    Pros

    Great people, good benefits, 401K matching and generally good balance of professional and personal life.

    Cons

    Long product development cycle, lack of strategic marketing plans for product launch which weaken the ability to compete regionally and globally

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Executive Management need to step up and break out of the traditional mentality that business will always be profitable when no changes are made. There needs to be more vision, innovation and thought-leadership.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Such a big name in the market, with high quality products, vast development and good pay and work environment also

    Cons

    There was not much support for the interns. You need to do everything by yourself and as an Intern , you are expected to get help from your seniors but this was not the case with me

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to allow interns to get full time job there if they perform good. In my case, while interviewing they told me that there is no chance of full time even if you perform excellent

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

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