    I worked at Hitachi full-time

    Pros

    Benefits and it's a paycheck!

    Cons

    Blatant favoritism, harassment and retaliation. Management is woefully incompetent, immature and bad behavior is encouraged to continue by upper management. Suggestions and new ideas are shot down if it's not from one of the "chosen" ones. No one takes responsibility instead it's a big blame game.

    I worked at Hitachi full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Coworkers and mid-management were good. Strong engineering group.

    Cons

    Director and Exec level have poor grounding in actual PM. Poor plant support. Bias toward Japanese OEMs. All drawings must go through Japan for final release and it WILL hurt your timing (especially on US OEMs).
