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

    Pros

    Great co-workers when you do get to see them in the office on Fridays.
    A fun work environment with committees that plan events and activities that gets everyone together.
    The management in the Chicago office is great, especially once you get to know them and they see the type of work you are capable of.

    Cons

    Many things have changed over the last few years. After a big layoff, many other people left the company.

    Now that they are hiring again, it seems like the company is heading very much in an IT consulting world - nothing bad but anyone that was there before hoping for management consulting work is left to either adapt or leave the company.

    The biggest con that every Core consultant will agree with is the annual review process and promotions/progressions in the company. No matter how hard someone works, all they really care about is how long you have been with the company when it comes to being promoted. Once people learn that, they start to work bare minimum just to reach the 'time' milestones. This is completely unfair for those that go above and beyond in client, company, and committee work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep improving the review process and what it takes to be promoted, otherwise all the hard working employees will leave for a company that will appreciate their work.

    I worked at Hitachi Consulting full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fantastic people, resourceful project teams that provide a great deal of exposure to new industries for new consultants. The strong backing of Hitachi Ltd. and many partners in the ERP space. Easygoing culture that values the work-life balance very highly.

    Cons

    No clear path of progression for new hires, when not staffed you are left to your own, no traction on selling the new "solutions" model yet

    Advice to Management

    Provide training for skills required to deliver your solutions going forward. Training. Training. Training.

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

    Pros

    Interesting and challenging projects. Leadership recent vision to build 'state-of-the-art' Go-To-Market solutions is exciting. The company is setting the bar high on hiring and retaining best talent, especially at the Management level.

    Cons

    Compensation and bonuses could be more market competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. If HCC were trading in the stock market, I would buy long.

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

    Pros

    Great job for single professionals who want to travel for work and solve a variety of problems for a variety of clients. Work-life balance is great because you can work from home, or anywhere, meaning the clients site, or at the airport when on work travel. Consulting is a life-style, so that means you can be working whenever, but still have a life outside of work too.

    Cons

    Work can be slow during different times of the year, meaning you really have to reach out to PM's to give you more work

    -Company does not offer tuition reimbursement if you are in a graduate/MBA program
