    Still good employees left but that will change soon.

    Cons

    Promises not kept. Confusion among management. Lots of favoritism. They used to care about employees. They want to sell employee talent but now lost focus on how to treat employees fairly. No teamwork

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees. Actions speak much louder than words. Look at the talented people who are leaving.

    I worked at Fujitsu full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits and good salaries and overall good people to work with.
    The company was once one of the best companies to work for.

    Cons

    Bad upper management business decisions is taking a toll in the company's reputation and prestige. For the last five years there has been an average of one RIF per year coupled with the fact that the people that got the boot were not all based on bad performance and because of that they have lost good talented employees. I'm afraid outsourcing more than 50% of the R&D is not going to cut it.

    Advice to Management

    Really hope they get a clue that is not the products that made the company great it was the people behind the product and the culture. Stop spending huge amount of money trying to figure out how to boost up moral when the answer is right in front of your nose... build a culture that we once had and lead with a good heart and good vision.

    I worked at Fujitsu full-time

    Pros

    People come together to get work done fast. People are committed to make sure product gets delivered.

    Cons

    Old development tools and processes. Development process slow. Never make anything that's leading edge. Too conservative to take risks. Too much politics. People promoted based on connections.

    Advice to Management

    Make something that's cutting edge. Get rid of politics. Give all employees laptops, not just managers.

    Former Employee - Systems Test Engineer in Mamaroneck, NY

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

    Pros

    The work was very challenging. There were many opportunities to participate in a wide variety of disciplines, including both hardware and testing.

    Cons

    At some level, a decision was made to reduce the size of the FNC in the US. The facility in Pearl River, NY was closed.

    Advice to Management

    I hope that upper management will recognize the variety and depth of talent which was sacrificed when the Pearl River facility was closed.
