I have been working at Hitachi Consulting

Pros

The people I work with are great. The benefits are good and overall they won't make you work too hard. If you are married or have a family they are extremely accomodating.

Cons

You will now have to travel close to 100% of the time. There is not a lot of opportunity for advancement. if you are one of the lucky few to get a promotion you will be disappointed by the meager salary increases.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The reorganization is not benefitting anyone but senior management. I've been with the company for a few years and frankly it's hard to drink the kool-aid anymore. I don't see a future for myself here long term.

    Transition to national solution practice is not going well

    Pros

    Excellent opportunities to work on high profile clients, just not high profile projects. Excellent opportunities to work with and mentor junior level resources

    Cons

    The transition from a local, geographically focused practice to a national solution focused practice is not going very well and there is a great deal of frustration. Senior level management tends to be ok - but not really supportive of their teams. The mentality is quickly becoming a much more 'mercenarial' than previously

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more up front on the transition to a national solution model and implications. Metrics are not incenting personnel to collaborate - rather, the focus on high utilization (87% for managers), project role margin, and low management fees incents S/AM's to play it safe and 'sell' themselves long term to staff aug roles and not take a chance on large implementations that have a lower chance of success. Managers are being made to work extensively on these proposals because VP's do not have the bandwidth - but Managers are being measured on high utilization and low managed fees - perfect for people to 'play it safe'
