    Pros

    People that work there are amazing. Collaborative culture with strong local office culture. People actually like working with one another and the company supports multiple geo based culture events. Woman are fairly represented in the Consultant to Manager ranks. New CEO came into place and is quickly working to provide a strong direction (see Cons). He is bringing a new era to the company which has most people excited about our future.

    Cons

    In the pat leadership has lacked vision and business seems to be driven by private agendas not necessarily what is best for the business. Woman are under represented in Senior Manager to VP and non-existent at the EVP Level.

    Pros

    Great work/life balance, mostly good people

    Cons

    Sometimes very dis-engaged and unrealistic senior management. Hugely pay difference in salaries of employees of the same level across different practices.

    I have been working at Hitachi Consulting full-time

    Pros

    A good work/life balance for the most part. Generally competitive salaries considering the previous statement. Leadership is also generally competent and engaged with the staff.

    Cons

    There is an expectation of full time travel, which isn't totally contrary to other similar firms. There has been a change in some of the leadership so this will need to play itself out to determine whether the change in vision is going to pay dividends.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain communication with the staff on how the change in leadership and vision is playing out. What is working and what is not, transparency.

    I worked at Hitachi Consulting (More than a year)

    Pros

    Got Paid, decent but not great benefits

    Cons

    Got lost, they wanted me to learn a new software that I had no interest in. Had 20 plus years of experience with one ERP. No bonus, extremely non-value added review process. It wasn't the work that you did but the perception of the work you did that counted, whether you did it well had no bearing.

    Advice to Management

    More focus better pay.

    I have been working at Hitachi Consulting full-time

    Pros

    Great culture. Leadership truly fosters junior resources to get involved in activities outside of client work. It's a great place to get started in consulting but not to stay long-term.

    Cons

    Pay scale is horribly managed. New-hire resources with no experience are being hired at salaries well above consultants with multiple years of experience. When confronted about the issue, management did nothing to remedy the situation.

    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.
