Thoughts from our graduates

Sid Baissa

Sid Baissa
Project Manager
Bracknell, UK

I knew that the graduate scheme had a very good reputation. But I also wanted to work at a diverse and global company with people from all kinds of different backgrounds.

What do you love about working at Fujitsu?

I've had the chance to work with different projects and teams in different areas, which has been a great learning curve. But you are also given responsibilities from day 1.

What is a typical day like for you?

I don't have a typical day – that's a good thing. My current project involves working at a client site. I am the lead PM for a project transforming WAN, LAN, WIFI & Voice in 1600 pubs, bars and restaurants in the UK.

What made you apply to Fujitsu?

I knew that the graduate scheme had a very good reputation. But I also wanted to work at a diverse and global company with people from all kinds of different backgrounds.

What training do you receive on the programme?

There's a lot of training available. I've already been on Sense and Respond, Leadership in Action, Agile Project Management, and the Creative Presenting course.

What is the company culture like?

Everyone is willing to help you and are very flexible. As long as you do your work and deliver what is expected from you, you are good.

Liz Pinder

Liz Pinder
Cyber Threat Intelligence Analyst
Warrington, UK

Having a STEM degree I wanted to work for one of the largest tech companies in the world.

What do you love about working at Fujitsu?

Fujitsu’s graduate scheme offers the chance to be challenged, to grow and be part of a global business, whilst progressing your career at the same time. They do throw you in at the deep end, but this is what I like as it gives you the chance to learn so much more.

What is a typical day like for you?

I currently work in Cyber Security, it's fast-paced and every day is different. One day I’m threat hunting, the next I’m analysing new malware. It's never monotonous. An incident can occur any time – so it's an exciting and challenging environment to work in.

What made you apply to Fujitsu?

Having a STEM degree I wanted to work for one of the largest tech companies in the world. Other than the benefits being fantastic, the cyber security graduate scheme allows you to become a specialist in one particular domain rather than learning the basics in many.

What training do you receive on the programme?

The Leadership in Action course was particularly rewarding. In terms of my everyday role, I train on the job, which I prefer, as I get exposure to high and low level projects from the very beginning.

What is the company culture like?

Extremely supportive. I had minimal experience in cyber security but my team understood and helped me as much as possible. I've also helped to organise and design a Fujitsu float for the Birmingham Pride parade for our LGBTQ+ community Fujitsu SHINE. And I ran Fujitsu’s first Girls' Day promoting young girls in STEM.

The international culture is also what I like here, collaborating across borders and working with colleagues from all over the world.

What do you love about working at Fujitsu?

Coming to the office and feeling that I have constant support from my colleagues - regardless of whether we work on the same project or in the same department. The international culture is also what I like here, collaborating across borders and working with colleagues from all over the world.

What is a typical day like for you?

I work at the Project Management Office of a large customer account as a PMO Assistant. I have a variety of tasks, but a typical day can include administration, assisting managers and working on invoicing. I also meet project teams and participate in Steering Committees where major project decisions are taken.

What made you apply to Fujitsu?

I wanted to jump into an exciting and future-oriented industry. I also wanted a company with sound values that had a global presence. Fujitsu's 2-year programme stood out because it allowed professional development in a single area as opposed to rotating through different roles.

What training do you receive on the programme?

Sense & Respond which is a twist on Lean Methodology, leadership training, self-awareness sessions focusing on personal development, and many more. On top of that, there's lots of online training available. I've attended Project Management and Microsoft Project courses, as well as increasing my IT service management knowledge by getting an ITIL Foundation certificate.

What is the company culture like?

An aspect of the company culture that I did not expect is the flexibility and control over your own work. It's an activity based office where no cubicles are allowed. Working from home once in a while is also a perk that was much appreciated when I had a long commute to the office. The company seems to value the personal development of its employees.

Charlotte Pattison

Charlotte Pattison
IT Testing Associate
Bracknell, UK

If I had to describe the company culture in one word it would be alive, because there’s always something going on, always something to get stuck into as a volunteer.

What do you love about working at Fujitsu?

I love the drive to improve not just what we do but how we do it. The idea of co-creation is a really good example. We focus on how to use our knowledge and innovation to bring value to a customer’s business.

What is a typical day like for you?

I work flexitime and tend to come in early and leave early. I tend to finish up any work I left open the day before. After that it depends on the day. Right now, I am testing STAR Rail’s Smart Enablement project, so most days I am planning and managing testing activities for a new software release as part of a DevOps team.

What made you apply to Fujitsu?

I admired Fujitsu’s dedication to community involvement and diversity and inclusion. I enjoy informing and educating young people on the possibilities they have and how to achieve their dreams, so it was important to me that Fujitsu shared those values.

What training do you receive on the programme?

I receive internationally recognised qualification in Testing and Validation under the ISTQB (International Software Testing Qualifications Board). These cover Foundation level, Advanced level and Agile Testing. I’m encouraged and supported to further my learning in related areas such as DevOps and Performance Testing.

What is the company culture like?

I enjoy coming to work and a large part of that is the people I work with. If I had to describe the company culture in one word it would be alive, because there’s always something going on, always something to get stuck into as a volunteer or something to enjoy.

Security Specialist
Helsinki, Finland

I'm surrounded by friendly colleagues who are experts in their fields, always willing to share their experience and advice.

What do you love about working at Fujitsu?

I'm surrounded by friendly colleagues who are experts in their fields, always willing to share their experience and advice. There's always an exciting challenge and the impact of our work can be felt by hundreds or even millions of people around the globe.

What is a typical day like for you?

Since the Cybersecurity world moves at a very fast pace, my usual tasks revolve around analysing security events or incidents and finding lasting solutions from different monitoring systems.

What made you apply to Fujitsu?

Firstly, the global reach of the company. An acquaintance had also been speaking very highly of the company and the diverse opportunities that it offers its employees. But mostly, Fujitsu had a Cybersecurity department that was quite active in the enterprise sector and I had never heard of it!

What training do you receive on the programme?

Some of my training involves understanding the company philosophy, values and service models. There's also training in business awareness, improving our knowledge of teamwork and how it enables us to engage, co-create and co-operate more proactively with customers.

What is the company culture like?

I find it open, relaxed and supportive. Collaboration across departments is encouraged and there's always lots of activities to get involved with.

Adam Dawson

Sustainability Architect
Manchester, UK

There's a big focus on Responsible Business – things like environmental issues, diversity & inclusion, well-being.

What do you love about working at Fujitsu?

Being part of a worldwide company and learning the different cultures from other countries. In my role I have the opportunity to travel to Fujitsu offices around the UK, so I'm allowed to spread my wings.

What is a typical day like for you?

Busy and always different. I manage and maintain internal sites for several teams, as well as responding to service bids and undertaking carbon footprint calculations to analyse potential reductions in emissions and costs.

What made you apply to Fujitsu?

I knew Fujitsu was one of the top tech companies in the world, with a wide variety of technical areas to get involved in. But it was also important that they had a big focus on Corporate Social Responsibility.

What training do you receive on the programme?

My training includes improving leadership, business awareness, and how to cut waste on a daily basis (become more lean) – it all helps to develop and adapt to the corporate world. I also liked that graduates are appointed a Buddy to help them settle in to Fujitsu.

What is the company culture like?

There's a big focus on Responsible Business – things like environmental issues, diversity & inclusion, well-being. And there's always some activities to get involved in, from Earth Hour to World Clean Up Day, or just raising money for charity through events and lunches.

Nadjar Elser

Nadjar Elser
Sales Executive
Stuttgart, Germany

Some of my training is more about developing personal skills.

What do you love about working at Fujitsu?

It's an international company and I've met people from all over the world. The graduate programme gave me the chance to work for Fujitsu Helsinki - I loved being a part of that team for almost two months.

What is a typical day like for you?

A typical day is being at the office with great colleagues and talking to customers. What I enjoy most is meeting customers in person. It’s a great experience dealing with different kind of people.

What made you apply to Fujitsu?

I loved the fact that Fujitsu is a very international and diverse company.

What training do you receive on the programme?

Some of my training is more about developing personal skills. It shows how you act in a group, where you could or should change your behaviour to make things easier.

What is the company culture like?

What I like about Fujitsu is that it's fair, it's innovative and has all kinds of people working here.
