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

    Pros

    Over 10 years with the company, and a great overall experience. After spending some time here. They really treat you like family. Great Insurance, and benefits. The Field service operation is top notch. Great Management that truly cares about their people.

    Cons

    Not the best paying company, but what they lack in pay, they make up for in other ways.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within before going to outside talent. Need to put more focus on paying those who perform.

    I have been working at Fujitsu full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Decent paycheck
    Gym and cafeteria are on site at FNC in Richardson
    Nice HQ in easy to access location in metroplex

    Cons

    Aging middle management has ruined this company
    All the older management don't care or try to be inventive.
    This mindset runs off all the young talent because they are huge roadblocks.
    They are now combining companies across the US to try and do cost savings, retirement offers have gone out to people.
    FAI has been an utter failure for the last ten years yet they are keeping it alive.
    They are starting to think all of IT can now suddenly be sent to the cloud and be supported by India, they couldn't be more wrong.
    It's a cluster mess, unless you need at job stay away.

    Advice to Management

    Where to begin? Your slow Japanese thinking and processes along with refusing to take risks and clean up the bad seeds has just destroyed your American market share and profits. Unfortunately nothing I type here will reverse this course you set out on 8-10 years ago. Good luck to everyone who will be impacted by this.

    I have been working at Fujitsu as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Good people / team, including Team Leads
    - Decent starting wage
    They attempt to keep employees on board if something happens with their current positions, but this does not seem to often be a lateral move (usually into a lower position)
    -Attempts at recognition of employees for jobs well done.

    Cons

    -No desire to hire anyone permanent
    -No annual reviews or opportunities for raises
    -I have been here around 2.5 years and have not seen anyone get promoted. I've seen a LOT of people moved from higher positions to lower ones, though.
    -No benefits or insurance as they keep people contract for as long as possible. I know people who have been here 4 years or longer and are still not permanent.

    Advice to Management

    Recognition and appreciation of employees in any form is nice. But if you truly appreciate your employees, give them a raise. Not a Fujitsu keychain.

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

    Pros

    The FNC Leadership team centrally located in Richardson, TX which made it less of a challenge to present, discuss, or escalate issues / concerns.

    Cons

    Way too many political agendas for the size of the company. They preach that people are their primary concern and interest, but the actions do not support their words. They are a manufacturing company first and do not want to invest in the necessary skills to become a top Services / Solutions company. There is minimal to zero employee development.

    Advice to Management

    You continue to hire bright young minds... please allow them to show you what they can accomplish their way, not your proven methodologies from 10 years ago.

    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.
