    The employees at Hitachi are first-rate, but young employees have little choice in their roles and practice.

    Former Employee - Consultant in Dallas, TX (US)

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

    Pros

    At Hitachi, I worked with some of the best people in my experience. Every member of my project team was ready to help with tasks, teach or train on applications, or work together to solve problems. There are numerous employee resource groups to help connect with people with similar interests or goals, such as charity fundraising, social planning, or minority groups. Additionally, Hitachi has great benefits and vacation policy.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, for me, the cons outweighed the pros at Hitachi. As a college hire, I was not given any choice on the type of work I was involved in. I was pulled into an area outside my interest and expertise, and it became apparent that I would not be able to exit this practice without leaving the company. I also landed in a project whose management fostered a very negative culture of work-life balance. Team members were often called unexpectedly to work long or late hours on both weekdays and weekends.

    Pros

    Opportunities are abundant, as it is serious about growing its portfolio across Asian market - hence, you get to work on various interesting projects.

    Cons

    Because its a Japanese company, you can still witness some of the rigidity of the Japanese traditional management. Yet I could say that its improving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Office culture has to change to accommodate more productivity.

    Pros

    Great people to work with: smart, energetic and driven. You will definitely be challenged.

    Cons

    There is a big disconnect between local office and national leadership. It really feels like each office is working as a separate unit at times vs the operating model of national first.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review the disconnect between strategic direction and local implementation as there is a big gap where "things" seem to get lost.
