"Mediocre talent meeting the status quo"

  • Work/Life Balance

  • Senior Management
Current Employee - Senior Manager in Dallas, TX
Current Employee - Senior Manager in Dallas, TX
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Initiative is generally recognized and rewarded
Company is willing to make investments where appropriate
Company can leverage a big name even though they are small
Leadership generally reactive to employee needs (seems to be changing)
Travel is usually accomodating (travel if you want or stay local if you want)
Nice winter holiday break (office shuts down for at least a week)
Generally turns down staff augmentation work unless very strategic

Cons

Horribly corrupt salary bands (ex: some SC salaries > some SM salaries)
Poor total compensation (little/no bonus, no 401K match, zero 2010 raises)
Out of touch senior leadership that also plays favorites
Messed up culture born from growth by acquisition with an inability to grow organtically
Large inconsistencies between geographies

Advice to Management

Almost every con I listed can be attributed to growth by acquisition. We are a big melting pot of different organizations, each with its own salaries and cultures. Perhaps Hitachi Consulting needs to put the brakes on fast growth and establish a consistent message, strategy, and culture before trying to grow rapidly.

    Current Employee - Consultant in Houston, TX

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    There is a minority group inside Hitachi consulting that values talent and honesty over Gender, nationality, race etc when it comes to promotion and career advancement.

    Cons

    Majority of middle managers and VP's are unfair when it comes to promotion and poisitionng right employees in right projects. They lack leadership, inspiring committment, mentioring skills too.

    Advice to Management

    Dont thrust people into management roles, Top Manager who sells more modules shouldnt be made a VP. Allow people to develop skills in leading people, managing change etc.
