    I have been working at Hitachi Consulting full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of peers around the same age, interests. When starting out of college, everyone is joining at the same position and going through the same training and intro to work. You meet a lot of great people and learn a lot.

    Cons

    Pay is lower than other consulting firms.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more direct and detailed about career progression.

    I worked at Hitachi Consulting full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Highly skilled, collaborative colleagues
    Good relationships with most major vendors

    Cons

    The top leadership's desire to become a $B company through rapid acquisition had a negative effect on morale

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend less time buying unknown talent, and more time working to retain the quality people that have already made Hitachi Consulting their home.

  9.  

    Overall not a bad IT consulting company to work for. Decent PTO, good health care, and for the most part great people.

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

    Pros

    - Good benefits and health care.
    - Decent amount of PTO
    - competitive salary for people hired out of college

    Cons

    - Annual review process was very tedious and limited to once a year, regardless of when you started.
    - Salary as you moved up and gained more experience flattened out and was less than other companies
    - No bonuses for Consultants, only at the Sr. Consultant level and above.
    - idea of consulting core is good, but implementation leaves something to be desired

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve on the annual review process

    Pros

    Big company with some good projects around the world

    Cons

    HC became a largish player in the UK after acquiring Edenbrook which had a lot of good people, unfortunately most of them left within a few years due to culture changes - particularly in the Oracle practice who don't seem to have won an decent projects for quite a while now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try and win some projects
