I have been working at Hitachi Data Systems

Pros

HDS really does have great people. The team I work on is very close knit and we consider each other personal friends. No hidden agendas or cliques, which is rare. Flexibility to work from home for early calls or focussed project time is great. I feel appreciated and rewarded accordingly.

Cons

There is a lot of work and not enough people. That's pretty consistent across the organization. For those who are willing to make their own careers, this a great place. Don't expect a clear career path to be designed for you.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be realistic with what more you can accomplish without increasing staff. At some point doing more with less is counter productive if your workforce wears out.

    Not open to ideas from rank-and-file workers
    Unfair compensation system that gives much higher bonuses to grandfathered-employees, creating an unfair two-tier system
