    Pros

    Great technology company and very strategic focus

    Cons

    Sometimes too much micromanaged from Japan. The leadership needs t allow domestic North American leadership manage the business.

    The Japanese culture sometimes interferes with the day to day operations that impede with the ability of local American leadership to maximize the operating efficiency and thus margins.

    I worked at Fujitsu full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good work life balance.
    2 weeks shutdown at the end of the year giving some time to relax and de-stress.
    Decent benefits and 401k match.
    Decent Japanese food served in their cafeteria.

    Cons

    Highly confused management team leading to a finger-pointing and poorly managed work environment.
    De-motivated employees who are looking to exit the company but unable to do so as the poor work environment has sucked out their inner confidence to do so.
    No stock options and below market compensation.
    Extremely difficult to innovate or to perform in your job as you will need to get several approvals before your project will be green lighted.
    Very very slow work environment that does not enourage innovation and will render you useless if you put in more years into this company.
    Highly political and back stabbing is rampant throughout the organization even by your own peers and boss.
    Management does not communicate to the employees and is not transparent with what's going on leading to high levels of distrust.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate transparently to your employees and don't play hide and seek with them.
    Align the management team first on a common vision and then expect your employees to be more productive.
    Encourage our employees to take more risks and understand that there will be some failures - eliminate the finger pointing culture you have today as it will kill innovation.

    Pros

    Good Pay, Good benefits, steady work

    Cons

    Was a great place to work. The environment is now hostile. It has caused a large turnover in personnel at all levels. Experienced Field Engineers are leaving and new Field Engineers last less than an year before leaving.

    Advice to Management

    Field Engineers are not factory workers, you cannot successfully micromanage remote Field Engineers.

    Pros

    Decent Pay, good 401k plan, reasonable holiday hours

    Cons

    only selected group of managers who’ve spent their entire life working in this company acts as a block against any attempt to bring innovation to the organization. Newcomers at any level are viewed with suspicion and any idea they bring with them from the outside is treated with a mixture of fear and contempt. I was accused of providing wrong data based on their own manual but because of the relationship with the big manager and old people who screwed up the manual and commutations processes, there was extra work to prevent mysef from getting fired. In the end, they all realized they were incorrect but came up with some lame excuse. I dont expect an apology from big bosses but really? I wish all the big manager would have behaved in a professional manner, not personal. Just because you like someone does not mean everything they do is right.

    Advice to Management

    The CEO needs to seriously look into this culture , and replaces MANY old guard with new, professional management if this company is to succeed in the long run.

    Pros

    Decent pay
    Very easy/little skill set required
    No boss breathing down your neck, very autonomous.
    You sit at home getting paid sometimes

    Cons

    Can be very busy because it's a little understaffed
    Not the best training/guidance, they expect a lot of you but if you can handle it and learn it's a very easy job.

    Advice to Management

    Get more staff, offer more training, and find ways for FEs to move up because opportunities are super rare.
