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

    Pros

    Have a deep understanding for some software application and at the same time, working in a team is a great experience.

    Cons

    The job itself is challenging sometimes, but there is always someone could solve your problems. Also since it is a Japanese Company, a low level of Japanese skills is beneficial.

    Pros

    I wouldn't recommend this organization to any friends or business partners. The lack in synergy and professionalism is too great. It would be too great of a slip in standards provide any positive feedback.

    Cons

    Organization as a whole is poorly integrated. Though the company touts itself to be a global organization, each country independently runs itself, therefore a lacks synergy. Management within is horrible and poorly recruited or promoted. They provide little if any directions and expect others to drive towards a "goal". More words are said than the actions taken.
    Work life balance all depends. If you're placed at client's site, you're in for an experience. If you're placed in corporate, then life's plush and grand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to manage.

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

    Pros

    Being an outsourcing company for a company in Japan, there's always new things to learn and new challenges to conquer. The monetary benefits are great and its quite easy to apply for leaves, though its sometimes abused by employees.

    Cons

    Employees' career growth is not the focus of this company, typical of a Japanese company. Though there are exceptions especially when you're on the good side of your managers and supervisors, typical of a company in the Philippines. Lots of under-performing who are given endless chances because they'd rather keep a rotten tomato than lose it. Again, typical of a company/business in the Philippines.

    And being typical of an outsourced company, clients don't trust right away and they'd think twice of training staffs to perform projects. It can't be helped when its common in the Philippines for incompetent people to be hired in crucial positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus not only on the employees' financial gains and benefits. Though most would prefer getting paid while not working and learning much, there are truly exceptional employees who want more than just a paid job.

    Pros

    Great people with mostly good athmosphere. Good health medical support for employers.

    Cons

    Individuals are not appreciated but the processes and people who like to kiss their bosses. Do not tell different opinion openly, you will be ended up to the "black list".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More open organisation.

    I worked at Fujitsu full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    They paid you money.

    Since leaving them my life, health, relationships and my stress levels have improved. Leaving Fujitsu was the best thing I've ever done.

    Cons

    Everything you do is watched, criticise and ripped apart. Dont bother coming up with ideas on how to improve things. You'll be shot down right away or left to linger in middle management ether of impotence for an age.

    To Fujitsu you are nothing more than a resource to be consumed and discarded when you've got no more to give.

    They've developed a set of 'KPI' in such a way that it is impossible not to fail. Thus preventing you from ever getting a salary raise of any substance.

    The upper management love to come and make promises to goals and successes. But those plebs on the front line never see any of it.

    What amazes me is the fact that every single customer is paying for a shocking service that isn't designed to actually fix anything. But rather to maintain the status-quo. Neither improving or getting worse. That way they can milk their government contracted cash cow for all its worth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of all the utterly pointless managers that clog up your ability to do anything of substance.

    Actually fix things, rather than just playing lip service.

    Actually DO what people advise you to do, rather than just ignoring them.

    People aren't resources to be consumed, try actually seeing them that way.
