Good people, poor management
Vice President (Current Employee) –  HoustonOctober 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.

Good company to start Consulting career
AX Consultant (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXMarch 10, 2016
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

Mid-level Consulting Experience erased
Senior Project Manager (Consultant) (Former Employee) –  Denver, COApril 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.

Proceed with caution -- probably depends upon business unit
Support Consultant (Former Employee) –  TXSeptember 17, 2015
Compensation for a year's work was less than 2% for average review.

Laid off people who worked remotely saying either they did not perform adequately (not always true) or that their primary skill set was not needed although majority of work perform did not involve primary skill set for more than 2 years; then hired the same number of people laid off to perform the many of the same job duties but who worked locally. Perception is that company wanted people in office to control and manipulate due to missing sales forecast.

Expect lying, e.g. dumbing down reviews, and intimidation when organization does not meet business goals.

A solid foundation for a consulting career after college, usually work/life balance is strong, but can quickly turn.
Remote opportunities available but not often. depends on the project.

Good culture, people, terrible upper management
Management (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILJune 6, 2014
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 top talent. Compensation is probably the worst compare to other consulting firms.
Pros
people, culture, flexibility
Cons
compensation, poor leadership, lack of direction and strategy, lack of training

Comparable to other mid size firms
Manager (Former Employee) –  AtlantaMarch 30, 2015
If you've worked for a mid size firm than this is most likely similar,
Quarterly meetings and night prior activities were fun.
Pay is a little lower. Low bonus and no equity.
Pros
Christmas thru New Years off without hit to vacation
Cons
Slow advancement and politics

Growing pains
Senior Manager, Management Consulting (Current Employee) –  Seattle, WAMarch 18, 2015
Hitachi has provided me with some amazing opportunities so I am thrilled with the experiences I have gained, it is a good place to start or end your career and grow select skills, but it is a struggle at mid level positions. It continues to want to play with the "big boys" but failures to fully integrate key acquisitions have resulted in stagnation in select areas.
Pros
People I work with, unlimited vacation at Manager level and above, opportunities to play leadership roles
Cons
Buy lots of companies but struggle to integrate successfully, training has moved to national online model - would benefit from more inperson trainings

Great people, great culture, opportunities
Global Internal Communications Director (Current Employee) –  Denver, COFebruary 10, 2014
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 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.
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.
