    Former Employee - Manager in Hyderābād
    Former Employee - Manager in Hyderābād

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

    Pros

    No projects in company hence no work, which results in flexible working hours. The lathery trickles down from the top as most of the top management come to office with newspapers.

    Cons

    Total company revenues are around $45 million from Indian operations, it is almost same size of as any small size account in top notch IT companies based out of India or US ,For generating $45 million they have 16 vice presidents overseeing operations and same numbers of directors and almost 40 to 50 senior managers, it is so very heavy at the top that it has absolutely no room at the bottom, hence zero tolerance to bench . A healthy IT company follows a lean top management and heavy revenue enablers at the bottom , a healthy pyramid structure but Hitachi consulting India defies cost effective route followed by healthy IT companies and has inverted pyramid structure.

    They have GO To Market teams(Sales team) based out of India, when the Indian operations are primarily low cost delivery center ,dint understand the logic behind of having a sales team based out of India when the max amount of revenues are generated out of US, The GO TO Market team indulges in some silly and senseless exercises like proposal factory and weaving out service offerings around technology and coming up with differentiators ,unfortunately these silly and senseless presentations are given to the American bosses during their visits.

    The top management confuses arrogance to that of confidence, the top management takes lots of pride in grooming mavericks( which borders idiotism) ,these mavericks are so very difficult to work with that they stifle qualities like initiative ,candor in the teams who work with them ,qualities which are core to the advancement of IT company. These mavericks are feudal and reckless in their conduct which stems due the long stay in the organization.
    The top management has verticalized around different business streams like all the big companies without giving a though that they are too small to imitate any of the top notch companies,I can only conclude that that the exercise is taken up to accommodate the big guys who have been in the organization for too long and are too old and to move out and rusted to get themselves a job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Flush out the heavy top management based out of India to save costs and save brand Hitachi.
