    I have been working at Hitachi Solutions full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The company culture here is unbeatable. The upper management and fellow coworkers make this job worthwhile. I was nervous to take this position as I had very little experience in this field. Every person I have worked with while at Hitachi has gone above and beyond to make me feel welcome and to ensure I am set up to succeed. Upper Management is very down to Earth and will always have your back. Career Advancement opportunities are clearly laid out to you with clear steps on how to acheive your career goals. The benefits are great, salaries and bonuses are competitive, and an unlimited PTO policy is tough to beat.

    Cons

    It can be difficult to separate work and personal life if you choose to work remotely from home.

    I worked at Hitachi Solutions full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Staff are friendly and respectful.

    Cons

    Based on my exercise for the past many Many years that I had been in this company: this is not a good company to work. They sell the projects short, just to sell it. Then overload the staff to do the work, days, nights, weekends, holidays. There is no balance between work and life, in fact it is all work. No room to grow, unless you are connected. Not a good bonus structure as well. People are friendly, but almost half of them are not experienced enough, so the load falls on the other half. There are too many VPs in this company, Politics is in its fullest. If you have any issue or concern, it will not be heard. You are as good as a billing machine to charge clients.

    I have been working at Hitachi Solutions full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I have never worked in such a collaborative and fun environment. The work is challenging, but the people make it worth all the struggles. The people in the Greenville office and in the entire company are always willing to help if you reach out. The culture of Hitachi Solutions is truly more than I could have asked for, they even let me (encourage me to) bring my dog to the office!

    Cons

    If you are not organized or a self-starter, you are going to have a hard time here. The work is very much up to you to make it what you want. If you can't stay on top of your work, you will fall behind. The people that work here are what make Hitachi Solutions so great, that being said, they are all very hard workers and expect the same from you. The work life balance here is great, but taking on extra tasks will EASILY put you over time if you aren't careful.

    I have been working at Hitachi Solutions full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Hitachi Solutions has met my expectations from the interview process. The company culture is one of continual learning, improvement, and cooperation. Senior resources offer help freely, and management is committed to you improving not only as a consultant but also as a person. Work is a challenge every day and that leads to consistent growth. The organization offers opportunity for certification and advancement, with a well-thought-out development plan and career path clearly available. For each role, there is a list of skills and competencies, expectations around those skills, and training path and materials to improve those skills. This means Hitachi Solutions makes expectations clear and then provides resources to improve and meet those expectations. There is a significant effort towards teamwork and cooperation across departments and practices. Everyone is willing to take time away from their day to help you learn or solve a problem, because that's the behavior that was modeled to them. With so many highly intelligent, achievement-minded individuals, there is the risk of becoming competitive and cutthroat, but that doesn't happen here- everyone is "over themselves" and humble enough to put the team first. Finally, Hitachi Solutions is committed to being adaptable. Management is quick to accept feedback and change when something isn't working or when an area of improvement is identified, even from resources who are brand new.

    Cons

    Working at Hitachi Solutions is hard. There are exciting problems and challenges to overcome every day. It's not for the faint of heart, or for people looking for the jet-setting comfortable business travel lifestyle. You definitely have to put in the work. Otherwise, the only other difficulty is that sometimes it's difficult to know who to work with on the admin side of things. There are people world wide in all different time zones, which makes Hitachi Solutions great, but it sometimes complicates knowing who you need that help from. Once you figure it out, they're very helpful and problems get solved quickly.
