    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.

    Hours - Depending on the project and deadlines, you might work 60+ hours (however 45 hours is the norm)

    This was a good company; good collaborative atmosphere; Company stimulates your development and progress throughout your career. line in any consulting company with 100% travel, you have to be ready to travel extensively.

    Management need to increase the budget for all educational activities for employees: cover classes in employee's line of development, reimburse for take exams, etc..
