Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

Pros

All of this is applicable When cloud computing project started - a good place to learn - various good developement and testing practices - reaward for good work - work and life balance

Cons

things started going down the hill when new VP of Engineering was hired - bad management (hire and fire attitude) - negative competition enforced in the team - Unexperienced management team - No resepect for team members

Advice to Management

Instead of experimenting with the team structure all the time, hire correct people. Competition is good in the team but anything too much and negative is the reason most of the 'original' people left the company. Respect people for their work and not for their gender.

    I have been working at Hitachi Data Systems full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very flexible work environment. OK to work from home or set your schedule as long as work gets done.

    Cons

    Employee managers are god awful. No people management skills. Only concern is sucking up to their bosses. Annual review process has little to do with your work and results are pre-determined by senior managers, so actual manager has little input except to deliver the bad news to the employee. Why a best place to work? Pay is okay. Work flexibility is great, and you see top management one or two days per month. Also, lousy travel and expense reimbursement policies - four levels of approvals to make a $200 down and back trip to another office.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house of the low management. Promote them out of the company. Scrap the review process and replace it with something meaningful and accurate because the current system is neither!
