    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.

    Pros

    Fujitsu are a good company for taking on people with limited experience or qualifications. If you're willing to start at the bottom and work your way up this is a good place to start.

    Cons

    The pay is by par below the market average, the justification for the pay scale at the low roles is you do not need previous experience or qualifications, however as you move up the company you need to evidence everything you do, if you do have the experience and qualifications then you won't be considered for the role (just like most companies) however you would therefore expect as you process the pay would reflect the market average but it falls way short thought the company, putting the previous justification of low pay into question.
    This is backed up by the high turnover of staff as people come in to the company and then leave for much more money once experience is gained.

    Advice to Management

    Realize peoples potential, look after the people that are committed and want to achieve with the company and always reward this accordingly.

    Pros

    Amazing colleagues, create an enjoyable atmosphere
    Great clients
    Most people are really helpful
    Annual performance reviews

    Cons

    Progress both in terms of roles and salary are heavily dependent on your line manager - difficult to move roles / teams without support from manager, making efforts to network and progress career difficult. (Doesn't apply to all managers as most are great!)

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees more and help them progress - otherwise likely to lose great talent time and time again.

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

    Pros

    Fujitsu hire really talented people.
    Great projects, lots of good technology. Lots of opportunity to learn new tech.
    As many people stay there of well over 10 years they are very good at supporting you on a personal level. (I raised a family whilst there).

    Cons

    Management promise career progression but unless you are in with the right people it won't happen.
    Be prepared to sit in the same job/role for many, many years.
    Lots of posters about career paths that look glossy but end up in the basement cafe behind the stairs.
    Only way to get a promotion is to leave and come back.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promising that everyone can move up the ladder, they can't.

    Pros

    Learn a lot of new tech, but this depends on the projects you work on

    Cons

    Always trying to work the margins in the end quality of the project suffers - they should have a motto do more with less

    bonus next to nothing

    you can be given the highest grade in review and still get about the same amount to somebody who only did the bare minimum amount of work

    Advice to Management

    look after good staff or else they will all leave and you will be left with the duds

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

    Pros

    Being a large organisation it offers the ability to learn and develop your professional skills. Whilst employed for 18 years I have completed 8 roles, with each move providing a promotion and the ability to stretch and meet my professional goals.

    Cons

    Being in a large organisation can be complex and difficult to navigate. Communication not always honed. Pay can always be better (but then we would all say that) and comparable to the external market the pay is fair.
