Oh Really ?
"So we have a new boss, with the same ideas of profit, profit profit and"
Could you please take out the pocket calculator and divide the UK profits by number of people employed in the UK ? You are going to figure it is a very small amount. A bad quarter could push Fujitsu deep into the red.
The overall Fujitsu profits are also pretty bad as compared to revenue and number of employees. Don't believe in the crap your union is telling you. Perform the calculations yourself.
Bad results will definitely hurt the long-term prospects of employees of any company and Fujitsu is totally right not to give away money they do not have. Actually, they should be much more aggressive in financial terms, as they will need a lot of money for new computing models in the era of cheap x86 clusters. The right thing to do would be making thousands of people redundant. THAT is the truth. Even if it hurts.
