    I worked at Hitachi Consulting full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very sharp personnel, excellent systems and back office support, decent professional development opportunities, excellent working conditions in major offices, ability to work remotely

    Cons

    Hitachi Consulting has relied too heavily on large enterprise software conversions for keeping lots of junior staff billable at high margins.

    I have been working at Hitachi Consulting full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good company culture and great coworkers. Good company to start a consulting career.

    Cons

    Despite all the training modules and material available, the engagements are quite messy and don't follow the taught processes. Salaries not up to par with competitors so when the better companies call, people leave. The evaluation and appraisal process is awful, career progress comes quite often not as a result of an evaluation but as how strong the relationship with the OIC is or the potential of leaving the company.

    Advice to Management

    VPs and OICs to be closer to the front lines and provide meaningful tactical coaching to managers and consultants. CEO has a great vision but is has not materialized yet to the front line consultants.

    Pros

    If you're having a hard time thinking of something to write, you might want to think about explaining some of the reasons behind your ratings.

    Advice to Management

    I would say one of the best things about working at Hitachi Consulting are the people.
