    I worked at FPT Software full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are some really great people there.

    Cons

    The FUSA-CEO is not someone who actually cares about this employees. He brings tons of people over from Vietnam on H1B Visa's and promises them big money and or Green-card. Most all that are brought over are in no way qualified to do what they are asked to. The titles on the Visa do not match up with the work given to them. The CEO is very sneaky and demeaning to employees. He has the Vietnamese people work late into the night and be there early in the morning while he stays home or goes on trips. It would be a great place to work if the CEO of FUSA was gone and the money blown was spent on bringing in real clients that would bring big profit to FPT. The HR department is made up of all Vietnamese women brought over on H1B visa's. They have NO experience with American laws, rules and regulations. Be very aware before working there.

    Advice to Management

    Fire FUSA CEO - Richardson Office CEO needs to be fired and bring someone in who has real management skills and a desire to make things better not worse.

    We regret that this former employee did not provide a more reasonable review of FPT USA. We note that he or she worked at the company for less than a year, and believe that a longer tenure could have... More

    I worked at FPT Software full-time

    Pros

    Biggest company in size and revenue in Vietnam
    Has locations in many different places in the world including US, Germany, Japan, ...
    Has a lot of different projects with different skills that you can participate to earn experience

    Cons

    Terrible benefits and not very much consider about their employees at all.
    Management and managers are jokes. Most of them are not very sure what they are doing. Some of them are there because they have long history working for the company.
    FPT USA is terrible. People come and go. No local people really wants to stick and working with these guys here.
    They flight tons of people from Vietnam to US on H1B or L1. They forces them to work long hours with minimum wage (60k or something like that) with a promise to their Green Card some day.
    While some of them are talents, the majority has poor English level and they are there just to serve their time.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on benefits for your people. If you want to dream big, you can not do it without good talents. Fire CEO. Get someone capable.

    Pros

    I was at FPT USA. Nice coworkers

    Cons

    Low pay, extremely long hours, abusive boss. It is basically an outsourcing sweatshop where the employees are brought from Vietnam and are tied to the company with an H1B visa. They work weekends and up to 12+ hours a day without any thanks or any recognition from upper management!

    Very few Americans work there as there are much better work condition elsewhere and they end up leaving

    Advice to Management

    If you do business in the US, treat employees like in the US

    Pros

    Only pro would be some people get to work from home.

    Cons

    CEO of FUSA is set in his own ways, does not care about his employees except his own pocket. Won't give bonuses but will throw large high dollar parties. Unless your are Vietnamese he wont think highly of you or think of you at all. I highly recommend thinking twice before applying

    Advice to Management

    Fire your FUSA CEO.
