    I worked at Hitachi Data Systems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Friendly atmosphere - Diverse cultural mix - Competitive pay - Good work/life balance - Very teamwork oriented - High potential for bonuses and rewards for your efforts (you get out what you put in) Overall, this is one of your ideal employers if you are in the high tech industry that Silicon Valley is known for.

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

    Pros

    Great people that are dedicated and company culture and values are strong and honest. Hitachi's technology is second to none.

    Cons

    Middle management, specifically in sales organization doesn't embrace nor understand the essence of leadership. A lot of people can manage a business and manage people, though learning to lead and inspire them is a different skill which is almost nonexistent at the 2nd management and above. Politics run high which demotivates and hampers the organizations. There is also a lack of process and most of the processes that exist need to be refined and improved.

    Advice to Management

    Develop true leadership skills, learn how to motivate people and inspire them. Hitachi is a great company with fantastic technology, though the middle level management has never evolved.
