    I have been working at Hitachi Consulting full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Varied clients, varied scope of work. Fair bit of freedom.

    Cons

    Way too much administrative overkill for PMs. Poor benefits package. Not much in the way of bonuses. Very poor communication - e.g. Organizational changes aren't announced

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ease up on the admin/overhead requirements. Revisit bonus plans and improve vacation allowances.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Hitachi Consulting for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Most people I interacted with were all good people. Very strong benefits package, vacation time and salary.

    Cons

    Highly stressful place. Rather than replace internally focused people who left, they just transferred work onto others. Everyone I tried to talk to was stressed all the time. Toxic environment overall. Work doesn't need to be that way as I have found since I left!

    I have been working at Hitachi Consulting full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Ideas and suggestions for process improvement are always welcome. Parent company (Hitachi Ltd) is committed to the growth of HCC through acquisitions that help round out our offerings. Local geo events help build community. Company puts an emphasis on local offices supporting charities. Work life balance is important. Benefits and company perks are great (discounts at client companies, nice offices, healthcare, time off, etc.)

    Cons

    Review process could be clearer on how one is rated among peers.
