Advice to Management

Resign. When you take in driven, motivated people who are interested in doing good work and place them in an environment where they have to deal with colleagues and supervisors gossiping about their personal life and badmouthing them behind their backs, morale is sure to suffer. Add to that the fact that career progression seems to often be held back by office politics and that higher management would rather often hire someone from outside than give an active employee the opportunity to climb up and you have a recipe for disaster, especially considering that other companies offer considerably higher salaries for the same kind of work. People might be willing to work an entry level job for comparatively less as long as they feel there is the possibility of progression, but when they keep getting shut down by biased parties despite delivering consistently good performance, then they will be sure to start looking for other alternatives. It does not help that people are too often selected for promotion based not on competence but on who they are friends with, or simply on nationality. Career progression is nearly impossible for foreigners in many departments. More competent candidates are consistently harmed either by not being given the dates of the assessments with enough time in advance to prepare for them, or having those assessments scheduled right after strenuous work, with no time to rest beforehand. Other than the fact that a considerable amount of supporting and management staff enjoy gossip and interfering other people's personal life, there are also inappropriate and downright criminal behaviors taking place at some departments, such as xenophobic attitudes (both from customers and from Fujitsu staff), inappropriate conversations being held in the workplace in front of everyone and sexual harassment, all of which have been reported to management and HR and are consistently ignored. Supervisors and managers in some departments are also known for ignoring and mistreating foreigners - from consistently trying to deny them opportunities for advancement to giving them the worst shifts or trying to force them to constantly change scheduling arrangements for the benefit of the local favorites, or even screaming loudly at them in the middle of the workplace and using demeaning language. Never before in my life have I seen people behaving this way in the workplace, especially at a multinational company. There are also cases where supervisors try to force first line agents to work seven days in a row or ignore the mandatory rest times between shifts as per Polish labor law. Other times, employees who refuse this inappropriate treatment are singled out for retaliation, mobbing, harassment and false disciplinary claims in an attempt to intimidate them. The Fujitsu Way is Omerta. It is nearly impossible for bad employees to get fired, and they are often promoted as a way of getting rid of them. Competent and committed employees are frequently ignored. Several projects have people in positions of responsibility who want to do the bare minimum and treat people actually interested in working with disdain and hostility. As long as the service level agreements are met and the customers are happy, no action is taken. Equipment is frequently shoddy, badly maintained and there is an absolute lack of interest by many supervisors in providing tools and access rights that are required for basic daily tasks. It can take months for simple repairs to be performed since the onsite technicians are chronically understaffed and don't care at all. Some internal resolver groups are known for ignoring high priority service disruptions for days on end. In the same vein, the HR department is frankly dishonest and incompetent, often taking an eternity to update employee data, misplacing important documents or not filing them at all, especially when dealing with visas and recruitment initiatives where an existing employee is supposedly eligible for a bonus by introducing a new potential recruit. Anyone reporting instances of inappropriate behavior to HR also only end up making themselves a target for further retaliation or being completely ignored. All of these issues were previously reported and no action was taken. One other employee who was the victim of sexual harassment was not only ignored for months but also basically told something along the lines of "we spoke to the person and it only happened once, so what's the problem?" This is patently false as the perpetrator has done this to several people. Not only has this criminal kept their job but they were actually rewarded with a promotion.
