    SAP Architect

    SAP Architect (Former Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsNice people. Good work environment. Work and life balance. Managers taking care of people.

    ConsMid size company and struggling to compete with major league consultant companies and with small companies. Allowing customer stress consultants. Too many managers and not may soldiers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRedefine sizing, this company does not need all these VP and Directors, need more technical people.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    It was a great company...many years ago.

    Senior Manager (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsThe people you work with are smart and interesting.
    The local office culture is strong in Houston.

    ConsSenior Leadership is out of touch with their employees.
    Senior Leadership does not know how to run a company of this size - they are flying by the seat of their pants.
    Local Leadership has no autonomy or authority to make things happen.
    Long work hours, small raises, even smaller bonuses.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet back to basics - stop over engineering everything.
    Get engaged with the people and stop leading via spreadsheet.

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

    Fairness shown by Middle Managers and Senior Management

    Consultant (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsThere is a minority group inside Hitachi consulting that values talent and honesty over Gender, nationality, race etc when it comes to promotion and career advancement.

    ConsMajority of middle managers and VP's are unfair when it comes to promotion and poisitionng right employees in right projects. They lack leadership, inspiring committment, mentioring skills too.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDont thrust people into management roles, Top Manager who sells more modules shouldnt be made a VP. Allow people to develop skills in leading people, managing change etc.

    Hitachi Consulting good place to work but not for the pay.

    Consultant (Former Employee)
    Houston, TX

    Prosflexible, friendly crowd, tries to keep consulting gigs local

    Conssalary, they pay little for a consulting company plus stingy on the benefits.

    Advice to Senior Managementpay more
