There is more about Hitachi that meets the eye.....

Senior Director (Current Employee)
Santa Clara, CA

ProsHitachi 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

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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Employes are fairly nice to work with... Upper management is another story.

    Finance (Current Employee)
    Santa Clara, CA

    I have been working at Hitachi Data Systems full-time for more than 5 years


    Pros: Gym onsite, new cafe ( but mediocre food), health club… Cons: With the changes in management the past 6 years and setup of new processes the company has become somewhat inefficient...ironic. Many new employees lose motivation… Advice to Senior Management: Reward the good employees and provide career development and more promotions. If you are asking to lower expenses, please don't turn around the next day… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
