    I have been working at Hitachi Consulting full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    People are all very kind and casual, everyone I've worked with has a can-do attitude, the work-life balance is paramount and they allow you the time to tend to your own life when needed, the on-the-job learning is unmatched

    Cons

    HCC has trouble retaining entry-level consultants through the manager level, many leave because of pay increases elsewhere, not much pre-scripted training and much of your career is self led.

    Advice to Management

    Give pay increases and added responsibility to SC level employees, ask more delivery of your VP levels, not all sales. Maybe reduce the number of VPs on staff.

    Pros

    They want primarily young workers. You may have a good and long future if your skillset is SAP -- Hitachi Consulting's primary money maker. Overall rating for this particular opinion is reflective only of the group and offices of which I have knowledge and may not apply to all Hitachi Consulting Corporation organizational work groups.

    Cons

    If you are 50 or above, beware. Even with good reviews, Hitachi will find a way to get rid of you if they want. Last layoff at one location, all we're above the age of 40. One was in the 20s and was dismissed for poor performance even though with last review there was no mention to him that he was performing below expectations. Neither was there a plan put in place to monitor and perhaps help him as is standard practice. They also have been known to lay people off in good standing and then immediately hire someone that they prefer more--even though to my knowledge, this is illegal. Depending upon location, the good old boy network may exist. Work life balance can be good, however, if you work almost entirely remotely, you may be easy pickings to be let go. This is because since you are not seen frequently in an office, you probably will be have less of an impact on the remaining employees when dismissed. At meetings cover ups that people are laid off is common--the inference being that you went somewhere else -- perhaps another job.
