I worked at Hitachi Data Systems as a contractor for more than a year

Pros

Many smart people and lots of workplace flexibility, at least in the group I was in. They also pay well.

Cons

Storage is a tough business and HDS has tough competition with little differentiation. HDS doesn't make the storage products themselves, so they are very dependent on Hitachi in Japan. In effect, they are like a sales and marketing channel for the parent company. In theory, they are independent, but in practice Hitachi calls the shots. This makes it hard to plan and/or act on plans.

    I have been working at Hitachi Data Systems full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Having worked with HDS colleagues from over 40 countries, I find employees generally have a very high degree of honesty, integrity and a desire to help fellow colleagues. Good work/life balance and good benefits. Good transparency by executives. I have recommended HDS to close friends. This is a great company. I thought I would be here just a few years, but I really enjoy working for HDS.

    Cons

    Pay is ok, but could always be better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maintain focus on core values, family/life balance as we continue grow.
