    Pros

    I enjoyed how professional yet personal the employees were. Dynamic atmosphere where I sincerely felt that people cared about me in all senses

    Cons

    My position was rescinded due to the difficult year of transition that the company experienced. This was a disappointment but an understandable situation.

    Advice to Management

    Wishing the company all the best in this year of transition and change.

    I worked at Hitachi Consulting full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Very nice people to work with.
    - Poor attitudes are not commonplace.
    - A lot of independence.
    - You can have a good work life balance on most projects.
    - Old business model was unsustainable so it seems like they've realized that and are trying to turn the company in a more sustainable direction.

    Cons

    - So few projects to get on to the point that it almost isn't consulting.
    - Lack of respect for technical employees. You try to be a technology consulting company, but you don't pay your technical people. This simply does not work.
    - They moved to a solutions based company when they had almost no internal talent to make solutions. You can't have technology clueless VPs coming up with business concepts and expecting that to produce significant revenue. This transition appears to have been handled poorly.
    - Poor pay

    Advice to Management

    Cut more jobs of middle managers who don't really provide value to your new solution based business (this includes VPs, Directors, Managers) and pay people much who actually have technical skills.

    Start interviewing testing for technical skills much more heavily. Not just a behavioral interview for someone who will be programming every day. This is crucial for your success.

    You need to get good at hiring technical talent and paying them market value. Connect with a legit tech recruiting company to get talent. You've shown the inability to attract good technical talent.

    Come up with specific areas of focus of new technology. Don't say you're targeting 4 different trillion dollar industries (that really means nothing!). Decide on focused areas within broad categories like IOT or Cloud. Align your company vertically so that you know exactly what specific markets your attacking and make sure you have the talent to provide good solutions in those areas. Stop hiring broad talent for broad possibilities of work.

    Great teams. Was very family like and supportive.

    You destroyed our Celerant culture...and probably forgot that a Consulting company success is heavily depended on the people.
