If you have friends there you can get places.
Human Resources/Recruiting (Former Employee), DallasAugust 26, 2014
Pros: knowledge
Cons: everything is all over the place, lack of structure, expect you to just figure things out
There is a lot of favoritism especially in the HR/Recruiting group. It's like a revolving door... turn over is high.

Good culture, people, terrible upper management
Management (Former Employee), Chicago, ILJune 6, 2014
Pros: people, culture, flexibility
Cons: compensation, poor leadership, lack of direction and strategy, lack of training
This company started great back in the old days when HC was formed. A bunch of greedy and incompetent executives have run this company to the ground. Lack of strategy, vision for the future, poor compensation, too many acquisitions, heavy focus on old technologies, and not to mention clueless VPs, poor leadership have caused much dissatisfaction among – more... top talent. Compensation is probably the worst compare to other consulting firms. – less

Great place to start a career
IT Consultant (Current Employee), Seattle, WaFebruary 19, 2014
Pros: support network, people
Cons: travel requirements, compensation for c and scs
Hitachi Consulting has great people working for them. One Team is a great way to describe the best aspects of working for HCC. Awesome support network and resources. However, compensation could be more competitive. Typically with most IT Consultancies travel requirements are high and if you are okay with that then this is a great place to be.

Great people, great culture, opportunities
Global Internal Communications Director (Current Employee), Denver, COFebruary 10, 2014
Pros: company 'shut down' over holidays. generous vacation allowance
Cons: this isn't a place to 'coast', even though there is no 'up or out' policy.
Hitachi Consulting is a great place to start or develop your career. It retains its 'small firm' feel despite now operating in 24 countries with over 4000 employees. Culture is extremely supportive, and employees care deeply about doing a good job for their clients, whether internal or external. Employees give 120%, with many people checking email 7 – more... days a week. Coworkers are receptive to supporting each other, there are few politics and it is not a ruthless environment, even though people are ambitious.
Hardest part of the job - turning off your email. Most enjoyable - coworkers and opportunity to take an idea and run with it. – less

If you're interested in consulting and are good at what you do, look elsewhere....
Senior Consultant (Former Employee), Denver CO.July 1, 2013
Pros: locations all over the world, variety of consulting services
Cons: tangled mess of acquisitions, lack of leadership, micromanagement, corporate hierarchy, focus on getting new clients not retaining loyal clients
At Hitachi, you're either a senior professional that's well-established and does little or no work, or you're a young recent-graduate that's not established and does all the work - there's no in-between; meaning there's little room for advancement. It's hard to get noticed at a company as large as Hitachi because you're truly just a number that has – more... an earnings statement attached to it. If you do fall in the middle somewhere, you'll be asked to train the recent grads so they can eventually deem you as 'expendable' and transfer you or lay you off since the recent grads demand a lower pay-rate than the more experienced staff.
The company has inherited a number of loyal clients via numerous mergers and acquisitions, and the clients quickly cancel their contracts because there's little focus on retaining current clientele. Hitachi's focus is on new clients and it shows in how you're treated as an employee. If you are fluent in the technical aspects of your job and keep the clients happy, you'll go no where at Hitachi. If you know nothing about your clients needs but are a good salesperson, you'll go far at Hitachi.
For these reasons, I decided to seek other opportunities shortly after my company was acquired by Hitachi. But, if you're good at sales, appreciate micromanagement, and enjoy a corporate culture, you will enjoy working for Hitachi Consulting. – less

The company constantly grew with some great people
Manager (Former Employee), Dallas, TXMay 8, 2013
As a consulting firm, there are no typical days. Hitachi offers solutions from design to maintenance spaning many industries.

I learned things from Hitachi's project methodology, improved team leadership skills, business process managent processes and tools, project management methodology, business intelligence functionality, building use cases, etc.

Most – more... of the new projects afforded the pportunity to meet new people (co-workers and business associates). The co-workers were always enriching as there was new talents, personalities and the opportunity to learn from someone new.

The hardest part of the job included working with some clients that did not want to change or did not want to work with consultants. Getting the opportunity to work on the sales aspects was also the hardest part.

The most enjoyable part of my job were meetng new people and learning new technology and ways to work with the clients. – less

Its has great management and leadership. The only downfall is that the work varies significantly across geographies and campus hires should prepare for some time on the bench.

Overall, it fosters a great work environment.

Analyst (Current Employee), Addison, TXNovember 13, 2012
Pros: quarterly meetings are fun, good co-workers
Cons: outsourcing everthing, many issues with new oracle system, little communication from mgt, little opportunity for advancement
Great location, good people to work with, growing company. Company was doing well the first few years, then decided to outsource as much as possible to try and save money. Some things went ok, but others had many many issues and still do years later. Some management does not keep their employees well informed of what is going on in the business, and – more... that makes employees feel like they are kept in the dark. If you're looking for advancement this is not the place! The support services area is such a small part of the company, that you'll be lucky to get promoted once in 4 years. – less

Used and let go
Senior HR Specialist (Current Employee), Dallas, TXNovember 7, 2012
Pros: positive work enviornment, office space. good pay for the work
Cons: no leadership; accountability does not exist.
Originally interviewed for an HR Business Partner. Was then told I was considered for a position they haven't even titled or created a job description for.
Hired as a Sr. HR Specialist as a 3 month temp, although I was told the position was full time.
Dropped into a position as a reporting person for HR details. My predecessor left 4 months earlier – more... and there were no process in place to create the over 14 required reports and yearly reports.
My first month and a half was used to reverse engineer the reports with no direction, using HR systems that no training was provided for.
The hiring manager had no clue on how any of the work was done.
Was then told that the work I do has been farmed out to the HRIS department and I will need to train them how to do the reports. – less

Hitachi Consulting has its moments
Staff (Former Employee), Dallas, TXSeptember 29, 2012
Pros: great people to work with; looser environment for a corporate company
Cons: constantly changing operating model; too vp heavy
Overally, the executives are seemingly out of touch with the day-to-day activities of the consultants/staff. They keep non-producing VPs around too long. They constantly change operating models and rename groups rather than focusing on getting sales. The people you work with are great but the pay is below average and it can be a political environment--if – more... you're a favorite, then your job is safe despite your actual contribution. – less

Niche provider failing to be more
Sr. Manager (Former Employee), MidwestMarch 3, 2012
Pros: it's consulting
Cons: management, back-stabbing culture, qualifications, technology expertise
This organization is a combination of Grant Thornton, Andersen IP/people, and a mess of other acquisitions (most recently Sierra Atlantic Indian Bodyshop).

Retention is poor, culture is flawed, and underlying business is supported by relationships at Nintendo, Canon, and other Japanese accounts.

Great place to work
Senior consultant (Current Employee), HyderabadMay 15, 2014
Pros: free doctor consultation
Cons: employees turnover
Hitachi Consulting is an excellent working place filled with happiness and joy. Harmony, Sincerity and Pioneering spirit drives the company to successes. It is a diamond partner of Oracle and serves the best consulting experiences to the customers. It delivers better results and better performance.

A typical day is reaching office by 9:30 am, wish – more... the colleagues, check the e-mails. Then give international call to the consultant at the onsite and get the required tasks to be completed at the end of the day. Take a web conference to understand the processes of the project. Take a break to go to cafeteria and have some fun talks to release the work stress. In the evening, after spending around 9 hours in office, send status mail to the reporting manager and get back home through the company transportation.

The scope of learning in Hitachi consulting is high. I've been learning in the area of quality and production in Oracle applications. The management of Hitachi consulting has the root to the parent company Hitachi Ltd, Japan. It is a collaboration of Japanese, American and Indian management ideologies. The co-workers are friendly, helpful, cheerful and supportive.

The hardest part of the job is that it is project specific. It can be an onsite travel or an immediate shift to another project or a challenge to work on unexplored subjects or work in customer timings. The most enjoyable part of the job is that it is flexible enough to have personal time, learn new skills, attend training sessions, take part in annual day events/celebrations, doctor facility within the campus, cafeteria facility, gym facility and sports/games facilities. – less
