    I worked at FUJIFILM North America full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice folks to work with and in general people help each other out. Even though your team can be far flung, they make an effort to keep in touch.

    Cons

    Too many layers of management, some departments were lackadaisical and unresponsive, important accounting functions were either understaffed or had high turnover..

    Advice to Management

    While Sales and Marketing are major profit centers, don't cut funding for the accounting functions too thin. Unhappy people don't care how exciting the product is when they are overworked or underpaid.

    Pros

    Challenging where change is the only constant (if you are not comfortable with change this company may not be the right fit). Great opportunity to learn about the industry if you seek training from management.

    Cons

    Although they invest heavily in R&D most of their product portfolio on the graphics side is not proprietary and makes their product line more expensive and hard to compete in the market.
    Fujifilm has a hard time adopting to new markets and cultures and this puts them at a disadvantage.
    Upper management does not seem to listen to employees that could offer solutions to problems that their employers deal with on a day to day basis.

    Advice to Management

    LISTEN to your employees for plausible solutions to challenging problems. Many times they have more awareness of the root cause and insight solutions that management is not aware of or don't take their opinions seriously as they are not part of upper management.

    Pros

    In my little world of Fujifilm I certainly enjoyed the product in its clean function in an otherwise dirty operation. I enjoyed my role as a technician repairing the support equipment and the ability to continue learning. I enjoyed my fellow employees and my bosses in their support roles and willingness to pass on knowledge. I enjoyed my customers and being able to assist them. My being able to set my schedule to best suit the customer and be efficient in use of resources for both customer and company.

    Cons

    There were no real downsides to Fujifilm other than some times overly long hours if the account required such attention. The other was the release of work orders sometimes being slow in order to aid the customer in a manner I thought timely.

    Pros

    Benefits are good. Most of the employees are nice.

    Cons

    Favorites get special treatment while other hard working dedicated employees get nothing. HR is a joke.

    Pros

    Very knowledgeable people in the business and great to hang around with. People are willing to help each other out.

    Cons

    Everything is pretty good, promotions are hard to come by. Unfortunately everything needs to be done right this moment and no time to work on it.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing

    I worked at FUJIFILM North America full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great compensation, but they'll give you anything to get you in the door. The photo chemicals are dying slowly so they will go the way of Kodak soon.

    Cons

    Very short sighted company. Led by Japan, make no mistake, nobody outside of Japan has a say in the company. You do what they ask or they sideline you.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to manage, poorly run facilities and poorly led employees are a set up for failure. Not surprised they are dissolving the NA business.
