  1. "Lots of restructuring, but great learning opportunities"

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    - excellent opportunities to learn new technologies and grow within the organization, so you can always do something new on the job
    - worked with some excellent resources

    Cons

    - company is always restructuring, so a few organizational decisions made by upper management have not always made a lot of sense (ie: making operational processes a lot more complicated and expensive than they should be)
    - pay is not reflective on performance (ie: pay remains the same, despite getting a promotion)

    Advice to Management

    - upper management should have open communication with the team to evaluate the pros and cons of major changes to the organization prior to implementation (not top down communication and struggling to deal with changes after implementation)
    - ensure that all levels within the organization are rewarded for their efforts to go above and beyond to make the organization a success.


  2. "Lots of challenges"

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Some very good people in the sales/marketing side of the business.
    Marketing does a good job of trying to keep people informed.
    Global presence.
    Flexible working options.
    Pay and benefits were good.
    Good quality products (but there is a catch, see below).

    Cons

    While the products are good quality, they lack the features, range and visibility necessary to compete in North America against established global vendors (ie. HP, IBM, Dell, Oracle, etc...).

    The products are basically a "me too" and there is no significant install base outside of Japan and parts of Europe.

    No brand recognition in North America. Very limited channel presense.

    Job security is questionable but this probably depends somewhat on which side of the business you're in. Training is completely non-existant.

    No real vision for the future - this was my own opinion and was also the feedback I received from several clients. These same clients also noted that there was no good reason to switch to Fujitsu from a more established vendor.

    Marketing is non-existant (in NA) and a strategy to compete in the NA market is not clear or obvious.

    Communication from management is poor, lots of re-organization. Internal promotions are very uncommon.

    The strong focus on consulting significantly reduces the likelyhood of Fujitsu ever becomming a volume vendor in the NA hardware market.

    Advice to Management

    Marketing needs to be a priority if you want to compete in North America. Everyone knows Fujitsu in Japan, but in North America most people have never heard of it. Management needs to seriously look at how competitors market their products in NA and develop a strategy to at least match this. Look for ways to differentiate the products from the competition - "me too" products are hard to sell in north america in what is already a very competitive market.
