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
good, ethical company but little opportunity for Non-Japanese
Global Director - Brand & Integrated Marketing (Current Employee) – Tarrytown, NY – August 8, 2018
Company needs to become much more internationalized and focused on the individual markets it's trying to succeed in, i.e., the US market. Right now there is no leadership at the senior level for the company and very little coordination or cooperation among the various companies. But still a very nice corporate culture with very fine, ethical people.
Customer Service (Former Employee) – CT – July 30, 2018
Incompetent and power hungry managers will micromanage and take away your cell phone like you’re in 1st grade. Ridiculous work hours and sh*it pay for them. There’s litte actual appreciation for any work you do.
Solutions Consultant (Former Employee) – NYC, NY – July 23, 2018
I wold have stayed longer but was offered allot more to go to big blue! Big mistake! HDS is a good company with long established Japanese underpinnings. The problem is here is the US they are nothing more than a "Reseller" of the products. They make some fantastic products and software but they lack in the support staff here in the States. So, you get stuck wearing many hats with no ability to make things right for the customer. They are good people and works very hard. They just need more support staff.

Hitachi was my first civilian job after I left active duty. It was a good place to learn how a civilian company operates. Unfortunately, the division I worked in (semiconductor, Las Colinas TX) is no longer in business.

General Manager (Former Employee) – Pensacola, FL – June 25, 2018
I was given the opportunity to utilize my depth of knowledge, to challenge myself, and make major improvements to the Pensacola facility. I was given the opportunity to take my life's experiences and apply it to solve problems, to mentor, to lead by example and make major improvements. This was achieved by setting in place core foundation that were missing, like 5 "S" principles, which enables "Lean" and continuous improvement practices. It was very satisfying to be able to share my knowledge and evolve a true team working environment to achieve what we did, I love the power of team and team effort.
Employee (Former Employee) – Medley, FL – June 16, 2018
A negative management style made for a contentions work environment. I found HRU to be a difficult place to work due to the negative culture. The HR Head of Dept. does all kind of stuff for upper management yet does not take the HR duties nor the employees seriously or professionally. HR & upper management (all US execs) set up people to fail in order to ensure opportunities for personal friends, or other agendas, obviously not based on merits. The company is constantly behind the technology trends so that made it extremely difficult for certain IMPORTANT task & DEADLINES to be met without working extreme hours under a huge constant pressure because the systems, Network & INTERNET are slow or simply do not work at some point of the day. It's ironic that a multinational with technology specific business units allows this. Dubious HR & upper management behaviors & transactions are observed by all employees, which make ethical, descent employees extremely uncomfortable. If an employee speaks about the reality or does anything to try to not be involved they will retaliate.
