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

Pros

Hitachi Data Systems is a medium size company with the backing of a $119B Global Powerhouse. You can find the "startup" mentality with the support of a multibillion dollar corporation. You have the ability to greatly influence positives outcomes as well as to learn other areas outside of your core competencies. Last, the Japanese influence of respect and teamwork is something very unique at HDS (as well as other Hitachi companies). Such culture is something that it's becoming very rare in other companies

Cons

Slow approach to go to market in certain areas. Hitachi is known for quality of technology and service rather than on leading on feature/functions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to drive the vision set a few years ago. Also, evaluate new business markets for potential investment opportunities.

    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.

    Cons

    The parent company of HDS is Japanese, so naturally there are many Japanese expatriates you have to work with. They tend to congregate with their own kind and the language barrier doesn't help. However, this is a very minor con

    Pros

    Good benefits, including 401(k) matching funds and Health Savings Account. Hires older, experienced workers with no prejudice.

    Cons

    Old-style hardware manufacturing company processes. A small change to the price list, such as changing the descriptive name of a product, can take as long as 3 months for all approvals and to get through the IT department.
