's requirements to dramatically increase their product sales will not occur with the confusion and uncertainty within the sales forces.

    Pros

    - Compensation and benefits are good
    - Trying to become bigger and better
    - They leave you alone with your clients as long as you're billable

    Cons

    - They're trying to make Fujtisu Consulting into an IBM Global Services and other big consulting firm, but they are far from it. I used to work at IBM Global Services and its night and day difference.
    - Not a long of communications between management, consultants, and peers
    - Not a lot of processes or methodologies, but they're trying
    - Focused is mostly in IT consulting, esp. in SAP, Oracle and ERP consulting. So if you're into ecommerce, web, strategy, business process, then you're the few
    - Not a sharing / collaborative culture
    - Don't have the resources for training and equipment like IBM and other big consulting firms

    Advice to Management

    - Build a collaborative culture
    - Get employees to network and know each other
    - Invest in employee's training

    Pros

    Contract, but can't really say

    Cons

    poor communication with practice managers between contracts, too many accounts and passwords to manage, when contracting out

    Advice to Management

    you're too big and not capitalizing on the talent you have. with a little more people networking, you could do a lot more

    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 Management

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

  10. Good company to work for if you are willing to travel.

    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 Management

    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

    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 Management

    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.
