Not a bad company

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Not the worse but not the best

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

I worked at Fujitsu as a contractor for more than 3 years

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

Good on the whole but lacking direction towards the end

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Fujitsu full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGreat people, some good ideas but struggling to get out of their core market

ConsBig company culture and a very unfriendly approach to people

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the guys doing the work rather than the managers in between

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

Telecoms test engineer internship

Test Analyst (Former Employee)
Birmingham, England

I worked at Fujitsu as an intern for less than a year

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

I have been working at Fujitsu

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.

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

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

Platinum Level Consultant

Platinum Level Consultant (Current Employee)

I have been working at Fujitsu full-time

ProsIndependence and ability to work your own career. Very little management oversight. Able to write your own ticket. If you like to work directly with clients and deal one on on, then they will encourage it.

ConsYour simply a body. There is no mentoring, no career path, no benefit to the long term career minded consultant. The pure consulting arm isn't really sure where they want to grow and rarely can compete with other companies that keep a strong bench.

Advice to Senior ManagementHave your consultants help drive achievement and direction. They are your ONLY asset. The bench is your responsibility to help

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
