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

    Pros

    My peers and project leadership were wonderful
    The projects were engaging and allowed me to stretch beyond a typical undergrad role

    Cons

    The shift to a Global Solutions Company has been painful, and frankly, poorly led. The company is quickly losing valuable employees who can easily find comparable roles with better pay and more stability

    I have been working at Hitachi Consulting full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This company provides an opportunity for everyone, at every level to lead. When you work here you'll be surrounded by some of the smartest, most highly capable professionals in professional services. There are lots of opportunities to work
     and collaborate directly with leadership and the women in leadership positions are absolutely amazing.

    Cons

    The change in strategic direction has made the climate chaotic and anxious. The decision to move to virtual offices and close offices added to the sense of doom and insecurity.

    Hard work and dedication isn't readily recognized and rewarded, which is a shame and is turning the culture and spirit of the workforce sour and defeated.

    Advice to Management

    Heart is in the right place but take a moment to hear what your workforce is saying so you can stop the exodus before you lose your people and your way.

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

    Pros

    Pay was good.
    My boss was great.
    Good insurance
    Good training for entry level hires.
    Nice office in the city.
    Good parties each quarter, after status meeting.

    Cons

    No culture. More like hired guns running in different directions.
    I didn't think the org was focused on employees experience/retention.
    The Dallas office has most of the staff. Other office's projects get staffed with people Dallas is unwilling to fire.

    Advice to Management

    Survey your employees and ask them what they need. Manage bad performers out. It will improve the culture.

    Pros

    Great People
    Good Culture
    Good work life balance, better than other firms
    Decent compensation
    Decent growth and opportunity for advancement
    Fun, albeit a bit forced, culture

    Cons

    Tedious and Unclear Annual Review Process
    Sink or Swim environment, not too harsh but you've got to be a driven individual to succeed
    Having a good mentor is somewhat luck based

    Advice to Management

    Divert some resources to internal mentoring; fully staffed employees have trouble kicking off and then maintaining initiatives while keeping work life balance. Or allocate some billable hours and get successful employees willing to cooperate to dedicate some time to it. A vague promise of it positively impacting annual performance reviews isn't enough to encourage sacrificing dozens of hours personal time to organize material, logistics, and cut through red tape.

    New CEO has a vision to move away from management consulting and more into a products/solutions company. The transition has been difficult. Losing lots of talent.
