    Pros

    Hitachi Consulting has work/life balance in consulting figured out. The fundamental travel requirement is inherently limiting, but HC leadership supports each person's individual needs to balance their lives. Propose a rational plan to meet the company/client's needs as well as your own and leaderhip is eager to work with you.

     - Great projects
     - Many opportunities to contribute to firm and personal growth outside of project work
     - Current growth trajectory much higher than the industry providing opportunities for advancement at all levels.

    Cons

    - Consistent, rapid growth has caused tremendous change in internal operations which can be hard to keep up with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recent changes in communications and increased transparency in terms of how we manage our business has been very well received - please keep it going!

    Current Employee - Senior Consultant in Denver, CO

    I have been working at Hitachi Consulting full-time (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.
