    A great company to work for

    Senior Consultant (Former Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    ProsThe people really make this firm. It's a fun and exciting place to grow your career. Everyone is very fair and treats each other with a great deal of respect. They offer a broad range of solutions and sell to many of the Fortune 100 companies. The solutions they offer allow people to build skills in relevant market solutions.

    ConsIt's a very small consultancy that competes with the big firms, which can sometimes be wierd. Some of the training curiculum isn't too built out yet, although I hear they're working on it. Compensation can be a little on the low end for the marketplace.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your people. Talk with the Senior Consultant and Manager level people regularly.

    Hitachi Consulting = Team Environment + Lots of Valuable Experience

    Consultant (Current Employee)

    Pros1) Senior Management (in my office) has a *very* open door policy
    2) Team atmosphere amongst co-workers as opposed to competition for good laddering (the firm doesn't succeed unless we all succeed)
    3) Small offices make for a family-like team
    4) Feels like a startup company where you are given a lot of opportunities to be a utility player and thereby obtain myriad experience
    5) More flexibility than competitors in terms of whether you'd like to travel or not

    Cons1) Lack of a stock purchase plan such as an ESPP
    2) Annual review process is cumbersome, as it is at all consulting firms where their people is the product

    Advice to Senior ManagementFrom a local standpoint, the VP's in my office are absolutely fantastic.

    More communication from our CEO to all employees would be encouraged.

    The Pursuit of Quality

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Denver, CO

    ProsChallenging 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?)

    ConsThere 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 Senior ManagementQuality 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.

    Good Future. Need to shape up

    Senior Manager (Current Employee)
    Pune (India)

    ProsLeadership direction from a larger Hitachi makes it a very promising place from a future growth perspective. Good potential opportunities for the people.

    ConsLimited growth @ GDC. Difficult to see how we will make the transition to the company of the future that the leadership talks about.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere is some good work happening in pockets which should be recognized. There are some inefficiencies especially at the mid management levels which need to be addressed.
