    Pros

    Duration of stay in office(Punch in & punch out time)min. 5 hours, if you join in mid level or senior management you can read newspaper or carry news paper to the office as well.

    Cons

    The curse on the company is it has inherited dead mass in form of old employees (working in organization more than 10 to 20 year from sierra atlanta) who have been punching and lunching all the while ,they lost touch with industry trends, technology and most importantly lack vision, the company hires people based on the pipeline rather than actual purchase order in hand, when the conversion of pipeline to PO’s is not materialized the people on bench or people hired for the projects in pipeline are vulnerable to getting fired for no mistake of theirs.

    The most risky aspect is that company is heavily dependent on 2 to 3 clients engagements (which has resources of 50 to 100 on each engagement) any major budget cuts/pull back by the clients has a cascading effect on the company increasing its headcount on the bench, since the company is heavy on the top management , they cannot maintain a bench of 10%(which is bear minimal in any organization)

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of your idle dead mass(Senior and Mid Level Management in India ) Mr. CEO.

    Pros

    Hitachi Brand;
    Decent Oracle practice;
    global company

    Cons

    Management has no vision; does not treasure people, view them as a tool to make money; wants to compete as Tier 1 consultant but in reality far from it and has no idea how to get there
    All that management knows is to buy buy buy to inflate the market value of the company
    Low pay, meager severance,

    Advice to Management

    really go about treating the employess as asset instead of paying lip service
    treat people with respect and dignity
    establish medium to long term plans that are not just focusing on the bottom line

    Pros

    There are talented and hard working people at Hitachi Consulting. You are paid decent wages and you are expected to work long hours.

    Cons

    The management team treats you like a commodity. Your opinions are not sought out. The management team keeps most of their employees in the dark. Layoffs happen quite regularly as Hitachi has trouble managing it's business . Don't expect to keep your job longer than two years.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs new leadership.
