    I worked at Fujitsu full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great varied work, great people

    Cons

    Too much pressure to keep utilisation rates high, hit performance targets and all while several rounds of redundancies were going on. Demoralising.

    Advice to Management

    Worked there 8 years and never progressed past the level I was recruited on, despite hitting all my performance targets, every year. Not very meritocratic culture. Promotions seemed to be budget constrained and based on the tiny upper end of a bell curve (in which the average person met all expectations) rather than being based on who deserved it and had earned it. Left for career advancement.

    I have been working at Fujitsu full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Joined on Grad scheme - start of my career with a major company
    work/life balance is good with opportunity to work from home
    Great people to directly work with

    Cons

    Up for redundancy when still on the grad scheme is inexcusable and should not be hiring junior people.
    micro management from senior members fed down the chain makes you feel small and incapable.

    Advice to Management

    less micro management and more trust in your employees. Future looks bleak.

    Pros

    Good working environment and colleagues. Was there over 16 years, in various offices across the country.

    Cons

    Career progression is either full on or you are dropped off the radar. There seems no place for someone who enjoys doung their work and doing it well but not wanting to become the next head of or move to another part of the world.

    Advice to Management

    Define your strategy and communicate it quickly. Moving jobs abroad is a not great for morale and UK where Fujitsu has always had a strong service delivery record.

    I have been working at Fujitsu full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Majority of the people I have worked with at Fujitsu are really understanding and willing to help and there is often a team environment.
    Large company so always opportunity to move internally.
    Pension scheme very good.

    Cons

    Awful communication from management, redundancy programmes every few years which are dealt with appallingly by management with no real clue of what the desired outcome should be, with the main focus to cut costs wherever possible.
    Senior Management are disconnected and are not trustworthy,
    Internal moves do not increase salary, only experience.
    Systems in use by the company are not fit for purpose, there are too many systems in place too, though this has improved over the past couple of years.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication and transparency with your staff is required, as well as supporting the staff and motivating them at times, though appreciate this needs to come from above as well.

    I have been working at Fujitsu full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Friendly work colleagues, social culture.

    Local management aren't too bad ... good eggs, and some bad ones, but overall not bad.

    Good spirit in the teams.

    Cons

    Management cuts have cut too deep this time ... they're casting aside long service employees, who've been loyal for years, all for the sake of profit.

    All the potential and expertise is being made redundant, or disposed of (under the guise of TUPE), and it will be a far poorer place for it.

    Advice to Management

    Reward loyalty, take the brightest with you, not dispose of them due to their cost. Your loss is somebody else's gain.

    I have been working at Fujitsu full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This is a company with some great facilities and amenities (even access to a gym at work). Being a multinational implementing agile principles and various career pathways it is a good place for growth.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, everything at Fujitsu at the moment is looking gloomy as the management intends to cut down on cost via redundancy plans on it's human resources which affect at least 2000 employees in UK where I work for.

    Advice to Management

    Stop ruining the company's image with those budget cuts. This is not the way to evolve but it's definitely the way to become a 2nd class player on the market.

    I worked at Fujitsu full-time

    Pros

    Flexible time and the office space was nice. I worked with some nice people I am still friends with today.

    Cons

    Pay was different depending on the person and not necessarily in the skill set or work ethic which was disappointing. Also the atmosphere was bleak.
