Frustration awaits all ye who enter here

Systems Engineer (Current Employee)
Sydney

I have been working at Fujitsu

ProsThe pay is pretty good.
You get left alone to do your work for the most part.
They are pretty good at approving leave.

Consendless phone meetings that go nowhere and accomplish nothing.
constant internal restructures.
no budget to improve anything.
total lack of processes in regards to doing anything.
no documentation for any internal systems.

Advice to Senior ManagementDrop everything and sort out a document management system. Using a file share is stupid.
You need to get processes in place, document them, and then start following them, and this should be a top priority.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Business was not stable enough to keep staff

Customer Service Engineer (Former Employee)
Portland, ME (US)

I worked at Fujitsu full-time for more than 3 years

ProsVaried experiences, something new every day. With the wide range of customers you could find yourself working on a large base of technology both new and old.

ConsLow Compensation, Quick to change staffing levels as customer base was not solid. There wasn't much communication on what the company was doing except communication with your direct supervisor.

Advice to Senior ManagementWork on maintaining staff levels to avoid layoffs/turnover

Staff are extremely nice and innovation is encouraged. A pleasure to work for

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

I have been working at Fujitsu as a contractor for less than a year

ProsCollaborative and friendly working environment. There are no big ego's, all staff from intern to director level engage with each other and share ideas. Internal applications are encouraged for open positions. Good career growth opportunities

ConsAs with any globally known company, Fujitsu has a reputation to uphold so it can be difficult to get traction for an idea if there is any perceived risk that could damage that rep. Internally, there's a lot of red tape.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you are doing. A new management team has been installed at my location and so far they have performed extremely well.

Not what you'd expect from a Global Company

SCO (Current Employee)

I have been working at Fujitsu full-time for more than 3 years

ProsPeople who work in my department are great and have a great out look on life.
Team works well under pressure and works well together

ConsNot organised at all, company doesn't have any skills for integrating new staff.
Training is not provided in most cases and on going assessments do not happen. In 4 years of working here myself and many others in our department have not had 121's.
Yearly objectives are often published in the 4thQ and are not SMART.
Pay is is not balanced, it is not based on skill or ability, you can all be doing the same role, but pay can be to £5000 difference between members of the same team.
Team members appraises are biased and not a true reflection on the work an employee has done, managers are excepting other peoples work as evidence that other people exceeded expectations!

This probably isn't how most of Fujitsu operates, but it is certainly how my department operates.

there are no career opportunities, there are plenty of positions posted but most have already been assigned to people and the posting of the opportunity is nothing more than going through the motions and paying lip service.

Work and Life balance?
Our Team has had people leave on long term sick and maternity, too which no additional staff were employed to cover these hours, so the remaining team had to do 1 in 1 out weekends and longer shifts in the week to cover the hours and the work load.
Currently we are still working every other weekend on 12 hour shifts.

Management
Office management:
 weak skill base no people skills and are just a waste of money we have more managers on our floor than we have staff and each of those managers have at least 2 team leaders.

If you want to reduce costs thats where you should start!

I wouldn't recommend as an employer to a friend as I would like to keep my friends

Advice to Senior ManagementThere needs to be better organisation across the company, we certainly need to become more IT based after all we should practice what we preach.
Staff need to be motivated by targets that have company benefits as well as employee benefits, setting the bar too high results in a lack of motivation across employees.

Pay needs to reflect employees skills and attributes, not based on a line managers opinion.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Upper Management Does not Care for the well being of Dallas employees

Systems Engineer (Current Employee)
Dallas, TX (US)

I have been working at Fujitsu full-time for more than a year

ProsThe pay is good and the building was recently updated. The parking is good and the location is good for someone looking in the North Dallas area.

ConsUpper management does not care if someone decides to leave the company. The turnover is very high and work life balance is very poor.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake a decision on what the plans are for the Dallas Waterview location.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
