    I have been working at Hitachi Consulting full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Hitachi Consulting really is known for there collaborative, and supportive culture. There is no visible distinction in hierarchy. Directors and above really keep the "open door" policy alive.

    Work-life balance is achievable

    Cons

    The company is going through a restructing and moving in different direction in our product offerings....this move doesn't seem to be as fruitful as hoped.

    The salary is way below what our competitors offer.

    Transparency from leadership and HR to delivery personnel is becoming an issue.

    Career growth is becoming cloudy, no clear path to get anywhere within the company and the requirements for training has changed so much that no one knows what is going on anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Do not loose focus and direction for those doing the work. We rely on a clear message and direction with obtainable goals...that is lacking severely of late.

    With lots of big corporate clients, it was hard to find "meaning" in the work I was doing

    Pros

    Great team, smart and fun people to work with.

    Cons

    too much non-profit extra activities.
    end of the year review process is too much work for very little outcome.

    Pros

    Opportunity to work on a variety of projects in a variety of industries and technologies. Low power distance to management. Work with very talented people.

    Cons

    Long term company strategy is unknown beyond growing to a billion dollar business. Why? What will that do for us? Company is very secretive about compensation - campus hires consistently being brought on at a higher starting salary than those campus hires from a year earlier. Campus hires being brought on at a higher salary than Senior Consultants I or II, which reflects market demand, but incredibly demoralizing. Moderate turnover at the Consultant and Senior Consultant level for this reason.

    Advice to Management

    Although the company is transparent and the power distance is low in many regards, compensation and other benefit services are too secretive and taboo. Be the open, honest company we boast to be. Pay people just enough that they don't think about compensation and can stay focused on delivering excellence to the client and driving consistent revenue.

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

    Pros

    Highly skilled, collaborative colleagues
    Good relationships with most major vendors

    Cons

    The top leadership's desire to become a $B company through rapid acquisition had a negative effect on morale

    Advice to Management

    Spend less time buying unknown talent, and more time working to retain the quality people that have already made Hitachi Consulting their home.

    Pros

    The people and smart and collaborative. I have a lot of flexibility whether to travel or not (likely due to my specialized area). I am compensated fairly.

    Cons

    HCC is going through some growing pains due to multiple global acquisitions while also trying to grow the service lines outside of more classical ERP-type services.

    Pros

    Great people.
    Good culture in former Andersen cities.
    Up and coming practice. Strong leadership.

    Cons

    Value proposition has changed. Used to be a place that provided a culture of local work over travel. Now they have changed to a national model and no longer have p/l at the local market. Salaries for people who travel now have not been moved commensurate with value proposition change.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to leveraged model and make sure you have consistency in how people are working on engagements. SM's should not be doing SC work.
