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

    Pros

    Location is convenient that's about it. Wish I could say more, but this place has minimal pros compared to other companies in Bay Area that employees actually want to work at.

    Cons

    Executive staff unfriendly, morale is low, culture is conservative, rigid not contemporary and power trips everywhere you turn. Building and office space in need of update as well- it is old structure. Change is not in the vocabulary only "do as I say" type of environment.

    Advice to Management

    Get with the times!

    Poor management changes and decisions have lost some great talent because of it. They will continue to lose money and reorg to hide the fact they are losing money. Always exuses for stifling employees!

    Advice to Management

    stabilize and lose the texas mgmt teams...go back to basics!

    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

    Friendly co-workers. There are many processes that you can learn.

    Cons

    Fujitsu America outsourced the IT team in Sunnyvale to offshore. The entire IT team was laid off in one day. The technologies are old as there is no budget to keep up with the upgrades.

    Advice to Management

    send employees for training that are relevant to their work.
