    Average pay. Lack of travel opportunities for some departments, but is to be expected with certain lines of busines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Staff should be able to grow career skills with collaborative projects across offices.

    I worked at Hitachi Consulting

    Pros

    Really great people work to with. Exceptional attention and dedication to community service and outreach. Great benefits and PTO/Holiday time off policy.

    Cons

    Went through a total organizational and business model change from regional based to national based, New CEO and the majority of the Executive Management team is now comprised of the good ol boys from Arthur Anderson days who are not in touch with the workforce. Appears that they are working their own individual agendas and not the welfare of the company and the employees who work there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You killed the great culture and vibe of the company when you decided to move to a national based operating model and you lost what was unique about Hitachi Consulting and a lot of great people in return.

    Pros

    It gives you a paycheck.

    Cons

    There are too many items to list here. But in short the executive leadership only cares about cost cutting measures. Employees work hard all year to go through the annual review process (GARM) this will ensure how their raise and bonus will look like , but focusing on the employee and his/her development is NOT a priority for leadership.

    So if you aspire in working hard and being rewarded for your efforts - this company is not for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to compete with big companies like Deloitte and IBM. If you pay peanuts you get monkeys. If you treat your employees poorly don't expect a ROI.
