    Pros

    For the technical people, there seem to be great opportunities to advance.

    Cons

    At a huge company, figuring out the rules with legal is a slow and scary prospect

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Require management to welcome ALL people from a new acquitision. Seemed like they were NOT open to learning anything from the experience of the people they acquired.

    Good company, but leadership is stretched too thin to focus on employees.

    Pros

    Good PTO, especially around Christmas-New Year's. If you don't prefer travel, management tries to find you local opportunities, however, travel is definitely part of the job. Good community presence, and college hiring program. Consulting Core program exposes new-grad hires to a variety of projects and technologies, so really good entry-level career.

    Cons

    Leadership is stretched too thin to be able to focus on what the employees need. Lack of technical leadership due to turnover, so if you're in the technology practice, that should be a major career concern (but maybe this is the case only in my practice). Parent company (Hitachi Ltd.) imposes very challenging targets on the consulting group (Hitachi Consulting), so leadership is always busy chasing targets, losing sight of how to grow the practice, improving delivery quality and preventing turnover. Bonus is irregular, and compensation adjustment is not great, even when promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on growing the practice organically by providing better training options, and empowering your consultants. Do more to prevent turnover, especially your quality employees and those with potential, or you risk becoming another mediocre consulting firm with a revolving door.

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There 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.

    Work from home option when on project.

    Only Hitachi Hyderabad is good. Pune is ok but Bangalore is worst.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to focus on Bangalore office more. People should get good exposure working here.
