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

    Pros

    Work life balance and decent benefits

    Cons

    When your employer is not truthful ; it's time to leave. Hitachi deceives employees with their so called bonus plan. Bonuses have not been paid out in more than 2 years. So many people have left and there is no one left to deliver projects. Sales strategy is - "Sell solutions and make your numbers." Yet another new sales leadership team has been brought in and they are useless and cannot get change to happen. The entire executive and leadership team could leave tomorrow and nothing would change. Bottom line - this ship has sailed.

    Advice to Management

    I'm not sure what anyone in management actually does so no advice.

    I worked at Hitachi Consulting full-time

    Pros

    Diversity of potential client work

    Potential is there for visionary work due to backing from Hitachi Global, but only if they can figure out how to execute.

    Cons

    Poor execution of CEO's and Hitachi Global's vision by VP/SVP leadership

    Very poor communication of decisions around compensation, bonus, etc...

    Deteriorating culture

    Advancement way too inconsistent and way too reliant on alliance advocacy and participation in internal pet projects rather than quality/impact of client work.

    Advice to Management

    I didn't want to rate Hitachi Consulting one star because there are still a few really good people there and it's not yet a total dumpster fire. But, it's headed that way.

    When a major practice goes through significant sustained workforce reduction due to an inability to staff good people at major clients, and this happens in one of the highest growth industries in a sub 4% unemployment economy, you've got issues.

    When you're local upstart competitors are poaching many of your best people and they are the ones landing on all the "best places to work" lists and you're not, you've got some issues.

    Leadership from Senior Director to just below the CEO need to put a stop to the unfounded arrogance about Hitachi Consulting. It is not currently a good place to be. Hopefully they can turn it around.

    I worked at Hitachi Consulting full-time

    Pros

    This is a great place to learn and develop your skills. They have a good balance of community activities and events to get people involved outside of work. I had the opportunity to work in several teams to gain a wide variety of experience as a developer.

    Cons

    Can be a heavy work load at times. Closer to deadlines people can stay late to meet the goals for clients. However, the teams were very passionate on their work and willing to help out.

    Advice to Management

    Keep providing fun events and promoting the positive environment to balance out when work load is heavy.
