Pros

Job satisfaction, team atmosphere, fun place to work, life balance between work and play, your co-workers turn into your friends.

Cons

Pyramid level of management structure only so may managers/sr managers/directors/vps so it is hard to get promoted. Sometime the travel can be a bit much.

    Current Employee - Senior Manager in Dallas, TX

    I have been working at Hitachi Consulting

    Pros

    Opportunity to become part of a fast growing company
    Opportunity to travel for consulting roles
    Opportunity to work with various technologies and industries

    Cons

    Extreme lack of diversity from the Executive Leadership down, without any regard to making any changes
    Priorties of "the firm" are the what you do (sales numbers, utilization), the how you accomplish is lower in importance - this says a lot about the culture of the company
    Mentoring is not considered a key contribution - it is expected, but it is not valued
    Technical training is not valued enough to set aside funding, the only way to get external training is if you find a project that can/will fund - thus you are limited to the technology of that project
    Promotions are clearly about who you know and not about what you do

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Until you value your people, truly value them, you will continue to see your strong performers walk out the door. Yes, this is to be expected from a consulting firm (as clearly stated by Phil Parr) - and yet somehow our competitors (those much more successful than HCC) have been able to identify ways to keep their strong performers and even add to them.
