    I worked at Fujitsu full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A lot of flexibility on how to work as long as you get the job done. Management really trusted their employees with very little micromanagement. Really a great group of people and culture. I honestly wouldn’t mind to go back and work there.

    Cons

    Limited movement up since all management was on a visa rotation from Japan. Leader would be from Japan and would stay for around 3 years and then the next person from Japan would replace him; no option to apply.

    Advice to Management

    Be a little more open to change in the fast world of technology.

    I worked at Fujitsu as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I loved the intern activities and how close I got to everyone. Everyone was willing to help and listen to me.

    Cons

    Kind of traditional, but they’re working to change that.

    Advice to Management

    Break down the cubicle walls!

    I worked at Fujitsu full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I was fortunate to have a good manager out of Richardson who was mindful of my workload and the scope of my projects, which made it easy to balance my work and home time.

    Cons

    Not all managers care about work/life balance. Communication between divisions and department levels is minimal and causes many issues when trying to implement new processes or improvements. Transferring within the company is almost never done, this is due to preconceived notions about people from certain divisions and poor management communication.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is key, there is too much bureaucracy/red-tape that is holding Fujitsu America back. There are a lot of ideas with little follow through, as most people are using Fujitsu as a stepping stone to a better place - another company on the resume - rather than looking to stay with Fujitsu because of the lack of growth and poor communication. Your current management in place seems like they are more "followers" rather than "Leaders", and Fujitsu needs more leadership to ensure they get a seat at the table.

    I worked at Fujitsu full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Japanese products are incredible. Behind in the marketplace with go to market strategy and structure, but documentation is exceptional for customers. Could be a perfect partner for large FSI Partners.

    Cons

    Great people, but near sited, not strategic more tactical, the team has ADD. Not structure, no assistance for sales, short ramp time, UK Services Sales Model used here in the US which isn't working. Great products with no go to market strategy for the Defense Teams. Fujitsu companies selling the same products against one another and hiding through reseller partners. Cannot solve problems you identify. Cannot support the customer, slow to respond to requests.

    Advice to Management

    Burocratic environment, dishonest management.
    Slow to pay commissions.

    Great knowledgeable people.
    Good salary coming in the door
    Fair management style.

    Cons

    Overworked - People are eliminated and not replaced.

    Replace people that leave or are let go.
    Take care of your long time employees. Don't limit their salary increases the same way you do with someone you brought in a year ago for a lot higher salary.
