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

ProsGood work environment, management is good, good work life balance

ConsSlow in understanding the market trends in technology consulting business and leveraging global workforce

Advice to Senior ManagementStay ahead of times in technologies;
Caring for people focus is really good and this needs to translate to giving respect to the people and their work done and nurture and encourage talent and not treat them like mere resources/use and throw/slaves.
Management needs to take tough decisions when needed and be more aggressive in looking ahead of curve in technological advances

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

I have been working at Hitachi Consulting as an intern for less than a year

ProsThey have a very good base, engaging clients and exciting work. My time there has been great, a lot of very smart people.

ConsBurdened by their own large company and too displaced to work as together as a one large company. Found difficult experiences in collaborating within the companies sector.
