    "Supportive organisation who develop people well - weak go-to-market execution"

    I worked at Fujitsu full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    - Supportive people with "can do" attitude
    - Good EMEIA coverage, which is developing as a strategic concern
    - Portfolio based regional P&L structure gives autonomy to regions
    - Strong client base
    - Great organisation to develop your career and get cross-sector experience

    Cons

    - Weak strategy, complicated through a portfolio that is too large and a go-to-market (sectors and countries) that are too large.
    - Japan HQ do not understand western markets and complicate working environment
    - Huge focus on reorganisation to solve the companies problems
    - Over-complicated company operating model
    - Weak on offshore and limited IP, which will ultimately lead to revenue decline unless FJ embraces a major global aquisition

    Advice to Management

    - Sell the products group
    - Aquire an established $1b+ industry focussed s/w entity to bring back relevence
    - Invest and promote your technical talent, who are your No. 1 asset rather than investing in your operational managers, who lack content

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

    Pros

    I love this company because of its people. In a 39 year career, my 4 years at Fujitsu have been some of my most rewarding. Not for the salary and benefits, frankly I could (and have) earned much more elsewhere. I love it because I feels that they genuinely value their employees and want you to succeed. Opportunities are there to make an active contribution if you wish and ‘disruptors’ are welcomed

    Cons

    In an increasingly digitised marketplace Fujitsu are struggling to hold their place in the market and are having a bit of a mid life crisis. We must evolve or risk going the way of Nokia etc.... we still have outdated practices and processes that conflict with the new paradigm and that causes disconnects and discomfort especially where there are multiple change initiatives going on across the EMEIA region. Finding clear guidance on the overcomplex go to market offerings is bewilderingly mind bogglingly frustratingly painfully difficult

    Advice to Management

    Simplify the go to market services. Do not impose bureaucratic processes on your employees that stifle creativity and crush good will. Trust us and you (and the shareholders) will be rewarded 10 fold

    I worked at Fujitsu full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    As far as it goes, I managed to get some ‘okay’ experience from the role. Although that’s about it .

    Cons

    Performance based progression. I met people who had been on the same 16K wage for 9 years.

    The training I needed for the next role up was denied to me, even though I had some of the highest stats on the service desk?

    The person being put toward the role was friends with the manager outside of the office. Brown nose

    I met some genuinely talented and gifted people but because they didn’t scratch management’s back, they were denied progression.

    I met people who were sour and bitter, ready to push people under the bus, who were then rewarded because they were pals outside of the office.

    Advice to Management

    Notice the talent, stop being blind to the brown nosing (I don’t think you are blind to it, however)

    Oh... and I know that you copy and pasted my employee of the month from someone else’s. Half effort attempt.

    I have been working at Fujitsu full-time

    Pros

    If you are lucky and get to work on a big deal you can do well. You need to be in the Senior Clique generally to do well. Comp and benefits are good but you need to negotiate well when you join as pay rises have been poor for the last few years.

    Cons

    Targets seem to be a moveable feast from year to year with little link to individual opportunity/sector. You only get paid if above 50% of threshold which creates a bizarre effect in the second half of the year when people either realize they won't get there and either sandbag deals for the following year, pass them over to someone else who will hit threshold and hope they can agree a brown paper bag deal or accept that they won't get paid a bonus and start looking for a new job either internally or externally. Huge sales turnover at the moment so suffering from corporate memory failure. Last 2 years 'Transformation' has been hugely disruptive and many senior leadership roles are vacant (UK MD) or have interim post holders not empowered to take the tough decisions. All exacerbated by very cautious/conservative Japanese Parent company.

    Advice to Management

    Make your mind up about how you want to organise your sales teams. Set some realistic targets and other KPI's at the beginning of the year not 1/3rd of the way through.
    Get some serious Sales Directors who understand their industry sectors, are credible in front of customers, inspire their teams and turn up for work more than 3 days a week. Stop hiring people with IT infrastructure backgrounds - you have enough of them already. The new world is about solving business issues. Reinvigorate the Sales culture, there is no buzz or passion at the moment, it all feels pretty stale.
