    Pros

    Top notch people provide a stimulating professional environment and make it enjoyable. I have been able to work on a variety of projects that have built up my skills. I have seen a lot of increased focus on training and regimented skill development over the past year. Recently, HCC went from geography based teams to technology and management consulting teams that I see as a positive for my future career development. The changes were the result of a new Strategic plan to grow significantly over the next 5 years.

    Cons

    Dust needs to settle on all of the changes the past year, while I think they will be good in the long run, they have created much turmoil. Some people prefered the geography model. I personally enjoy travel and prefer to work on projects wherever the best opportunities are located. In a few years this may be a negative but for now it is not a problem for me.

    Advice to Management

    No more org changes for a while - stick to the significant growth strategy.

    Pros

    * Hitachi Consulting has encouraged development of new consulting practices which will help us grow and differentiate ourselves.
    * Majority of the employees are smart, hard working talented people that are very interested in helping clients solve real problems
    * Most employees are good at collaborating with each other in order to provide the most value for our clients

    Cons

    * Leadership team members (at times) seem like they are not all aligned. This can create competition among teams for staffing and credit etc. This is definitely getting better with the new org model of 2010 - I am seeing much more cooperation among teams now that the geo/market offices do not control account relationships and staffing.

    Advice to Management

    Pressure from leadership to form more of a pyramid structure (less top heavy, more bottom heavy) is not always consistent with the level of expertise that some of our clients expect/desire/need. Leadership needs to be careful to not adopt the "Andersen model" of the 80's in the 2010 decade.

    Pros

    Company is serious about personal development and training, strong training program which is unusual for a consulting firm today
    Business is growing which means more opportunity for career development

    Cons

    Company is experiencing organic growth this year and resources are highly utilized right now which is great but need to hire more people in select areas soon or run the risk of burn-out

    Advice to Management

    Consulting core needs to get more integrated into the practice areas
    Company is very community oriented but needs to do a better job of communicating externally about all of the great things we do in our local communities
