More Pros and Cons

  1. "The Pursuit of Quality"

    Pros

    Challenging work, projects, and clients. If you have the right skillset or want to build a skillset, this is a great place to do it. Those who have the confidence and ability to ask for what they want will get it (as is the way life goes, right?)

    Cons

    There is a perceived inconsistency between management styles, but this is typical of any organization and internal efforts are being made to provide more consistency.

    Advice to Management

    Quality will always win over politics. If senior management can focus on hiring the best and keeping them (us) happy, then the company will grow, business will increase, and revenues will follow.

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

    Pros

    I greatly enjoy the leadership and activities in my local office. There is a clear progression path for junior level employees and wonderful learning opportunities.

    Cons

    Do not get a lot of control over where you get staffed - particularly at the lower levels

    Advice to Management

    Leadership could more clearly convey how hard its working for its employees in its communications. Sometimes its dedication to internal efforts isn't highlighted as much as it should be and gets lost in the shuffle of other corporate initiatives.

  3. "new hire"

    Pros

    This company is everything you could want in a first job. I was debating between a few offers and took this because of the holistic exposure I would gain and the opportunity to learn. The culture here is unlike any and it's a dream job for a first job out of college. The leadership takes you under their wing and mentors you voluntarily. There are endless opportunities to shine. I will thrive here.

    Cons

    There are no cons.

    Pros

    The people provide a great working atmosphere.

    Cons

    A smaller firm trying to compete with the larger firms, competitive pay is hard to come by.

    Advice to Management

    Business decisions should be transparent regardless of what level the employee is


  5. "Positive Place to Work"

    Pros

    Opportunities to try different types of projects
    Many opportunities for training/learning
    Great people to work with

    Cons

    At times (depending on project assignment), work/life balance can be difficult
    Across all of our locations, levels are not equal (meaning a Senior Consultant in one location doesn't have the same core skills as a Senior Consultant in another location)

    Advice to Management

    Keep lines of communication open

    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.

    Pros

    Great culture, strong leadership, and solid vision.

    Cons

    The growth is surpassing the infrastructure and internal processes.

    Support the consultants in the field with better support mechanisms.

    I have been working at Hitachi Consulting full-time (More than 10 years)

    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.

    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.
