    Pros

    Ethical, good place to start.

    Feels like a place full of old white people. Few benefits for young people like paid parental leave, adoption assistance, onsite day care.

    Former Employee - Marketing Program Manager in Santa Clara, CA

    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.
