From outside - successful; from inside - a MESS!

Manager (Former Employee)

I worked at Hitachi Data Systems full-time for less than a year

ProsThis company has a great vision, quality products but future is limited (see cons.)

ConsIf you are in IT, an engineer or in sales, you'd probably like it at this company. The other functions within the company are a mess. It's ironic that this company sells IT infrastructure but they have some of the WORST systems and processes I have seen in my 20+ year work history. They also don't have any training for new hires. They just throw you in and you either sink or swim. It's a shame because new people learn but they never know if it is the right thing and right way or not. At some point having to do either manual or double work due to poor systems will push good employees out the door.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou are wasting money!! You are hiring more people than you need because they have to physically make up for your poor systems and infrastructure.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
