Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Hitachi Consulting as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

You learn to dress up, send important looking reports (even if useless) every other day.

Cons

Very stratified, they take 75% of bill rate and only pass 25% to consultants. They try to be like Accenture but on the cheap so for this 75% margin consultants get terrible benefits and a lot of beauracracy.

Advice to Management

Consultants are the ones making you the money. Your exploitation of them won't win you good will or last forever.

    Pros

    Small company feel with big company backing. Many opportunities to learn and you will receive full support of management to develop your skills. Provides many learning opportunities and reimbursement for training and certifications. Trust in managing your own time. Great place for college hires.

    Cons

    Still stuck in the old consulting mentality of stacking and KPIs. Although they have tried to make some changes in the annual review process, your career growth is still tied to how well the team you are on performs. That means that you can be an outstanding performer, but if you are part of a small team or a team that does not generate much revenue, your career will stall once you are considered a "Manager".

    Advice to Management

    When you hear numerous complaints about specific consultants, perhaps it's time to think about getting rid of them. Don't wait for them to leave. Do not promote or bring on consultants at a higher level than they should be. This results in frustration from the other consultants as well as poor delivery with the customers.
