    I have been working at Hitachi Consulting full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I greatly enjoy the leadership and activities in my local office. There is a clear progression path for junior level employees and wonderful learning opportunities.

    Cons

    Do not get a lot of control over where you get staffed - particularly at the lower levels

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership could more clearly convey how hard its working for its employees in its communications. Sometimes its dedication to internal efforts isn't highlighted as much as it should be and gets lost in the shuffle of other corporate initiatives.

    The Pursuit of Quality

    Pros

    Challenging work, projects, and clients. If you have the right skillset or want to build a skillset, this is a great place to do it. Those who have the confidence and ability to ask for what they want will get it (as is the way life goes, right?)

    Cons

    There is a perceived inconsistency between management styles, but this is typical of any organization and internal efforts are being made to provide more consistency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quality will always win over politics. If senior management can focus on hiring the best and keeping them (us) happy, then the company will grow, business will increase, and revenues will follow.

    Pros

    The people and smart and collaborative. I have a lot of flexibility whether to travel or not (likely due to my specialized area). I am compensated fairly.

    Cons

    HCC is going through some growing pains due to multiple global acquisitions while also trying to grow the service lines outside of more classical ERP-type services.

    Pros

    Great people.
    Good culture in former Andersen cities.
    Up and coming practice. Strong leadership.

    Cons

    Value proposition has changed. Used to be a place that provided a culture of local work over travel. Now they have changed to a national model and no longer have p/l at the local market. Salaries for people who travel now have not been moved commensurate with value proposition change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to leveraged model and make sure you have consistency in how people are working on engagements. SM's should not be doing SC work.

    Pros

    Opportunities to try different types of projects
    Many opportunities for training/learning
    Great people to work with

    Cons

    At times (depending on project assignment), work/life balance can be difficult
    Across all of our locations, levels are not equal (meaning a Senior Consultant in one location doesn't have the same core skills as a Senior Consultant in another location)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep lines of communication open

    Cons

    A smaller firm trying to compete with the larger firms, competitive pay is hard to come by.

    Business decisions should be transparent regardless of what level the employee is

    Pros

    The people are great
    The work can be interesting

    Cons

    The firm just doesn't invest in its people enough - training, etc.
    I never felt that senior leadership had a clear vision as to where they wanted to go and how to get there

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a step back, decide what you want the firm to be, and make a plan to get there

    I have been working at Hitachi Consulting

    Pros

    The people I work with are great. The benefits are good and overall they won't make you work too hard. If you are married or have a family they are extremely accomodating.

    Cons

    You will now have to travel close to 100% of the time. There is not a lot of opportunity for advancement. if you are one of the lucky few to get a promotion you will be disappointed by the meager salary increases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The reorganization is not benefitting anyone but senior management. I've been with the company for a few years and frankly it's hard to drink the kool-aid anymore. I don't see a future for myself here long term.
