Spiraling downwards into the valley of despair

I worked at Hitachi Consulting

Pros

The one thing that HC has managed to do right (most of the time) is hire people who are fun to work with. I still enjoy spending time with my former co-workers very much. A few years ago HC was a great place to work and I gladly recommended it to my network. The camaraderie and breadth of projects made this firm look like it was going somewhere.

Cons

The pay is atrocious and downright offensive to any professional. The truth is so many people jump ship to make 30-40% more. The benefits, while not as ugly, are still sub par to other firms. Technical people often find themselves in the black hole of a maintenance project or staffed on a technical project that doesn't align with their skillset. Functional people settle for QA roles or get pidgeon holed into positions that don't differ too much from administrative assistant to clients. Seriously, this is suppose to be an top tier aspiring firm? The days of interesting projects, career growth, and skill development ended about 2 years ago.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You guys at the top should really think about your people. Morale is low and the firm is bleeding great talent. Have you stopped to think about why the pyramid is flipped? C'mon, keep it real and pay for the talent needed in a top tier firm. HC use to be a great place to work 4 years ago and you let that go. It's a damn shame.

    Pros

    some of the people are nice, talented, and genuine
    fun beer chugging culture

    Cons

    salary + benefits. they will give you excuses all day long as to how they are paying 'market' rates and why they can't pay you x.
    leadership & management are all talk and full of excuses. they play favorites and it shows.
    can't get their act straight to really become a big 4 like they want.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    value your workers, stop being subjective in promotions and salaries and ratings, pay your workers, stop making excuses and giving us bs. everyone under the VP level may seem like they admire the VPs, but deep down people are untrusting of anyone over VP.

    Cons

    Inconsistent culture. Hard to get collaboration on national projects. National pursuit of business Typically leads to a lot of travel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make strategic investments in people and follow through.
