    13. If you have worked on 10 projects and feedback on 1 project is not good you will be DNM.
    14. Join if want to Spoil your future.

    Advice to Management

    No advice as they think like King and actual reason of such a bad culture.
    They are the policy maker and that's why there is policy that Employee utilization is one of the main part of appraisal.
    And it's Management or Company failure to give the enough work or utilization to employees.
    Unfortunately employees has to face the consequences of less utilization rather then such management held responsiable for this failure.

    Pros

    They support your growth and provide you with opportunities. But you need to make sure you watch out for those and grab them when you can. As everywhere else, hardly anything will be offered to you on a silver platter.

    Cons

    For a company making so much money, the bonus scheme is not rewarding. It's only 3% of your salary when you're a consultant or a senior consultant. And that's spread over the quarters...

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that if you place someone in a new role, they're happy in it. Listen to your workforce.

    The people. You will meet and work with some of the best minds in management and IT consulting

    Cons

    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.

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

    Pros

    Employee Friendly policies by HR for Insurance, Facilities and car lease.
    Good Campus and pleasant environment.
    Anything not related to Career , i.e. amenities are very good

    Cons

    Flawed Appraisal . Sudden change in rating mechanism at the end of Financial year i.e. in 2016 rating was from 1-5. 5 being top performer and 1 being Not meeting expectations.
    In January 2017, they suddenly changed from 1 to 3 . 3 Being Excellent and 1 being needs support. 3 is very rare.
    Beware, if you are an excellent performer , in the project and have not contributed anything outside project, then you are given rating as 1 on flimsy grounds, more so in Microsoft Practice and given an development plan (more likely an exit plan). Most of them are rated as 1 , in-spite of great contributions to project
    Microsoft practice in Senior management has Headstrong attitude. The person has scant respect for resources. Talent review discussions are farce, and more driven by this top honcho in Microsoft practice.
    Don't see any visibility in the projects. Think twice before joining, even if you are offered 200% pay hike.

    Advice to Management

    Dear Mr CEO,Please take a secret anonymous survey internally, on whom they think are giving a raw deal to employees in terms of ratings during Appraisal, with Ad hoc notions, especially in Microsoft practice. You will get an answer

    Cons

    Operating model is constantly changing
    Executives don't have a specific enough plan for executing the strategy

    Advice to Management

    Build a very specific plan for transformation. Decide if you are going to be a consulting or solution business and take the necessary actions to transform the business. If you are a solution business you need to burn the consulting boats.
