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

Pros

Results oriented with low emphasis on the details of how and when you get your job done. Industry leading products. Great peers!

Cons

More political than I would like. Managers are better at managing up than down. Occasionally reminded that HDS is just a component of one of the worlds largest companies.

Advice to Management

Great leadership at the senior management level. Good communication about big picture. Shorter term tactics could be better communicated. Spend more effort on manager training.

    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

    Read up on Japanese management style.

    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.
