I worked at Hitachi Data Systems full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Hitachi Data Systems work on latest enterprise portal technologies and pretty laid back. Pretty good bonus and they are consistent with the bonus every year. They also provide lots of training and we can learn a lot.

Cons

Very laid back and very bureaucratic.. the management is not good. Projects are always delayed and some times employees end up doing very little and consultants are hired to do the same.

    I have been working at Hitachi Data Systems full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits
    Good products
    They are flexible in work schedule and working remote

    Cons

    Raises are terrible - the only way to get paid a good salary is to come in with a lot of experience. once you are there for a long time you salary will barely increase
    Japanese are difficult to work with
    Politics are very thick - hard to get anything done, multiple groups working against each other and duplicating effort
    For such a large company you have to work startup hours

    I worked at Hitachi Data Systems

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
