Senior Customer Service Engineer (Former Employee) – Ashburn VA – January 20, 2018
My workload was way too heavy, due to the explosive data center growth in Ashburn VA I was doing the work of four people, management was very slow to react in spite of my requests, reports of the growth, and my excessive overtime. I even took my manager on a driving tour, seeing 10 data centers in less than a square mile area. I was omnipresent though which gave allot of pride in my work and prompted one of my customers, a Manager at Salesforce.com to nickname me the Mayor of Ashburn
Lab Technician (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – February 19, 2018
Hitachi is one of the best company to work for. it has excellent benefit, management is excellence. Hatachi is making Hard Disk Drive. They used the Seiko robot to string the wires to the read and write head.
Stressful working environment. Constantly threatened to lay people off.
Director of Business Planning (Former Employee) – Philadelphia PA – February 11, 2018
This is a very stressful and difficult place to work. Employees are constantly ranked by their managers and layoffs are often and lower ranked employees are under constant threat. The politics are very very prominent and rankings often based on subjective political factors. Brown noses move quickly up the ranks before performers.
Decent pay and good training and opportunities
Frequent layoffs, employee ranking sessions and political BS is very heavy

Training Project Manager (Former Employee) – Santa Clara, CA – February 4, 2018
I enjoyed my work at Hitachi and I really enjoyed the team I worked with. My only issue was my manager who wasn’t involved enough on a day to day basis didn’t realize what was going on. She had family issues and I believe they took her away from knowing her team.
Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee) – Santa Clara, CA – February 2, 2018
Currently Hitachi is going through not knowing what to build or sell. Management is vindictive and usually does not want to hear new ideas that are not coming from their chosen people that are far from informed.
Litte consideration given to employees work/life balance
Technical Support Engineer (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – February 1, 2018
I do not feel that Hitachi Data Systems provides a reasonable work/life balance for there employees. I saw employees being regularly taken advantage of by having to cover standby and/or off shift hours.
Assembly Line Production Worker (Former Employee) – Pensacola, FL – January 25, 2018
Team Lead was very very rude and mean when I asked a question about the product or equipment, she stated: "You Can't read". She always came to me with a negative attitude. I really enjoyed working there and I was a team player. She tried to make it hard for me and did.
Human Resources Intern (Former Employee) – Norwalk, CT – January 25, 2018
Great place for those to work who are no longer wanting the hustle and bustle lifestyle that comes with Finance. Very pro work-life balance and the senior management is adamant about everyone at every level of the company knowing what is currently going on with the company as a whole.
INSPECTOR/PACKER (Former Employee) – Salisbury, NC – January 18, 2018
This job was enjoyable to work at but the only downfall was that during the summer the warehouse would get extremely hot even having huge fans blowing towards you. There is a little vent above your head but it doesn't push out enough air.
