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

    Pros

    Ideas and suggestions for process improvement are always welcome. Parent company (Hitachi Ltd) is committed to the growth of HCC through acquisitions that help round out our offerings. Local geo events help build community. Company puts an emphasis on local offices supporting charities. Work life balance is important. Benefits and company perks are great (discounts at client companies, nice offices, healthcare, time off, etc.)

    Cons

    Review process could be clearer on how one is rated among peers.

    3) Management is unable to fully take advantage of other Hitachi sister companies
    4) Identity crisis between technology consulting & management consulting

    I have been working at Hitachi Consulting as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    You learn to dress up, send important looking reports (even if useless) every other day.

    Cons

    Very stratified, they take 75% of bill rate and only pass 25% to consultants. They try to be like Accenture but on the cheap so for this 75% margin consultants get terrible benefits and a lot of beauracracy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consultants are the ones making you the money. Your exploitation of them won't win you good will or last forever.
