    Pros

    - Could look good in resume
    - Exposure to clients issues could be the saving grace to working here. This is where the learning happens.

    - work ethics (many don't respond to emails)
    - Very hierarchical management style (look up, not down)
    - difficult to get anything done that is not billable
    - poor training
    - sink or swim

    Pros

    Great mentoring and development structure, and very clear career path and progression system. Also, the right balance of local and travel projects with focus on a work-life balance.

    Cons

    The salaries and benefits are not competitive with other employers in the same industry and region. Additionally, the staffing process is not very crisp.

    Pros

    The people and smart and collaborative. I have a lot of flexibility whether to travel or not (likely due to my specialized area). I am compensated fairly.

    Cons

    HCC is going through some growing pains due to multiple global acquisitions while also trying to grow the service lines outside of more classical ERP-type services.

    Pros

    For young consultants trying to gain experience, Hitachi can be a good place to work. Not sure it is a place to hang your hat for a career though given the lack of capabilites and innovative solutions.

    Cons

    Seems to be a lack of commitment and understanding by executive management on how to grow a consulting company. Lack of breadth, depth and capabilites to compete with the big boys - ACN, IBM, Deloitte, etc. and no clear strategy on how their going to improve

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some experienced help that truly understands how to build a consulting company and differentiate themselves in the marketplace.

    Has generally been very good, but in the last couple of years with new leadership in the US, things have deteriorated.

    Current Employee - Senior Manager, Specialized Services in Dallas, TX

    I have been working at Hitachi Consulting full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Engaged and open practice and executive leadership
    - Emphasizes a well-rounded consultant and not just pure technical skills
    - Provides opportunities for those that desire different career path - technical vs functional/managerial
     - Able to get engaged in projects earlier on when compared to bigger firms - get experience faster

    Cons

    - Experiencing growing pains after re-alignments
    - Can be difficult to attract talent because name is not widely known
    - Support services (HR, Operations, Recruiting, etc...) is a little short staffed compared to current size and growth projections
    - Limited budget for vendor training
    - Difficult to get buy-in for non-billable initiatives even if, long-term, the investment is worth it
    - Because consultants ramp up their skills more quickly, find that large firms are pursuing them more actively which leads to some turnover of really good, young talent and a mid/top heavy organization

    Pros

    The job is relatively stress free, management is good.

    Cons

    Too fragmented, no true sense of team unity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be consistent in how you handle personal issues with employees. When one employee has a personal crisis and the CIO is rallying everyone around the team and another employee has a crisis and the CIO doesn't so much as say a word, it demonstrates a problem with consistency.

    Pros

    The people I work with from the Manager level and above are very committed to the success of the company and their clients. There is an atmosphere that is very conducive to working together. Because it is a rather small company, relative to the major firms, it is like a family often times with all the pros and cons that entails. People are very sensitive to work life balance and try to do the best with helping you achieve a good balance.

    Cons

    Some of the junior resources do not seem to be committed to building a career with the company, but are just trying it out to see how it goes. However, this may be a shift in the broader industry and not necessarily specific to Hitachi Consulting. The company has grown very fast in the last few years and the organizational structure is not yet optimal. Accountability for results needs to be stronger at the executive leadership levels.
