No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Financially strong.
Actual commitment to work-life balance.
Nice facility.

Cons

Have gone from valuing people who get things done to valuing people who "set expectations".
They set grand corporate goals, but don't like it if you point out decisions inconsistent with those policies..
Don't be a truth teller. It isn't appreciated.
While they are listed in the 100 best places to work, it is based on previous management..

Advice to Management

    I have been working at Hitachi Data Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Tries to provide honest and good products.
    It had been a good place to work like a family.

    Cons

    Had lost their touch on how to provide good products due to too many internal politics and arguments with no leadership. Sadly, management encourages politics. Also too many reorg and layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    There should be strategy and leadership. Should focus on strategy and execute.

    I have been working at Hitachi Data Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    We have a great company culture and everyone truly lives by it! It really is a great place to work!
    This is from Jack Domme, CEO down which truly ensures everyone knows this is not just talk or something that is one the web. It is truly real! Everyone has a common goal and we all work together to be successful as an organization! I have been here for over 5 years so I am past the honeymoon phase and still in love!

    Cons

    Our marketing could be better if you evaluate it againast our competition. It is the only con I have really seen from an employee perspective.

    Advice to Management

    Better marketing would be my only advice for improvement. Please keep up the good work!! This is truly hands down the best place I have ever worked!
