Company in transition, confusion in the workforce
Employee (Current Employee) –  Santa Clara, CA13 February 2018
In my time at Hitachi there always seemed to be too much process for the work to be done. Also, with the transition to a new business focus, the message to employee's was to be willing to learn new things with the change in business, but not ever given the opportunity. Instead layoffs and uncertainty plague the company.

They started out good.
Senior Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Dallas-Fort Worth, TX30 January 2018
I worked from home, which always impacts your work/life balance negatively. Initially they were a great company to work for with decent benefits. After 3 rounds of layoffs, and now org changes in management they just aren't the same company anymore. The PM's and technical people are a great bunch of folks to work with; easy going, but hard working. New management has come in recently that have made it just miserable to stay there. The company is in the midst of a rebrand and that always is stressful.

Added to that they do not have a formal PMO so they have no direction regarding quality management or risk management which leaves them very vulnerable.

I worked in professional services delivery, which in a way was satisfying as you get to see the end results of a customer's storage implementation. The hard part was the lack of direction I ever really got and the fact that I'd been told I was promotable, but was never told what I needed to improve on to make that happen.

They also will NOT negotiate with you on starting salary. Their line is "take it or leave it".
Pros
Cell phone discounts, discounted tickets, allowance for home office, good people
Cons
Lots of layoffs, reorg in progress, management is in flux, misaligned with their current values

Great prospects but diminishing workforce
Pre-Sales Consultant (Current Employee) –  London23 January 2018
Great work/life balance but not enough young talent being nurtured and brought through the company. The company is undergoing drastic change (merging of three companies) which will eventually work out for the good, but many employees are resisting the change, it still feels like 3 different companies.
Pros
Working hours
Cons
Poor management

Great place to work
Consultant (Current Employee) –  San Francisco, CA21 November 2017
Currently the company is going through some changes merging HDS, Hitachi Insights, and Pentaho to form Hitachi Vantara. With those changes brings some uncertainty about the future and its workforce. Hitachi offers excellent benefits and compensation. Work life balance is uneven with many hours spent on engagements away from family but you're fairly compensated for this. Some management are not engaged with their employees and a true employee development process is lacking, but to Hitachi's credit an employee development process is being created. Under the right manager and circumstance this opportunity could provide longevity if you are capable of dealing with the uneven work/life balance. I would recommend this company to someone else.
Pros
benefits, compensation
Cons
work/life balance, lack of engagement from management (in certain cases)

Used to be a great place to work
Area Operations Manager (Current Employee) –  Santa Clara, CA16 October 2017
Now it's total chaos. We have been undergoing a "transformation" for awhile, and seem to be getting nowhere. The company is making decisions in a vacuum and is not investing in it's technology and good employees.
Pros
Good salary
Cons
No structure, poor communication, dumb marketing buzzwords that mean nothing
