Work is dependent on the manager's presence. If they don't come in to work, you wont have work to do. Workplace culture does not exist. There is no room for growth.
Pros
Can't think of one
Cons
Long hours with no work on most days

A new CEO was appointed in July. There has been significant reductions in force. We are still unclear as to the structure that we will be in for the next fiscal year. There is quite a bit of insecurity being felt as YoY growth is declining and cuts have been to the bone.
Pros
Good Brand, good people
Cons
too many people living in a previous decade

It doesn't matter how hard you work or how hard you try. If they don't like you, they'll do everything they can to force you out.
Pros
Some of the people are really cool, free food
Cons
Lazy workers are the favorites of management, if you're a temp you'll never get hired unless you know someone, not much communication

This company had more lay offs than any company in the world They need to get rid of the fat up top and keep the Indians. They are all on the brother program arrogant and conceited and take care of themselves and screw the bottom. To many Directors and up that don’t know there own from hole in the ground. Stay away and find a different job
Pros

Going down Finacial no bonuses low pay

Durch ständigen Vorgesetzten Wechsel, sparen egal was es kostet und selbstprofilierung des Managements geht leider immer mehr der Focus auf Kundenzufriedenheit, Qualität Und Mitarbeiterzufriedenheit verloren. Das kann auch ein gutes Gehalt nicht Kompensieren. Schade, es war mal eine tolle Firma!

There has been a lot of turnaround and mass layoffs over the years to help compensate for the struggling profit numbers. As a result, left a lot of teams and employees unmotivated and feeling uncertain of their future. Company communications have not been timely or effective. Tough to move-up unless you're on a team that is very profitable.
Pros
Remote work availability
Cons
Compensation

Storage is an ever-changing environment so be ready for change. The company is shifting much of its employment attention to off-shore personnel so be aware of a changing culture.

The company has great products but is not aggressive (marketing, sales, etc.) in the marketplace. Management demonstrates a lack of growing the business on a daily basis. Any success at the company is due to individual initiative, NOT management support or prioritization. Great work/life balance due to the lack of urgency and taking advantage of opportunities in the marketplace. Administration and reporting take precedence over getting things done.

Data lock-in as standard, not by design, but poor coding and even worse architecting by clueless great apes. Pre-sales forced into poor designs by ultra-high pricing of commodity items, leading to “it just doesn’t work” being standard practice for the field teams. Partnering with extremely poor ODM partners that provided product so cheap I wouldn’t use it in my home, let alone a mission-critical server hall. Tore my hair out and gave myself alopecia in the process of supporting it to boot. The laughable “Insight” group that provided an EXCELLENT glimpse of Hitachi Vantara’s future by providing vaporware. Lumada looked like something I’d have programmed for my CS first-year, no kidding. Now consigned to a catch-all “brand” for other legacy products. Pentaho - potential greatness blown away by our dear leaders. No wonder they took the money and run, and I guess the user base are jumping ship as well. Ringing any BlueArc-shaped bells? The new strategy - let’s buy bankrupt software companies and think we can make a viable product out of them! Newsflash… they went bankrupt for a reason. Personnel - let’s get rid of all the highly paid and experienced staff in favour of offshoring, YEARS after it has proven to be a busted strategy, ending up costing far more in the long run. Awful, spiteful, severance negotiations and package. The company would rather pay barristers now than negotiate suitable settlements for displaced (sorry, resource aligned) employees. You’ve reached the “lawyers” stage of the “innovators, accountants, lawyers, liquidators” cycle so it won’t - more...
Pros
You get paid
Cons
Mass layoffs of the people that know what they’re talking about and keep the ship afloat

There is a work-life balance with this company. The managers are helpful and understanding. However, there is a lack of organization with upper management.

Hitachi culture of respect and honor inspires commitment from employees. It's clear the people at Hitachi makes the difference. Collaborations in small groups to resolve global challenges is one example.
