disorganized
Manufacturing Development Engineer (Former Employee) –  Greensburg, INJanuary 21, 2019
No one had their act together. Upper management wasn't involved until the ball dropped and then, never hesitated to throw en employee under the bus. Not a very good team atmosphere.
Pros
vision and dental coverage
Cons
expensive benefits

Not a good place to work
Line Operator (Former Employee) –  China Grove, NCJanuary 17, 2019
The worst part was the rotating 12 hour swing shift on a 2 week stint. The machine operators ran the machines too fast for the employees to keep up and if you tried to help each other you were reprimanded. The overall cleanliness of the warehouse was poor- some days you came home covered in magnet dust.

Did not get trained properly
Order Filler (Former Employee) –  Norman, OKDecember 30, 2018
I did not get trained and I was ignored a lot and when I complained about the training they always had excuses as to why I wasn't being trained. they didn't have time or they had to train a temporary person first.

Good place to start your career. I would recommend starting here and learning as much as possible. Corporate is a bit fractured but overall a good experience.

Excellent Company
Tool Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) –  San Jose, California, USDecember 9, 2018
My time at Hitachi was rather limited due to personal reasons; however, I rather enjoyed my time there. It was a very productive and efficient environment with bright people all around. Management was very cooperative with any needs or issues I was having at the time and my co-workers were also very like minded about the company. It was definitely a positive experience working for Hitachi

Alternate Week Schedule
Wafer Manufacturing Associate (Current Employee) –  San Jose, CADecember 6, 2018
Long Hours, Standing and Walking. Work place and co workers are ok. some machines are very old. Job is quite easy if you follow procedures. The only hard part of the job is standing and walking all night, 12 hrs, which takes away your energy. Job is very repetitive.
Pros
Free Lunch ones a week
Cons
Benefits not that great, not flexible on vacation requests, works on holidays

Extensive work demand with great entry-level pay and benefits
Production Team Member (Former Employee) –  Berea, KYDecember 4, 2018
This is a great job if you are looking for temporary and entry-level work with a high pay-rate. Would not suggest long-term though.

This job has a great starting pay rate overtime opportunities, and benefits. While there are some plus sides to the money earned and benefits, depending on what area you work in, it can prove to be quite difficult.

There are other draw backs such as work-life balance. Be prepared to work a bare minimum of 50 hours a week and as much as 80 hours some weeks with not much time off. NOTE the company DOES NOT take a doctor's note as an excused absence. Attendance is very strict. Another thing to mention is the quality of the work area. Depending on where you work the air is very stuffy and the plant is generally hot and messy.

Again, this is a wonderful job if you need something temporary. With the pay rate and the overtime, this is the most profitable entry-level job I have come across. Just be sure to prepare for hard work with very long hours.
Pros
Healthcare, Benefits in general, Cafeteria, Pay
Cons
Short breaks, Unorganized management, Much required overtime, Poor work environment, Time-off non-negotiable

Hitachi under went an ITIL program which I was the lead.
IT Service Manager (Former Employee) –  Santa Clara, CADecember 3, 2018
During my time at Hitachi, I led a program to implement ITIL processes. My team owned Incident, Problem and Change Management. Unfortunately being early adopters has it's downfalls. Mainly we had difficulty getting engineers to adopt processes.
Pros
Opportunity to grow professionally
Cons
Little suport or understanding by management to adopt ITIL.

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  San Jose, CANovember 19, 2018
Hitachi is an excellent company to work for. Pay and benefits were excellent and the work environment was a typical Japanese corporate environment. It is a company that had many opportunities for advancement and encouraged its employees to advance thru internal and external training and education.

Great technology poor execution
Sales Executive (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GANovember 8, 2018
HDS had great storage technology, however they had zero market awareness and no marketing to help drive demand. Due to lack of product awareness and partner relationship it was a hard environment to be successful.

Project Accountant (Former Employee) –  Basking Ridge, NJNovember 3, 2018
This was a good company to start with. It was a volatile industry, so layoffs were common. Very much a 9:00 to 5:00 type of culture. Engineering was the top priority.
