    Current Employee - Senior Manager in Denver, CO

    Pros

    Some really decent, hardworking people, especially at mid-lower levels

    Cons

    Sr Management with little to no long-term vision or concern about retention
    Failure after failure at acquisition goals
    Unrealistic revenue goals given resources and plan
    Poor communication between Sr Management and the rest of company
    Been slowly offshoring much of critical functions to India after purchase of Sierra Atlantic--but positioned resulting job eliminatiosn as "job redundancy"
    Laying off 6-10% of workforce in 2012

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your drastic and almost reckless strategy for reducing operating income is obviously impacting both your growth and reputation. Word spreads fast, to market analysts and to potential customers.

    Current Employee - Senior Consultant  in  Denver, CO
    Current Employee - Senior Consultant in Denver, CO

    Pros

    Great health insurance
    A lot of PTO time

    Cons

    Management doesn't listen to you about your career development wishes
    Not much training, especially with technology
    They make non management people do a lot of administrative work such as creating proposals billing clients, and sales work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be more opportunities for training. For people that have functional consulting experience, it can be a challenge to get good technical experience and knowledge at Hitachi Consulting. Also Hitachi says that they listen to employees regarding career development. However, I've found that they usually just try to staff me on any project they can find. Plus, some of the project managers lack leadership ability and shouldn't be in charge of other people.

    Pros

    good place to start if you're coming out fo college but not for Sr Consultant. They have a nice benefits package, which is good for those that need it. Great Health benefits.

    Cons

    poor managment, poor communication, impossible to get people to do their jobs correctly. The management and recruiting team is not technical even close to enough to understand their own consultants and clients' needs. They don't review their consultants skill sets to better place them for growth of the company or growth of the consultant. Efforts should be taken from the top down to reduce turnover and keep consultants on staff that actually know their skill sets not fake them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    communicate better and base reviews and promotions on skill set and performance not time spent in a position.
