I worked at Hitachi Data Systems full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

This company has a great vision, quality products but future is limited (see cons.)

Cons

If you are in IT, an engineer or in sales, you'd probably like it at this company. The other functions within the company are a mess. It's ironic that this company sells IT infrastructure but they have some of the WORST systems and processes I have seen in my 20+ year work history. They also don't have any training for new hires. They just throw you in and you either sink or swim. It's a shame because new people learn but they never know if it is the right thing and right way or not. At some point having to do either manual or double work due to poor systems will push good employees out the door.

Advice to Management

You are wasting money!! You are hiring more people than you need because they have to physically make up for your poor systems and infrastructure.

    I have been working at Hitachi Data Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    very positive culture
    recognizes efforts and extra efforts both financially and recognition, responsibility
    collaborative environment
    despite a somewhat siloed approach between Hitachi Ltd companies there is a feeling of family with other sister companies and their doors are always open

    Cons

    expense policy is not considerate of global travellers (cell phone limits are impossible if you travel)
    everyone wants to help - which can be distracting - but better than not wanting to help

    Advice to Management

    Stick to the strategy
    Review teh expense policies
