    I worked at Hitachi Consulting full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Low expectations of employees. Wide range of projects and technologies. Decent opportunities to training.

    Cons

    Just not a compelling or interesting place to work. A lot of "old school" VPs who are not interested in creative ideas; only in making their numbers. Hitachi is still focused on ERP which is a dying service. There are very few projects which are interesting and even fewer people that know how to sell them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement a "no jerk" policy.

    Inconsistent culture. Hard to get collaboration on national projects. National pursuit of business Typically leads to a lot of travel.
