I have been working at Hitachi Consulting full-time for more than 3 years

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
