I have been working at Hitachi Consulting full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Great work-life balance: you can take days off without worry. Managers are very understanding about personal time and will generally allow you to flex your schedule as needed. Depending on project, hours can be moderate. Management is easily accessible, I've had numerous lunches with VPs and Directors.

Cons

For those looking to travel, don't live in Southern California and be a junior consultant - it's very unlikely. Pay is lower than industry standard. Staffing can be a nightmare if you are not marketing yourself to VPs and Directors. Need to build a brand to get staffed quickly.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make staffing process easier and more transparent. Make a push for junior consultants to get staffed across the country by subsidizing initial cost of travel to client. This will lead to more experienced consultants that can be sold more quickly in the future.

    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!
