    I worked at Fujitsu full-time (more than an 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.

    IT department in shambles after new CFO took over

    Current Employee - Senior Manager in Sunnyvale, CA (US)

    I have been working at Fujitsu full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Unfortunately, the collaborative environment of the past has evaporated, so there is no positives left in Sunnyvale office.

    Cons

    After the new CFO took over, the IT department (which rolls up under her) has become divisive and toxic to work in. Several smart employees have left and many others have been sidelined by her and her inner circle of advisors. Team work and camaraderie is non existent and it gets worse by the day.

    If you are looking for a career in the tech industry in the Bay Area, there are *many* other options. Avoid Fujitsu (Fujitsu America) at all costs, especially in the CFO/IT organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If the CEO can make a bold decision and reverse his bad move of bringing back the current CFO (who has had a checkered past at other companies), maybe there is hope. The folks in the trenches work hard and will continue to work hard, but the divisiveness and political nightmares will hopefully subside and at best, go away with her.

    Current Employee - Business Analyst in Melbourne (Australia)

    I have been working at Fujitsu full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    My manager and team were great to work with. The job offered a great deal of flexibility and I liked working for a company who cares so much about sustainability and the environment.
    The job I had offered great work / life balance and my manager was flexible with my hours and work.

    Cons

    While they have a lot of good ideals, these are rarely in use on a day to day basis or employees are not encouraged to work towards these ideals. They were meant to be an ITIL company but didn't have any testing strategies or practices.
    To compound the issue all Business Analyst and Software Development roles were moved off shore (for any new positions) essentially making team work in my team much more difficult. As our team supported many different timezones a few people worked really crazy hours for not much personal benefit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more time in processes and procedures. When cost cutting, find ways to make sure that you are not breaking up teams that are working and seriously consider the benefits of moving key roles like software engineers offshore as intangible costs will erode any profit margin and will lower the moral of employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    * Implement demotions for management
    * Implement an effective 360 rating system
    * Consider being open to bringing back ex-employees to fill senior management to eradicate entitlement of promotion among middle management
