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

    Pros

    Was a great place to work until they changed from consulting to product company

    Cons

    Ran out of steam, major layoffs in October. Still struggling good people are looking to leave.

    Advice to Management

    Do better planning. Laying off new employees within 1 month of starting does not bode well.

    I worked at Hitachi Consulting full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    My immediate "career advisor" is awesome Work from home Flexibility. I think they want to be better, but are just having a really hard time getting there. The offices are nice.

    Cons

    My immediate "career advisor" works very hard to insure we are happy and productive. Unfortunately her hands are tied. The corporate strategy is all over the board. The right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing. The social innovation vision has not come to reality and they do not have any team in place to truly support any vision. There is no sales strategy or direction. The internal processes are completely broken. It's very difficult to get anything done systems. Horrible on boarding and unproductive. Lack of leadership that will be held accountable. Lots of layoffs, but not enough from the senior leaders that have been making the mistakes.

    Advice to Management

    First things first. If you're going to be One Hitachi, merge. It's ridiculous. We are competing against each other all the time. Hire leaders that have clear expectations and get things done. Too much managing up.

    I worked at Hitachi Consulting as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Hitachi is a well known company.

    Cons

    Once you're on a project, they do not provide any assistance to the consultant. Their concern is only the company and number of contractors they can place there. They lie about project work requirements, so you'll go in expecting to work based on the provided requirements. You may end up doing something completely different than your expertised line of work. They also do third party and do not find the consultants. Therefore, the rate is cut, so all parties get a share. If you voice your concerns too much, they'll be quick to cut your contract by any means necessary, including bold faced lies.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to keep your clients happy, then you need to keep the consultants happy, to drop your high turnover. Hence, the reason why large clients continue to replace you with better vendors.

    Advice to Management

    You destroyed our Celerant culture...and probably forgot that a Consulting company success is heavily depended on the people.

    Pros

    - Great People. They are pretty much why I've stayed.
    - Comparable benefits (Health / Work-Life Balance / Retirement) are right around the industry standard.
    - Challenging work, with flexibility.

    Cons

    - Not much room for advancement.
    - Pay is slightly less than what you would find in a similar position elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with the changes (technology / tools / etc.), and make sure that transparency is your ultimate goal.

    I worked at Hitachi Consulting (More than a year)

    Pros

    It was a job for which I received a paycheck.

    Cons

    I found it to be an extremely toxic environment. Common phrase used was that this was a "churn and burn" culture. I preferred to work in a strong team culture, which is why I decided to move on to another company.
