    OK-ish but it is time to change and adapt

    Solutions Architect (Current Employee) Bracknell, England

    ProsVery good hardware ranges
    Occasional technical training
    Good pension
    Amazing people

    Cons-Lower than market rate salary
    -Unfair 1-2-1 performance reviews
    -Non-stop re-organisations
    -Management do wrong financial forecast at the beginning of the year then later realising it was unreal start cutting corners saying we are in lost. As a result all the budget gets slashed.
    -Whole performance review is based on peer feedbacks and managers are desperate to downgrade your performance because they have been told that exceptional performance is unrealistic thing to obtain. If you have say 10 team objectives and a particular piece of work can only satisfy 7 of them you will be forced to take it, but then at the end of the year you will be blamed on performance review for not meeting the remaining 3 items. This is unfair because it is not employee's fault that he/she was not given a proper work. By other word if you are CSA3 and doing CSA2 piece of work due to absence of CSA3 related work then even if you do it exceptionally you will not be able to obtain exceptional performance. Moreover the whole performance review process is uncontrolled and manager chose not to honour any high mark to employees because they do not want to be grilled by backing them up later in front of their managers. Although there are procedure to follow nobody follow them.
    -There are no or a very few company provided labs for architects to build their solutions which leads to multiple rework/project failures
    -Instead of saying "follow/stick to the procedures" managers says "cover your back".
    -You are just a body/number for your management

    Not a bad company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsFriendly work environment
    Relaxed depending on contract
    Opportunities for the lucky ones
    Great for getting your foot in the IT industry

    ConsSometimes management are unable to make decisions and issues are left in limbo.

    Fujitsu is a very process heavy company and this can cause a great deal of issues. If a user is experiencing a problem, rather than straight up fixing an issue if there is very little to no impact the company will choose to insist on following process causing a delay to the user.

    Pay is terrible compared to other companies. They do not offer a competitive salary.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDevelop your staff and give them a reason to want to stay within the company. I understand you need frontline staff to stay frontline, but give them a chance to take on a little more responsibility if they choose and ensure to reward them. Give them a chance to experience a feeling of self satisfaction at the end of the day.

    Not the worse but not the best

    Senior Installation Engineer and Commisioner (Former Employee) Solihull, England

    ProsGood salaries
    Left to complete your work
    Varied tasks on each install

    ConsComplete inept supervisors
    Was once asked to drive from Llandudno to Skegnees to deliver a cable that was 3 meters long on a Saturday. Would have cost over ££250 in wages plus fuel. Put it in an envelope and posted guaranteed Next Day delivery for £6

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the workers, not the guys covering their own arses

    Telecoms test engineer internship

    Test Analyst (Former Employee) Birmingham, England

    ProsPlenty of freedom, developed some interesting test tools, and got exposure to commercial software development

    ConsLocated in middle of nowhere, the business park is not an ideal place for an internship as you will need a car

    Fujitsu UK&I

    Programmer Manager (Current Employee) London, England

    ProsSome great people, pockets of real capability/expertise and also passion/ownership.
    Culture is slightly too laissez-faire, but better than some other large SIs.
    Pay/packages are not as bad as many people seem to think (usually those with less experience of working for some of the other large SIs), but recent loss of final salary pension and no pay awards have obviously been tough and unpopular.

    ConsToo many senior people who don't understand the systems integration/outsourcing business, never mind just the desktop and service desk type work we tend to try and go for.
    Far too many people who simply don't care, do as little as possible, who wouldn't understand "ownership" if it bit them, and who never seem to suffer for it.
    Company policies on working from home, and working in "fragments" all over the place, mean that people can "hide" successfully for long/frequent periods.
    Poor adherence to any kind of process (I hate bureaucracy but sometimes it's just chaos).
    Lack of investment in internal systems - leading to huge internal inefficiencies.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDe-layer, and get rid of some (many) of the senior and/or low ability/aptitude people that are "tied in" because of their long service.
    Sort out the operational model (confused, confusing and deliberately used by many to avoid accountability).
    Fix the "home-working" culture that is damaging our capability and productivity (because people simply disappear for large sections of the day/week).
    Make people properly accountable.

    bottom-up culture

    Account Executive (Current Employee) Tokyo (Japan)

    Prosmany opportunities to grow . boss really give chances to freely control your job.
    no competition, seniors hep junior kindly

    Consso many hierarchy levels that makes decision process very slow. top people dont actually grasp the whole pictures , so they cant help to decide the strategy!!
    too big so there are many no-added-value tasks to proceed inside!

    Advice to Senior Managementhave some vision and lead !
