    I have been working at Fujitsu full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities for career growth and the people there are GREAT! This is a GREAT place to work.

    Cons

    so many processes and bureaucracy. Doing an expense report takes FOREVER. For a technology company, they do not empower their employees with great technology.....

    Advice to Management

    Build a system to support 1)Mastery 2)Autonomy 3)Purpose. We have OLD technology internally and look silly trying to sell cutting age next generation software, hardware and services when we have OLD clunky laptops, our network is slower than Christmas and we use a way of connecting to a VPN that was established in the 90's. Get with the program! invest in the company making systems more efficient. I spend more time on expense reports than it is worth.... this should be simple.

    I have been working at Fujitsu full-time

    Pros

    A great company with many international headquarters, great possibilities, specially internationally

    Cons

    Spain is different, a great change is needed because we're getting older and older, if you want to work with the lastest tech maybe that's not the place right now (2017)

    Advice to Management

    wake up! cloud is here to stay , invest in I+D or we'll not survive the next 5 years.

    Fujitsu Spain needs a better work culture and a new-look company, with new ideas, other ways of management, better work-life balance.

    I worked at Fujitsu full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great varied work, great people

    Cons

    Too much pressure to keep utilisation rates high, hit performance targets and all while several rounds of redundancies were going on. Demoralising.

    Advice to Management

    Worked there 8 years and never progressed past the level I was recruited on, despite hitting all my performance targets, every year. Not very meritocratic culture. Promotions seemed to be budget constrained and based on the tiny upper end of a bell curve (in which the average person met all expectations) rather than being based on who deserved it and had earned it. Left for career advancement.

    Pros

    Good working environment and colleagues. Was there over 16 years, in various offices across the country.

    Cons

    Career progression is either full on or you are dropped off the radar. There seems no place for someone who enjoys doung their work and doing it well but not wanting to become the next head of or move to another part of the world.

    Advice to Management

    Define your strategy and communicate it quickly. Moving jobs abroad is a not great for morale and UK where Fujitsu has always had a strong service delivery record.

    I have been working at Fujitsu full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Although my role is client facing but I can work remotely. No need to face client everyday. Slow paced and easy work environment.

    Cons

    At Fujitsu, we mostly work on traditional IT. Lack of vision and strategy are visible company wide. As a solution architect, it is very frustrating to see this company does not want to engage in high tech opportunities. This company only participate in low level IT contract and engagement i.e. help desk and desktop support. Sometimes it's frustrating to see why Fujitsu needs solution architect at workplace when they participate in low level contract.

    Although Fujitsu manufactured K-computer but Fujitsu does not have any commitment to innovation. In the last few years innovation mostly down to zero level.

    As far as architecture and project management concern, there is no real architecture team to architect any infrastructure. There is no project to manage or govern although there are senior management in project management.
    Senior management is reluctant to undertake any project activities. It is probably the worse senior management I ever work with.

    Advice to Management

    You will lose client if you do not change your attitude.

    Pros

    The early days were awesome

    Cons

    The company was a train wreck. The lies they would tell and how they treated their employees was inhumane.
