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

    Pros

    Flexible working hours and duration of stay in office is also flexible..

    Cons

    You will report to incompetent managers who are jealous of competent people and new joiner has to deal with their insecurities which is due to their lack of knowledge. To sum it up the management likes “Yes bosses” and detest people you speak their mind.

    You will hear constant talk in the organization about impending layoffs and ongoing layoffs,you need to hear constant talk about some employees is fired in one of the location (Hyderabad, Bangalore or Pune) and this will make you more nervous and in-turn sleepless.

    You will see incompetent managers getting promotions all the time, he/she is measured against KPI which are unique to Hitachi consulting which is No. of years he/she has put up in the organization and no of times the apprise has said “yes” to the appraiser without asking a questions , seen senior management giving promotion to someone whose brain child is “Proposal factory “ (this is something similar to an assembly line in manufacturing industry adapted to IT industry and the hilarity of the exercise and final product cannot be explained in words and one has to see the final product and value add to Hitachi Consulting)nothing frustrates you when you see mediocrity getting rewarded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mr CEO ,Please look into the proposal factory and just do the assessment as to why you need so many people in the top management who are of no value and adding costs to the organization.
