    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!
