    Pros

    HCC is one of the few companies which invest heavily on people's growth. They have the best of training and employee development programs. you will be surprised to see they almost have 60 % of the certified consultants in majority of their technology streams. There is lot of importance attached to value and culture of the organizations. When major companies defer the hikes and bonus payments , HCC till date from Inception never defaulted on the hike or promotions. The senior management takes utmost care about 3 critical factors " People, Customer and Quality ". Its one of the best companies to work for.

    Cons

    Managers need to spend more time with people explaining the good things they do for their benefit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay Focused and We have better future. Social Innovation is the game changer

    Pros

    The culture is something I never thought I could find. Unlike other firms, you're not just a number. Managers and even VPs will take the time to get to know you.

    Cons

    Half the leadership understands the importance of accommodating employee needs such as desire to travel, desire to experience different practices, etc, but the other half is still focused on keeping the consultants of their practice within their group and only their group.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be open to your employees' desire to work in different areas before settling on one. It's only benefiting them by making them more well-rounded.

    Pros

    Hitachi Consulting has work/life balance in consulting figured out. The fundamental travel requirement is inherently limiting, but HC leadership supports each person's individual needs to balance their lives. Propose a rational plan to meet the company/client's needs as well as your own and leaderhip is eager to work with you.

     - Great projects
     - Many opportunities to contribute to firm and personal growth outside of project work
     - Current growth trajectory much higher than the industry providing opportunities for advancement at all levels.

    Cons

    - Consistent, rapid growth has caused tremendous change in internal operations which can be hard to keep up with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recent changes in communications and increased transparency in terms of how we manage our business has been very well received - please keep it going!
