I worked at Hitachi Data Systems full-time

Pros

The people - a geuine culture of all for one. The overall Japanese ethical approach and the chance of being a bigger fish in a smaller pond. Some great technology to sell, some a little old, but impressive plans for the future. HDS still has a "whatever it takes" attitude to customer service, although its to be seen how long that lasts.

Cons

Current UK management - ham fisted, insensitive and ill-informed. They appear to be attempting to upset a different team every few months.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Instead of drawing up plans in ivory towers, actually find out how the business works before attempting to "fix" it.

    I worked at Hitachi Data Systems

    Pros

    Many great people, some flexibity with regard to schedule depending on which department/ division you're in, nice facility. Friendly and respectful culture.

    Cons

    Recognition and reward system is project-based; not much recognition for long-term, sustained extraordinary effort with minimal resources. Management seeks little input from the people actually doing the job. Some very beaurocratic processes which bog things down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better "open door" policy and more contact with employees at all levels of the organization.
