Company with great, but untapped potential
Solution Architect (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – December 16, 2013
Fujitsu is a great employer sitting on a tonne of potential if their management can just get their act together. They are the 3rd or 4th largest IT organization in the world but employees are regularly frustrated that aligning all Fujitsu capabilities to make them a true successful contender outside Japan seems elusive.
Although they claim Japanese values, it is difficult to say that these values (e.g. focus on the customer - not the quarter) are regularly practiced.
Their salaries are aligned with the industry, but with overhead and structural issues, Fujitsu remains an expensive proposition for clients. You can jump immediately to sold opportunities but I also saw a lot of top tier people sitting for extended periods of time on the bench. Their sales organization needs improvement.
regular training, solid international organization, good product offerings (if you can get to them).
some degree of dysfunction across business units, high overhead costs, lack of overall organization alignment.
