Mediocre talent meeting the status quo

Current Employee - Senior Manager in Dallas, TX
Current Employee - Senior Manager in Dallas, TX

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.

    Worst Company Ever - Avoid At All Costs

    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Senior Consultant in Bethesda, MD

    I worked at Hitachi Consulting

    Pros

    Worked beside good and smart people on relevant technologies. Given vacation between Christmas and New Year's. Unfortunately can't say much other than that.

    Cons

    Horrible hours. Lack of respect from incompetent management, was harassed on multiple occasions. No promotions. No raises. Forced to miss numerous trainings. Forced to miss annual holiday party, no substitute ever brought up. Got stiffed on my vacation balance payout by 21 hours or roughly 1k gross.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect the people who are doing the work, give recognition where it's deserved. Leading by example can be a good thing, if one is expecting weekend work and long hours, perhaps you should do so as well.
