    Pros

    You can make difference. Many amazing technologies that need to be repositioned for their Business benefits.

    Cons

    Changing the culture of long tenured employees

    Advice to Management

    Share your ideas with your team and ask for their input how to improve things. Take some measured risks.

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

    Pros

    The graduate programme features excellent training for soft skills, and the graduate community as a whole is well looked after with opportunities to get involved in numerous activities outside of your role.

    Cons

    Although there are opportunities to get involved outside of your role, often it's the day job that is the shortcoming of this scheme. Some graduates have been underwhelmed with the roles they were assigned, and although there is the flexibility to rotate (although this is very much down to the individual to initiate), often this doesn't make up for the lack of fulfilling work. I also get the feeling this company doesn't operate as a meritocracy, but instead favours the employees who can shout the loudest.

    Advice to Management

    Be prepared to have roles ready for graduates upon their arrival. Often graduates are left with little to do early on, in some cases for a serious amount of time. This can be off-putting very early on.

    Pros

    Ability to learn within the company is fantastic, promoting within is a big thing and progressing can be made simple if you work for it.

    Cons

    Pay, Fujitsu pay poorly based on job roles and the current market.

    Advice to Management

    Fight for employee pay, and be harsher on cutting dead weight.

    I have been working at Fujitsu full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Trusting. Lots of different work locations if role allows. Not so competitive and most staff are decent people. Managers are decent albeit without any real power.

    Cons

    No structure to career - can stay in suspended animation for the rest of your life. Lots of buzz words like AI, IOT and Agile but really expects people to just metamorphosise into start-up characters. Always jam tomorrow, jam yesterday but never jam today - you may never get a pay rise so pray for low inflation.

    Advice to Management

    Listen. Really listen and manage people not tasks. Happy people => efficient completion of tasks.

    Pros

    It's more like a family on the shopfloor. The line manager is kind and helpful.

    Cons

    Worked there for 5 years as temporary worker and finally got a permanent job. Even if you're working hard not get promotion and the wages are lower than anywhere else.

    Advice to Management

    Should have a look at who's doing the real job and give bonuses or promotion.

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

    Pros

    Steady work until getting made redundant

    Cons

    been forced to sit on the same desk as a known bully. someone who has bullied so many people lots of people have left because of that person. Management don't care and don't want to get involved. Even a few managers bully staff in their own way by passing the right person up constantly and going to lengths to make individuals suffer on shifts they shouldn't be on.
    To be honest this is a utterly disgusting company to work for in regards to how your treated. i was bullied for 4 years with no help or support with management knowing all about it. Had a very serious and major issue happen in my personal like to do with cancer and rather than my manager support or help me i was put on a performance improvement plan because my qork quality went down unsurprisingly. just down right disgusting how they treat some people.

    Advice to Management

    start following company process on bullying and stop bully's rather than encourage and support them.
