The company is currently focused on growth at whatever cost

Senior Manager (Current Employee)
Dallas, TX

I have been working at Hitachi Consulting

ProsOpportunity to become part of a fast growing company
Opportunity to travel for consulting roles
Opportunity to work with various technologies and industries

ConsExtreme lack of diversity from the Executive Leadership down, without any regard to making any changes
Priorties of "the firm" are the what you do (sales numbers, utilization), the how you accomplish is lower in importance - this says a lot about the culture of the company
Mentoring is not considered a key contribution - it is expected, but it is not valued
Technical training is not valued enough to set aside funding, the only way to get external training is if you find a project that can/will fund - thus you are limited to the technology of that project
Promotions are clearly about who you know and not about what you do

Advice to Senior ManagementUntil you value your people, truly value them, you will continue to see your strong performers walk out the door. Yes, this is to be expected from a consulting firm (as clearly stated by Phil Parr) - and yet somehow our competitors (those much more successful than HCC) have been able to identify ways to keep their strong performers and even add to them.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
