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

Pros

Salaries are market value and bonuses are fairly consistent. People are friendly with many long term employees and it has a family feel. Newly upgraded on site features like a gym, cafe, and group events. Good place for long term old fashioned 'one position until you retire' type job.

Cons

Very little room for growth, if any. Annual training is listed as benefit, but have been denied it several times. Antiquated internal technologies and resources are usually contractors.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest in your loyal employees and encourage a more creative, effective workforce by planning for change and improvement. Embrace the Silicon Valley resources, knowledge, and energy right outside your door!

    Pros

    Great pay and ethical company. Company has been very stable and pride themself on making a happy workplace. Great benefits as well.

    Cons

    At times overly structured, sometimes difficult to grow within a department or a field but that depends on the department you are in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let your employees think more outside the box, allow for more advancement within teams.
