    I worked at Hitachi Data Systems as a contractor

    Pros

    HDS has great people and good/decent salaries and benefits. It would be an ideal place to work if you are family oriented as it provides a great work/life balance. It has a "family" feel and your coworkers are willing to help you out, not prey on your weaknesses.

    Cons

    This is NOT an ideal place for young professionals and it appeared that there is little opportunity for advancement. Regular budget cuts were extremely frustrating and makes it difficult to do your job effectively. I don't know about the rest of the company but it seemed as if poor leadership in the marketing department contributed to the confused and chaotic structure of the organization. The different marketing teams are rather disjointed and many responsibilities were blurred.
