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

    Pros

    Work and life balance oriented.
    I didn't get any after hours calls, not single weekend work.
    All were planned at very reasonable pace and all also were delivered on time - so team and self satisfaction factor was very high.

    Cons

    some strange to Silicon Valley security restrictions that come from Japan HQ.
    You want to move fast and access and integrate as much as possible, but all work can be done in secure / DMZ lab - just productivity loss.

    Advice to Management

    Separate corp sensitive info from development.
