    I worked at Hitachi Data Systems full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    They are still hiring, especially external candidates. They do have a new hire orientation.

    Cons

    The people here are work in cliques and if you don't fit in you are the first to be laid-off. This had to be the worst bait and switch job I have ever worked. I was told during the interview that I would have several weeks of training, work a later shift, and work from home one day a week. It took them over two months to get me through the new hire process. When I finally did start there was no training, I had to work the early shift, and the work-from-home one day a week was being reconsidered because of a former employee. My manager was a micromanager which I cannot stand, give me a chance to do my job. I was given a twelve month full-time employment opportunity and they laid me off in one month due to position no longer needed. I'm not really sure why they hired me to work one month when it took them two months to bring me on and I was told it would be one year. I have no idea how this company made it to the Fortune 100 list.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add in training for job understanding. Do not lie to people interviewing for a job just to get them to start working. Stop playing favorites with employees and promote the hardest workers.

    I worked at Hitachi Data Systems as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Team was helpful, very resourceful.
    Free gym, nice cafe, nice people

    Cons

    Favoritism is played amongst upper management
    Management has no presence and was no help with problems

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a presence and stick to your word. Stop repeating what others are saying and do what you say you're going to do
