    I worked at Hitachi Consulting (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The great thing about Hitachi Consulting USED to be the people but unfortunately the between leadership not supporting revenue generating practices and eventually shutting them down and great people leaving or getting fired. It's like a ghost town.

    Cons

    The Executive Leadership Team and their lack of focus. Putting all their energy in a new strategy while completely abandoning what made Hitachi work instead of a phased approach over a period of time is a rookie mistake.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together. You have to understand the business you want to be in in order to be successful. Good luck. So sad to see the ruins that are left of what a great company.

    I worked at Hitachi Consulting full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    My immediate "career advisor" is awesome Work from home Flexibility. I think they want to be better, but are just having a really hard time getting there. The offices are nice.

    Cons

    My immediate "career advisor" works very hard to insure we are happy and productive. Unfortunately her hands are tied. The corporate strategy is all over the board. The right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing. The social innovation vision has not come to reality and they do not have any team in place to truly support any vision. There is no sales strategy or direction. The internal processes are completely broken. It's very difficult to get anything done systems. Horrible on boarding and unproductive. Lack of leadership that will be held accountable. Lots of layoffs, but not enough from the senior leaders that have been making the mistakes.

    Advice to Management

    First things first. If you're going to be One Hitachi, merge. It's ridiculous. We are competing against each other all the time. Hire leaders that have clear expectations and get things done. Too much managing up.
