HARDWARE ENGINEER (Former Employee), Sunnyvale CA – May 15, 2013
Pros: flex hours
Cons: not enough time in the day
Always had a project plus support of customers who owned the company equipment. Attended hardware shows and was responsible for running demo and providing technical information. Attended classes on storgae foundation cluster file systems, fiber channel switch administration, Solaris systems administration, and UNIX System Administration. Worked well – more... with co-workers and shared information on what we had learned. Hardest part of the job was trying to stay pro active for the customer, to see problems before they do. Getting that big order after doing the pre sales engineering support – less
a typical day at work: production work ( 1per hour) what you learned: more about fujitsu laptops, hardware and software management: was great. your co-workers: are easy goin and easy to work with. the hardest part of the job. I didnt have any issue with fujitsu the most enjoyable part of the job: just time to do something that i like doing
Good intentions, good technologies, poor follow through
Director, Business Development (Former Employee), New York, NY – April 23, 2013
Pros: technologies and success from parent company in japan
Cons: senior management not properly monitoring activites at the levels directly beneath them
In the US, senior management is a mixture of good and bad. Former long-time managers from previous separate Fujitsu companies were generally solid veterans and good leaders; new leadership that constantly changes does not provide the leadership needed for already defined strategic direction.
WebSphere Administrator (Current Employee), Nashville, TN – April 2, 2013
It is a top three consulting company with good Culture values, Management, It is a fun place to work and work life was good. Since I am a contractor to the Fujitsu my project is going to end in April according to the agreements exchanged by my employer.
Sr. Business Analyst (Current Employee), New York, NY – January 28, 2013
Pros: work from home, nice people
Cons: long hours, minimal pay
Its a decent place to work if you like traveling and long hours. You do get to work from home from time to time but if you're on a client full time prepare for extremely long hours for minimal pay, promotions and bonus are hard to come by, plus there is a caveat attached...You must remain with the company for a certain amount of time or pay it back.
Consultant (Former Employee), Richardson, TX – January 8, 2013
Pros: low traffic area -east richardson
Cons: culture, pay, hours, benefits package
This applies to FAI, not Fujitsu Networks. The environment is toxic and most managers clueless. Your efforts and best interests will never be appreciated or even considered unless they've changed. It's the culture. Women are all treated like admins and minorities demeaned. It was a sweat shop and in 2 years I never found a way to thrive in their chaos. – more... I'm amazed that there've been so few lawsuits, considering how they treat employees (like used office equipment). Fai is okay for a short term contract. Get out before they outsource or lay off. – less
They pay off anyone that makes a complaint at the same time as getting rid of them. Statistics show that they target women and minorities in their redundancy programmes, so they are the first ones to be made redundant
Job Work/Life Balance
Work for Fujitsu if you like getting laid off.
Service Desk Tech (Former Employee), Richardson, Texas – December 5, 2012
Pros: average starting pay
Cons: too many layoffs and prolong contract jobs
I got hired about two weeks ago as a Service Desk Tech. After two weeks on the job , they said they no longer needed my service. I have worked many jobs in the past, but only Fujitsu lays of people after two weeks on the job. This company hires only contract workers and lays them off after the contract expires. Most the workers that I worked at Fujitsu – more... were contract workers with no benefits. I do not recommend this company to anyone – less
Service Desk Coordinator (Former Employee), Richardson, TX – October 26, 2012
Pros: contractors and employees are very professional and knowledgable and easy to work with.
Cons: often required to work over-time with no compensation.
Fujitsu prefers to use contractors and does not have a work-to-hire program. Contractors do not enjoy any benefits while working at Fujitsu (no health/retirment insurance and no vacations). Most contractors have been at Fujitsu for 3 more years before the company considers hiring them full time. Most contractors do not last one year at the company. – more... Once an employee is hired full-time, there are good company benefits, but the odds are not good for any one contractor being hired full-time.
Fujitsu is also developing a reputation for releasing contractors without warning. Even with good performance reviews, a contractor cannot be certain of how his/her performance is perceived by management. Fujitsu management has released many contractors without giving any notice either verbal or written regarding job performance and without giving the contractor opportunity to improve real or imagined deficiencies. – less
Cons: hours/shifts constantly changing, and a 10 cent raise every year
Well my day start with me making sure my E.S.D is working properly. Log into Oracel, and then onto the Fujitsu support website. Then I check all my inventory, and make sure everything is there, and match the paper work. Proceed to do my diagnostic test on the unit, and repair all neccessary work needed too be done. Clean the unit, check, and check off – more... the list too meet all Quality satification. I learn alot about Fujitsu laptop, drivers, hardware, and software issue through troubleshooting. The most enjoyable part of the job was my break. – less
It was a nice place to work and benefits were great. Hated to leave.
