    Pros

    Great place to start a consulting career from undergrad. The projects are pretty good, lots of travel (the thing you can do when you're young), and great introduction to IOT solutions. You can work from home Fridays which is nice.

    Cons

    Culture took a hit the past couple of years due to internal re-org.
    Have little control over project placements.
    Managers do not know how to teach best practices.

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

    Pros

    Talented, amazing people to work with. Virtual offices.

    Cons

    Poor decision making and foresight from leadership caused a no-notice freeze of salaries and no promotion pay/retroactive pay. They kept employees hanging for months on their raises, to inform them no retro/no raise two days before the pay cycle they were due to receive them. People are leaving en masse.

    Advice to Management

    I have no idea how you’ll fix this. Good luck.

    Pros

    Culture is incredible, people will go out of their way to help you succeed.

    Cons

    Not every PM cares about you as an individual, the bottom line and hitting time matters. Some people are asked to ghost hours worked. Also, people got promoted but raises were put on hold. This made me want to exit immediately. Loosing sight of employees.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are your product, make sure you are transparent and honest. Noone likes to be taken for a ride.

    I have been working at Hitachi Consulting full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They hire competent and hard-working individuals, benefits (healthcare/vision/PTO) are good, there is a good company culture, and work/life balance is great (probably above average).

    Cons

    High employee turnover rate. It is somewhat difficult to get promoted at the company, and salary increase is slow. Technical consultants make less than they would at another consulting firm. However, their way of making up for this is a good work/life balance.

    Pros

    The only good thing currently is the People

    Cons

    There is growing concerns about the stability of the firm especially after some significant financial decisions that impact people globally. Project pipeline is at an all time low and direct seems aimless at this time.

    Hitachi Consulting is going through a rough time that I hope gets better but right now this ship is sinking.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the signs. The recent financial decision could and should have been seen coming much sooner. Those on the lower rungs of the firm saw issues 10 miles away but yet again leadership was slow to act.

    canteen, seating, A/C, Coffee wending machine and phone at desk

    Cons

    worst, worst work environment, no respect for employees, bullying bosses, manipulating situation cunningly by bosses to forcibly move out somebody - over all the worst, worst work environment I have seen in my 22 years IT experience

    Pros

    Great people. That's about it.

    Cons

    Salary freeze for the entire company. Even all the people who busted their hump for hard earning promotions. Bonus was comical. Company appears to have serious financial issues that "surprised" executive leadership, just within the last few months. Dishonest in communication to employees.

    Advice to Management

    Operate in an honest and transparent manner. Your people are your strongest asset. Please treat them well if you want them to stay. The economy is thriving and IT spend is on the uptake. All other consulting firms are growing and expanding/opening new US offices. Get your act together before it's too late. People are already planning their exist strategy.

    Pros

    There are some people who genuinely want to do the best they can for the customer.

    Cons

    They are unfortunately outnumbered by others whose focus is different.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the customer.
