"Lacks training and career development"

Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Great health insurance
A lot of PTO time

Cons

Management doesn't listen to you about your career development wishes
Not much training, especially with technology
They make non management people do a lot of administrative work such as creating proposals billing clients, and sales work.

Advice to Management

There needs to be more opportunities for training. For people that have functional consulting experience, it can be a challenge to get good technical experience and knowledge at Hitachi Consulting. Also Hitachi says that they listen to employees regarding career development. However, I've found that they usually just try to staff me on any project they can find. Plus, some of the project managers lack leadership ability and shouldn't be in charge of other people.

    Salary is terrible
    No Bonuses
    Too much overhead
    Team culture has evaporated

    Advice to Management

    Get with the times. Completely overhaul compensation and recognition programs. Get rid of the people who are coasting. Reward the employees who deserve it - not the ones who have been there a long time.
