    FNC Learning to be more than a box vendor

    Sales (Current Employee) Richardson, TX

    ProsFNC 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

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

    ProsStarting pay was OK but don't expect more.

    ConsI have never been let go after two weeks on the job, however, this company did! This company doesn't give new employees chance to prove themselves.

    Advice to Senior ManagementImprove your training.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    My experience with the company as a whole was good, but my experience with management was not.

    Abercrombe and Fitch POS Support Desk (Former Employee) Richardson, TX

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

    ConsCommunication 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 Senior ManagementBetter 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).

    Excellent opportunity in a growing company.

    Manager (Current Employee) Richardson, TX

    ProsOpportunity to be part of a developing company. Primary focus is in IT services. Can be part of a solution.

    ConsNot the employer for an individual that doesn’t welcome lots of change on the road to improvement. Self directed individuals fit best in the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunication is key. Better to overdo it than leave people in the dark or wondering. During periods of change most function better knowing the company’s plans, strategy, successes and challenges.

    Beware

    Associate Practice Director (Former Employee) Richardson, TX

    ProsThe consultants were good, and great to work with. They can place you into a client, and you can gain a lot of skill very quick. Fujitsu Consulting is a large firm, and if you like to travel, then you can have a placement just about anywhere. If you can attach yourself to a large strategic project, then your resume will look rand. I would leverage Fujitsu Consulting as a place-holder to put onto your resume.

    ConsI worked within the MS Practice, and it was managed very poorly. Within the MS Practice there was complete turnover from management. Fujitsu is growing the MS Practice by acquisition, and integrating them poorly. They change the corresponding culture of those firms, into one of staffing, japanese style. In you are on the bench, then you need to be aware. They state that they will keep you on the bench for a period of time, but will only support it based on % budget available to keep people on the bench. The Sr. Management looks at consultants as inventory, rather than people.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook for strategic long-term projects, rather than just a staffing person.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
