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

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities for career growth and the people there are GREAT! This is a GREAT place to work.

    Cons

    so many processes and bureaucracy. Doing an expense report takes FOREVER. For a technology company, they do not empower their employees with great technology.....

    Advice to Management

    Build a system to support 1)Mastery 2)Autonomy 3)Purpose. We have OLD technology internally and look silly trying to sell cutting age next generation software, hardware and services when we have OLD clunky laptops, our network is slower than Christmas and we use a way of connecting to a VPN that was established in the 90's. Get with the program! invest in the company making systems more efficient. I spend more time on expense reports than it is worth.... this should be simple.

    Pros

    Being in the field you are not locked inside a building. I enjoy working at the customer's site, retail, and building a relationship with the store's manager. The other techs in the area are helpful when needed. The company has its own National Tech Support which is beneficial when coming across an unusual problem. The strength of the company is the worker bee's, the one who actually are doing the work to ensure the company survives. Benefits are average.

    Cons

    Too much management in comparison to actual workers. Field Managers do not manage employees; they manage reports. Management cares about making the 'numbers' look better. Unfortunately many times these better numbers translate into lower profits. The pay structure is out of whack. Older employees make about 50% more than employees hired in the past 5 years. Some techs make twice the pay and do less than 1/2 the work. Low level managers make 3-4 times what the new employees make. In the 4 years I've been here there have been 3 periods of layoffs. The company is shrinking in size yearly. Very little communication from the current manager and essentially no praise when going out the way to please a customer.

    Advice to Management

    Cut back on middle/upper management or at least replace them. The company is going downhill with them. Create an environment where employees will offer suggestions to help make Fujitsu what it should be. Evaluate the pay structure so that it is fair to everyone. Phase it in over a period of years so that everyone will know where they'll be at that point.
