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

Pros

Salaries are market value and bonuses are fairly consistent. People are friendly with many long term employees and it has a family feel. Newly upgraded on site features like a gym, cafe, and group events. Good place for long term old fashioned 'one position until you retire' type job.

Cons

Very little room for growth, if any. Annual training is listed as benefit, but have been denied it several times. Antiquated internal technologies and resources are usually contractors.

Advice to Management

Invest in your loyal employees and encourage a more creative, effective workforce by planning for change and improvement. Embrace the Silicon Valley resources, knowledge, and energy right outside your door!

    I worked at Hitachi Data Systems full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Compensation was fairly good, and the bonus program (especially for mid-management) was very good.(25% annually). Work environment was pretty casual, and promoted collaboration.

    Cons

    You can sometimes get stuck in a rut, as there weren't too many opportunities to advance.When management changed over, focus seemed to move from employee-centric to bottom-line profits.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest that they do not forget what their #1 asset is....their employees. They are (were) very loyal, but the focus seemed to move away from them to bottom-line sometime around 2009-2010 -- a happy medium would've been good.

    I worked at Hitachi Data Systems as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of projects to support or be part of the teams involved. Very relaxed office culture. Gym and cafeteria were very organized and offered lots of options. Most employees are very positive and friendly.

    Cons

    Some communication issues between management and regular staff.

    Advice to Management

    Try to set up future interns with mentors who truly match the interns career goals and skills.
