    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Hitachi Europe full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Trustable and reputable company, makes business easy when speaking with customers. Japanese culture brings some Japanese qualities to the company. Multicultural.... up to a certain degree depending on the department you end up in. Good 9-5 job.

    Cons

    Career progression is given by age, not merit and favours the Japanese workers.
    Business decisions are made slowly given they operate in a fast paced environment.
    Age group is too high, a young person will feel very bored working here.

    Advice to Management

    If you want people to stay, motivate and engage them, don't expect people to come day after day with a pioneering spirit knowing that there's nothing interesting for their future. A few Managers also need to recycle themselves in skills and behaviours and HR needs to spend less time eating cake and more time tapping in the issues that matter.

    Pros

    Diverse, dynamic, multi-national, multi-sector, regional group hub, great people, good benefits

    Cons

    Slow decision making, activity shrinking

    Advice to Management

    Offer a more coordinated and joined-up offering to clients, internal and external to the group

    I worked at Hitachi Europe full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Size of company and diversification of interests should make possible cross-sector synergies and optimisations

    Cons

    - Higher Management is usually coming from Japan for a limited amount of years (usually, 3), and it's seen as a sort-of punishment for them.
    - Very hierarchical system
    - All innovation is rejected. Everything has to come from the top AND from Japan.
    - If they want you out they have no problems in mobbing you

    I have been working at Hitachi Europe full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Really lovely atmosphere - everyone is so friendly and happy to help. You feel welcomed and supported from the very start. The Company values are considered at every step of the recruitment process so new hires all tend to have similar attitudes and approaches to work.

    Cons

    Processes are quite old fashioned, although it is going through a process of change at the moment.


  9. "Lots of Potential"

    I worked at Hitachi Europe full-time

    Pros

    Hitachi Europe is a great place to work in if you want opportunities to work with lots of other Hitachi organisations across Europe. Good exposure to different aspects of the business

    Cons

    Although there is a lot of work done with external partners, there were many silos internally and sometimes difficult to break down.

    Advice to Management

    I believe having clearer objectives outlined would benefit the productivity of employees. Also, management getting behind decisions for improved implementation of projects.

    Advice to Management

    Throw a party!
