Senior Consultant II (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – December 3, 2016
Pros: You change projects frequently (yearly?) so you never get bored or stale Frequent breaks between projects
Cons: You are judged primarily on how many hours you bill in a given year - if you are not on a project for a period of time you will not get a favorable review You have little to no control over being placed on a project Travel is just part of the job Customer satisfaction is a very small part of your rating
Senior Consultant (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – November 30, 2016
Overall, provides a balanced work/life culture. People are very nice. Future vision is up in the "air" and career paths are not defined. In addition, I do not believe their pay is competitive with the market.
Since joining Hitachi Consulting, my journey of acquiring knowledge has gathered great momentum. Working in Hitachi completely transformed my life, i did rigorous training in Oracle tech apps and various big data technologies. Apart from it's good training curriculum, Hitachi has a very friendly work environment where anyone can thrive. I always consider myself to be fortunate enough being a part of Hitachi Consulting. Moreover there was no communication gap, be it in the case of a fresher and the higher management. And i got to learn a great deal of things working in a crucial project.
It is a world class professional company provides lots of opportunities for employee to grow.

Manager (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – June 13, 2016
Hitachi needs to change their review process. When a person is reviewed by people who don't know them, the results are not accurate. This behavior does not promote leaders. It promotes a gang of "yes men" and an environment of "group think". It does not reward people for thinking out of the box.
As a consultant you are exposed to a variety of companies and can solve many different problems.
Senior Project Manager (Consultant) (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – April 19, 2016
Hitachi Consulting is a consulting company trying to find its place in the consulting world. On one hand they want to drive revenues up but not willing to invest in the infrastructure that will make them long term successful. In the past reductions, Mid-level Consulting has been removed. In order to compensate, they promote quickly within talent that must stretch quickly to meet quality and delivery goals. Mid-Level Consulting is the foundation of a growing consultancy as they ensure quality, delivery, mentorship of new talent and support of the sales and upper management.
Great company to work for. I have worked for Hitachi for over 2.5 years, I have had great experience working for a major Aerospace and Defense client. Experience talking with customers and worked on multiple JAVA Enterprise applications, learned new skills and met a lot of new people. Great corporate environment.
Occassional Free Lunches and Dinners, Good Health Benefits
Hitachi Consulting is a good company to start consulting career with. There are several VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE senior consultants to learn from. But once you feel comfortable, you may want to step out and see what else is out in the industry
Vice President (Current Employee) – Houston – October 7, 2015
Fun work place with supportive management. Not all about the numbers but how you personally grow and develop. Decent amount of red tape and politics, but this is expected of a big company. The most enjoyable part of the job was working alongside my colleagues and learning from them. The office started to get crowded as the company grew and it was more difficult to get to know the new people. There was a lot of variety in what I did each day, ranging from the monotonous tasks to new projects that were challenging and exciting.
