    Pros

    Hitachi consulting offshore is good for place to work for new college graduates, as they get quite good exposure very quickly. The sierra Atlantic management is good in catering your personal career goals.

    Cons

    Very low pay to offshore transfers to US compared to locals.

    Pros

    Varied clients, varied scope of work. Fair bit of freedom.

    Cons

    Way too much administrative overkill for PMs. Poor benefits package. Not much in the way of bonuses. Very poor communication - e.g. Organizational changes aren't announced

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ease up on the admin/overhead requirements. Revisit bonus plans and improve vacation allowances.

    I worked at Hitachi Consulting full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Other members of the team were supportive, professional and hard-working but the management of that team was a disaster

    Cons

    Riven by politics, absurd management speak and leadership incompetence. Couldn't win projects in expert areas so part of their business model is to send people who don't have the skills required to client sites on basis they must pretend they do have the expertise

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The senior management in the areas I worked in were incompetent and I believe most have left in the last 2 years

    I worked at Hitachi Consulting (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Most people I interacted with were all good people. Very strong benefits package, vacation time and salary.

    Cons

    Highly stressful place. Rather than replace internally focused people who left, they just transferred work onto others. Everyone I tried to talk to was stressed all the time. Toxic environment overall. Work doesn't need to be that way as I have found since I left!
