No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Hitachi Consulting full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

- Engaged and open practice and executive leadership
- Emphasizes a well-rounded consultant and not just pure technical skills
- Provides opportunities for those that desire different career path - technical vs functional/managerial
 - Able to get engaged in projects earlier on when compared to bigger firms - get experience faster

Cons

- Experiencing growing pains after re-alignments
- Can be difficult to attract talent because name is not widely known
- Support services (HR, Operations, Recruiting, etc...) is a little short staffed compared to current size and growth projections
- Limited budget for vendor training
- Difficult to get buy-in for non-billable initiatives even if, long-term, the investment is worth it
- Because consultants ramp up their skills more quickly, find that large firms are pursuing them more actively which leads to some turnover of really good, young talent and a mid/top heavy organization

    Pros

    The job is relatively stress free, management is good.

    Cons

    Too fragmented, no true sense of team unity.

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent in how you handle personal issues with employees. When one employee has a personal crisis and the CIO is rallying everyone around the team and another employee has a crisis and the CIO doesn't so much as say a word, it demonstrates a problem with consistency.
