    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Untapped potential of Hitachi corporate in Japan, including the potential reach into many relevant industries.

    Cons

    There are many:
    - Significant lack of visionary management;
    - Strong focus on transactional sales and delivery;
    - Lack of SME depth;
    - Highly political and bureaucratic;
    - Poor teaming and little collaboration among and across the consulting service lines.

    Advice to Management

    I would not provide advice to current management. Instead, if able, I would replace most all of the senior U.S. executive staff with fresh, collaborative, innovative thinkers.
