I have been working at Fusion Systems Japan

Pros

Fusion as a small IT services company allows employees to work with the entire gamut of technology.

Pay is commensurate larger companies if you negotiate it right.

Cons

There is a lot of internal friction going on within Fusion. Management being very divisive, etc.

Management has no concept of the technology it sells.

The consultants skillset is rather poor at Fusion. Some systems they develop for customers were not functional.

Fusion is extremely busy and there were many projects falling apart due to poor management and high employee turnover. As a senior consultant you will be asked to take over some of these projects only to find that they are undocumented, underbid, and un-salvageable.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Re-training and ongoing training for management.

Foster a better internal environment; bonding; teamwork; etc.

Document projects better especially if the high turnover at Fusion continues. Even adhoc documentation is effective when handing over projects to new consultants.

    Pros

    Great place to be involved in development work for the finance community and gain experience with development for the low latency markets. Environment is beneficial for gaining experience and getting hired directly by the banks and clients that they have.

    Cons

    Managing partners of the company could be likened to a circus act, where-in every day, and project, they beat their chests and try to come out on top. There is no interest in working together except for financial gain and back stabbing is so common place, everyone is guarded and unwilling to step forward.
    Employees are viewed as commodities, and treated even more poorly.
    The sales team is so poor at their job, the company has to rely on their President and his relationship with the business community to drive in new business.
    Can't retain quality employees due to all of the above.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in employee's.
    Bring in people that can do the work, not because they are cheap, but because they have ability.
    Bring in a sales manager that can sell and provide incentives that the employees can use, as opposed to something not real and that will never materialize.

    Pros

    Good environment to learn about new technologies. There are a handful of good people but they are saddled down by Partner B.S. Plenty of time to surf the net.
    With lots of free time there is an opportunity to learn new technologies and methodoligies but unfortunately cant be used.
    Because of lack of resources multi-tasking is possible, exposing you to new workflows and tasks.

    Cons

    Project management is non existent. Leadership is very poor. Only a handful of good people. Draconian HR lady. Troglodyte of a sales manager with few people skills and ironically for an IT company; No IT knowledge whatsoever.
    No training schemes and internal controls means that if you are an analytical person you may be very confused by the chaos.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire professional managers to lead the company. Consider strategies not originated from the partners meetings.
