    Hitachi Group is very strong with great reputation.

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

    Pros

    Everything, ... except the insecurity of top management and lack of revenue generating work. The place is good, and you get to dance, sing, play sports - if you are into that sort of thing, still.

    Cons

    Let me be clear - this review is not for Hitachi, but for Hitachi Consulting. For middle management, it is a terrible place. Months spent, and still no revenue generating work. Many clients have left already and people have been laid off. Now, bare minimum projects run. No plan for growth in terms of size of the company, as intended by the CEO. It is 2017, and digitization is not any of the focus points - too far behind the world. Mostly, driven by designation loving, insecure top management. Stay away, or not. If you love to kiss behind of people, please do join.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing. Until top management resigns, this company cannot be favored.

    Please learn from the global multinationals before claiming your organization as a global company.

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

    Pros

    1. Challenging working environment with highly intelligent, driven and passionate people.
    2. Varied opportunities depending on your specialization.
    3. Autonomy.
    4. Travel opportunities.
    5. Average benefits.

    Cons

    1. Lacks a typical office culture since the consolidation of offices.
    2. Exploitation of professionals entering from industry in terms of offered compensation.
    3. 'Paying your dues' kind of mentality as opposed to value add.
    4. Top heavy corporate structure. This is unfortunately the nature of consulting and other companies like Accenture and Deloitte are structured similarly. Nothing new here with Hitachi Consulting.
    5. Relationship based development and progression. Simply put; if your direct lead has solid ties to top level leadership your career progression is almost a guarantee. Obviously you need to do great work but even if you do progression requires both project based value add + strong relationships with the right people.

    Advice to Management

    1. Provide work spaces to staff who work remotely. Specifically in the geographies where the company has no office.
    2. Hire for relevant technical skills.
    3. Without a motivated core, the company will suffer. Winning means providing incentives for everyone especially the core.
    4. Provide better financial support for training and continued education.

  8. "Innovative, flexible employer"

    Pros

    Freedom and simple management, with flexibility to get things done. There is a can do attitude with lots of opportunities to work on new technologies.

    Cons

    Freedom also means you have to be self-sufficient, and a self starter. Some processes make it feel like a much larger organisation than it really is.

    Advice to Management

    None.
