    I worked at Hitachi Data Systems

    Pros

    Prestige - manufactures well-respected data storage hardware
    Some of nicest high-tech workers I've ever worked with
    High paying
    Co-workers some of the best and brightest in industry
    Promotes telecommuting

    Cons

    Managers I worked for were less than competent in their areas
    Management was not supportive of subordinates
    Matrixed structure where employees could report to different people depending upon project - created too many bosses (and people to please)
    Contractors were released on moment's notice
    Project management was a nightmare - too many stakeholders to please

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure that your managers are competent in their functional areas.
    Allow employees to "think and act outside of their very narrowly circumscribed boxes.

    I have been working at Hitachi Data Systems

    Pros

    Unique culture. Highly collaborative society. Everyone is very friendly and supportive. Good sized organization with enough structure in place to get things done, but not so much that the scope of your role feels limited.

    Good amount of opportunities for growth. Flexible hours for commuters although in office time is highly preferable.

    Cons

    Work loads are high. Vacation time can be taken but everyone is still connected. Teams are kept lean so really having time completely out of pocket is rare.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to not be so reactionary and plan ahead for staffing needs. Burn out happens too often here.
