    Pros

    The Hitachi network of companies have access to some of the most interesting technology anywhere. Can leverage to provide what client's need (not limited to what we offer).

    Cons

    The Consulting group's ambition is to leverage solutions to solve client problems. In reality much of what is still be done is selling technology offering. Closing of local office in DC (and other places) makes it more difficult to create a "community" to leverage in local markets

    Pros

    In the current time it is very difficult to find a pros for Hitachi Consulting. They don't have any vision and plan to draw a vision.

    Leadership and its technical abilities. Not a technology company. All fools in a company

    Advice to Management

    Just Leave the company alone.

    Pros

    I really thought this company sounded great. The interviewers were very friendly only thing it too 5 interviews this was for College Station Texas Location

    Cons

    This company Ghost people! They took 5 interviews with different people not one had the courtesy to call or email you back they leave you hanging with false hopes. After you take time out for them. People when they ghost you majority of times they discriminating to avoid a law suit or the hold on to your app if one of their applicants dont come through its very disrespectful and rude.

    Advice to Management

    You need to have the courtesy and at least email the generated reject letter saying you went with another candidate. You leave people hanging its stressful enough applying just because you have a job right now you can fall in same category one day as we all have

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

    Pros

    Hitachi is great at hiring caring, genuine, and passionate people.

    Cons

    Severe lack of communication from upper management before major events happen. Promotions are arbitrarily given and based on a budgetary restrictions (if 2 people did the same great work, then they would find the one flaw to promote one over the other). There are several large clients that funnel in consultants, which provides a high risk for being pigeonholed into an industry or type of work that you are not interested in. Constant communication on what we need to do in order to get staffed, but when you do it, nothing happens.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better and do what you've advertised. If you advertise the company as a place to learn in different industries and roles, then provide your employees the ability to do so.
