Great culture and people, very difficult for lower levels

I have been working at Hitachi Consulting full-time (more than a year)

Pros

The culture is very "work hard, play hard" which I really enjoy. The people are super fun and outgoing. It's a really fun group.

Cons

-It's very difficult for lower level consultants to move up. You don't really get a choice in which projects you want, and you pretty much just take what you can get
-Compensation not as high as other firms
-No bonuses, they really don't reward hard work
-hours can be really rough.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give bonuses to reward hard work. Some people work 12-14 hours a day and still only make the base salary (which is below average for consulting).

    Pros

    Big opportunity for career progression if you are good and on the right project.
    Some good people.

    Cons

    Not much knowledge sharing, but this is something that can be improved.
    But you have the chance to change things, try not to be a bystander.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to win more gigs in central london.

    Former Employee - Senior Manager in Denver, CO (US)

    I worked at Hitachi Consulting full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Culture
    People at lower level (Consultants, Managers SM)
    Flexible work schedules

    Cons

    Terrible compensation compare to other consulting firms
    Poor leadership, executives with no vision and strategy, they continue to acquire more companies without solid strategy what to do with them.
    Senior VPs and Execs care about their own future and slice of the pie. Lower people below VP are treated poorly and not compensated well.
    Poor benefits and training program. Zero external training or cross-training to make employees marketable.
    Lack of strategic projects, pipeline
    Business model that worked years ago, no longer works. More of top talent are leaving the firm as they are fed up with upper management, lack of leadership, practice growth and vision.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a solid strategy and what differentiates HC brand in the marketplace
    Focus on employees and compensation, total reward to compete with other consulting firms
    Senior VPs need to go through some leadership training. They disparately need it!! Too many clueless execs and Senior VPs that don't deliver to their promise or bring any value-add to the organization, neither meet their sales #s.
