    Pros

    Highly skilled, collaborative colleagues
    Good relationships with most major vendors

    Cons

    The top leadership's desire to become a $B company through rapid acquisition had a negative effect on morale

    Advice to Management

    Spend less time buying unknown talent, and more time working to retain the quality people that have already made Hitachi Consulting their home.

    Pros

    Lots of peers around the same age, interests. When starting out of college, everyone is joining at the same position and going through the same training and intro to work. You meet a lot of great people and learn a lot.

    Cons

    Pay is lower than other consulting firms.

    Advice to Management

    Be more direct and detailed about career progression.

    Pros

    Big company with some good projects around the world

    Cons

    HC became a largish player in the UK after acquiring Edenbrook which had a lot of good people, unfortunately most of them left within a few years due to culture changes - particularly in the Oracle practice who don't seem to have won an decent projects for quite a while now.

    Advice to Management

    Try and win some projects

  10. Not learning from previous acquisitions

    I worked at Hitachi Consulting full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Generally speaking the staff are great. There are always exceptions in every company but generally they are friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    Not learning from acquired companies or learning from prior integration mistakes. Staff internally tend to refer to themselves based on the company that they started with rather than being one company.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the staff from acquired companies and integrate them fully into the business. Their experience can help Hitachi Consulting grow as an organisation.

  11. Part Time
