    Pros

    The people. You will meet and work with some of the best minds in management and IT consulting

    Cons

    New CEO has a vision to move away from management consulting and more into a products/solutions company. The transition has been difficult. Losing lots of talent.

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

    Pros

    I have been with Hitachi Consulting for over 15 years. Couldn't stand the leadership, but didn't have to deal directly with the top.

    However, we now have new leadership and I hope it will make a difference (I gave the leadership 3 stars for now since we just changed).

    Cons

    Work/Life balance is always difficult. It is primarily your responsibility to set boundaries. If you always say "YES" to tasks or answer email in the evening/weekend, you are contributing to a poor work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Quit trying to buy companies and focus on a different way to grow us.

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

    Pros

    Salary is decent
    18 days of vacation plus the days between Christmas and New Year's as holiday
    You never get bored - constantly bouncing from project to project

    Cons

    As a consultant, you are graded almost exclusively on the hours that you bill
    You have no control on being billable and getting on a project
    Some years I'm a walk on water god - other years I'm a total slacker - and I have no control on either

    Advice to Management

    Remove utilization from the core employees' annual goals and move it to the sales team, where it belongs. *THEY* should be responsible for getting the available work force staffed and billable.
