    Pros

    HR Policies are good.
    Work from home option when on project.
    Lots of training are being conducted.

    Cons

    Doesn't have good projects.
    Long bench time period (4 months)
    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.

    Pros

    Only flexi timings, again that depends upon your manager. some of the company policies are good but people use them in different way.

    Cons

    1. If your manager is not please with you or if got good hike at the time of joining they will not give you variable pay to keep your CTC within their budget and your performance will be below average.

    2. If you are in Pune and most of the team members are in Hyderabad then they will ask you to travel to Hyderabad at your own cost.

    3. Managers are not matured including senior managements.

    4. Senior managers and senior management do dirty politics.

    5. Specifically PeopleSoft practice is very worst and having only one project so think a lot before you join. If your manager is not good with you then you have no option either to quit or else they will sack you after giving bad rating in the appraisal.

    6. Sacking is a common thing here and it’s a very easy process there bcz all management have good bonding among themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They should grow up and follow the policy and whatever they speak. They should stop cheating people.

    Great entrepreneurial environment. The people are wonderful and the opportunities are limitless. The company has allowed for wonderful personal growth as you demonstrate the ability to deliver.

    Pros

    Overall I think the culture is good, they work hard at it and for the most part treat their people well.

    Cons

    Sometimes it seamed that several people had only one goal in mind, building their empire. That may have changed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow people to attend training, reward people for their hard work.

    Pros

    HCC is one of the few companies which invest heavily on people's growth. They have the best of training and employee development programs. you will be surprised to see they almost have 60 % of the certified consultants in majority of their technology streams. There is lot of importance attached to value and culture of the organizations. When major companies defer the hikes and bonus payments , HCC till date from Inception never defaulted on the hike or promotions. The senior management takes utmost care about 3 critical factors " People, Customer and Quality ". Its one of the best companies to work for.

    Cons

    Managers need to spend more time with people explaining the good things they do for their benefit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay Focused and We have better future. Social Innovation is the game changer

    Pros

    No buddy bothers if your on bench. You can enjoy your time. Lots of organizational activities.

    Cons

    All good reviews are from hydrabad and possibly from management.

    They have nothing to do with "Hitachi" except the name. Hitachi Ltd is not giving any business to them. (Ask them project name which they are doing for Hitachi, and since how long).

    There are no projects, If they got any and When your on project, No buddy cares if your working 14-15 hours daily for entire project duration. You will have weight gain, started having back pain, your eyes will have dryness all the time. you start dreaming of project and deadlines all the nights. will get Saturday or Sunday to spend with your family. Seen people started talking about suicide due to frustration.

    Nothing is there for Pune employee. Best example of partiality and favoritism. single digit appraisal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice, as they are not going to change. 99% Mgr are enjoying there honeymoon period . They don't want progress/changes and afraid of it, as it may come with challenges which they don't want to face. Still suggest don't Trust completely on Hydrabad Management have some buddy from USA/UK who is biased and also love growth.
