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

    Pros

    Develop relationships with great people
    Projects are interesting and provide personal growth opportunities
    Work/life balance good if you want to travel

    Cons

    New "pay for performance" plan doesn't pay and provides perverse incentives
    Leadership & HR out of touch
    Shift to solutions hemorrhaging money, no visibility into path to viability
    Probably hamstrung by oversight from Japan

    Advice to Management

    Admit defeat and sell to a competitor or give up on growth and focus on strengths in specialized areas that actually make money and have very talented people

    Pros

    Getting out of here real soon...Can't wait to align myself with a real company

    Cons

    Company is moving to solution based, but lack the vision to get there. Lost some good clients and accounts, hired a bunch of Core Consultants but didn't have work for them to do so they fired them. Many good people have been fired or quit on their own, but if you're good at sucking up to management, you'd be safe.

    Advice to Management

    Get together and come up with a strategy to move forward or hire people that are capable to lead.
