I have been working at Hitachi Consulting

Pros

Opportunities to try different types of projects
Many opportunities for training/learning
Great people to work with

Cons

At times (depending on project assignment), work/life balance can be difficult
Across all of our locations, levels are not equal (meaning a Senior Consultant in one location doesn't have the same core skills as a Senior Consultant in another location)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep lines of communication open

    Pros

    There is a minority group inside Hitachi consulting that values talent and honesty over Gender, nationality, race etc when it comes to promotion and career advancement.

    Cons

    Majority of middle managers and VP's are unfair when it comes to promotion and poisitionng right employees in right projects. They lack leadership, inspiring committment, mentioring skills too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont thrust people into management roles, Top Manager who sells more modules shouldnt be made a VP. Allow people to develop skills in leading people, managing change etc.

    Mediocre talent meeting the status quo

    I have been working at Hitachi Consulting

    Pros

    Initiative is generally recognized and rewarded
    Company is willing to make investments where appropriate
    Company can leverage a big name even though they are small
    Leadership generally reactive to employee needs (seems to be changing)
    Travel is usually accomodating (travel if you want or stay local if you want)
    Nice winter holiday break (office shuts down for at least a week)
    Generally turns down staff augmentation work unless very strategic

    Cons

    Horribly corrupt salary bands (ex: some SC salaries > some SM salaries)
    Poor total compensation (little/no bonus, no 401K match, zero 2010 raises)
    Out of touch senior leadership that also plays favorites
    Messed up culture born from growth by acquisition with an inability to grow organtically
    Large inconsistencies between geographies

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Almost every con I listed can be attributed to growth by acquisition. We are a big melting pot of different organizations, each with its own salaries and cultures. Perhaps Hitachi Consulting needs to put the brakes on fast growth and establish a consistent message, strategy, and culture before trying to grow rapidly.
