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

Pros

Salary: At times you might feel that your salary is on the higher side. However, if you are on bench then your salary might result in you getting laid off (fired)

Cons

1. No planning at senior management and recruitment level: Talented people are recruited like anything inspite of the fact that there are no projects. The senior management keep on saying - "we have a good pipeline", however there are no projects and new joinees as well confirmed employees who came out of projects are being laid off within a day.

2. It is a CMM level 3 company, but behaves like a CMM Level 5 company and talks high about process and process and complicate things unnecessarily.

3. At the time of offer they said - "Notice period is of 30 days during first 6 months of probation period". However, at the joining day you will be forced to sign a document which says : "E-stoppel on resignation - you can resign for the first 6 months after you join the company". And there is no mention of leaves and other facilities and benefits on the offer letter that they issue".

4. The policies in Hitachi consulting keep on changing every now and then and the newer policies makes it more unfriendly ork env. for the employees.

5. Hitachi talks big about competeting with Wipro, Infy, TCS, CTS.... but the fact it that 20 years down the line they cant be even 50% of what these companies are.

6. Hitachi Consulting simply follows a policy of HIRE and FIRE. They recruit like any thing and after 2 month of bench they fire them. Simultaneously they keep on the process of recruitment as well to spread the news that they are hiring.

7. The payroll process in Hitachi consulting is one of the complex ever and sub-standard process followed.

8. Incase you need a maternity leave or a long LOP leave, Hitachi Consulting will force you to resign after a month and in future if you wish to join them, they will hire you as a contractor.

9. There is so much insecurity among the employees of the company, still it is surprising to see so many positive feedback about Hitachi Consulting. Sometimes I doubt that some of these might be fake.

10. The HR wing is absolute useless. They are just pretty faces and good for nothing. Always praising and buttering the senior guys and do not care about the root level employees.

11. The Senior manager guys need a massive change in attitude. They are sooo arrogant and talk to employees rudely. Some of these managers (especially Cop Heads) need to upgrade their soft skill and need to learn manners.

Advice to Management

Please stop hiring people when you dont have jobs in your company.
DO NOT change the terms and conditions in the offer letter. Make sure that the offer letter issued at the time of offer is the same as the one they are asked to sign on the joining day.
Why will an experienced person be forced into signing a bond on the joining day that one can't resign in the first 6 months of joining. He should be informed well in advanced and at the time of offer.
