Horrible place to work
Production Manager (Former Employee) –  Berea, KYAugust 16, 2016
This place is slave drivers they dont care about you or anything that goes on with your life. The management crew dont have a clue what is going on there. The hardest part of the job is lying to the people and trying to get them to believe it. The easist part is just act dumb and you will fit right in with the rest of them.

NONE

Large Global Corporation with Lack of Focus on Back Office Employees
Senior Human Resources Advisor (Current Employee) –  Englewood, COJune 10, 2016
The HR function does not invest in retaining talent. There have been over 20 employees who have quit in the past 3.5 years from 1 team in HR due to dissatisfaction in the job stemming from lack of room for growth, poor management, and unfair compensation. The CEO of HDS does believe in merit based compensation increases and the HR team does not believe in promoting employees from within. The leadership team of HDS does not believe in annual increases due to market changes either causing many employees to leave due to dissatisfaction in pay/benefits.The HR leadership team even admitted there is no room for career growth within the HR organization.
Pros
1 hour lunch, pretty flexible with time off
Cons
Low pay, no room for growth, poor management

not the best place to work at at first glance
Team leader/supervisor (Current Employee) –  San Jose, CAJune 3, 2016
hitachi could be a better company but its level of pay does not reflect the level of work. and because of this they have a turnover rate of well over 50%. They also require employees to work overtime and after working 4 12 hour shifts then being told to work a 5 day can be stressful on you body and personal live.
Pros
you only work half the month
Cons
12 hour shifts then they as you ot so your 48 hour workweek turns into 60 hour work week.

Overall I enjoy my workplace and the products I sell.
Account Executive (Current Employee) –  Scottsdale, AZMay 24, 2016
Cold call about 10 offices and at least one hospital per day. The co-workers are readily available to help out in any way they can. The most enjoyable part of this job are the challenges. Getting out there everyday is what I enjoy.

Great working place with nice gym and exercise classes
Business Operations Manager, Americas Marketing (Current Employee) –  Santa Clara, CAMay 24, 2016
I've been at Hitachi for almost 17 years in which I've changed positions three times and that gave me the opportunity to advance and learn different accounting fields.
The atmosphere is relaxed and co-workers are friendly.
The hardest part is that my whole department is located in a different state, and that makes the job a bit lonely.
The most enjoyable part is that I get to travel and participate in events all over the country and internationally.
Pros
Nice gym and cafeteria
Cons
Benefits are decreasing overall

NO direction
Sr. Consulting Engineer (Former Employee) –  Denver, COMay 21, 2016
there is no path for success for this company. this company only wants you if you can work anytime they want you to work. Their customer comes first (of course) than their employees. They have a bad turnover of engineers specially with their Professional Services team.
