- poor training
- sink or swim

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

    Pros

    Great mentoring and development structure, and very clear career path and progression system. Also, the right balance of local and travel projects with focus on a work-life balance.

    Cons

    The salaries and benefits are not competitive with other employers in the same industry and region. Additionally, the staffing process is not very crisp.

    "A me-too consulting company with poor strategic direction and awful execution."

    I worked at Hitachi Consulting full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Individual contributors are the salvation of the company in spite of Hitachi's manglement (that's mangle and management combined).

    Cons

    Zero strategy or tactical approach to client growth and management. I can look around and see the same middle managers and vice president stuck in the same title for the last 10 years, mostly because they don't deserve promotion and they haven't been let go. Customer management and relationship building is largely non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    Find an identity and create a real culture. Bring the client into the equation by fostering through partnerships. Institute a mentoring program to properly expand new talent's horizons.
