    The progression process of the company is too much slowly and the path is not clear. risk taking power is almost zero.There is no The decision making is slowly and most of the time one new idea is raised but never comes to conclusion and is forgotten.

    Advice to Management

    pay attention more about the talented and hardworking employees and give them opportunities to bring something different to the company.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Hitachi full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    People - Peers were the only part of the Job that was positive. Paid Benefits were a nice perk.

    Cons

    Winnipeg office laid off by a spineless corporate whipping boy. 30 people laid off. Customers not advised. Even worse - Co-workers in Montreal/Across Canada were not advised. Work extra - get no time off. No work/life Balance Lying to employees about current situation - Poor company performance Firing of Employees Via TEXT messages No increase in Pay for over 2.5 years (and advised no increases until April... 2017) Demise of the Winnipeg office - the systematic removal of all people in positions that were positive for the company. Complete disregard to Customers. Lying to customers about current company situation.

    Advice to Management

    CEO needs to go. No understanding of the people or the core essence of the business. Senior Leadership (Montreal) have little to no understanding of customers. They are good for paying a dinner bill, thats about it. HR process is a Joke. No spine, backbone. No actual real role. Sales is a complete disaster. no idea what they is doing. Doesn't embrace process - in fact all go out of their way to circumvent it.... As soon as Hitachi realize that in fact it was not Winnipeg that was the issue - and it was the mismanagement from Executive Above Management - Hitachi will ditch the loss and lay everyone off. Advice to Former Colleagues - Get out while you can. it will be only a matter of time before they will close the entire company and see what a waste of time, money and effort it was.

    I worked at Hitachi full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Pretty good pay, some days you don't have work to do.

    Cons

    - culture of fear, everyone at the home office is miserable and scared to death of losing their job. - you will constantly be flying around on a days notice and be gone up to a week at a time with little to no direction. - high turnover, company had multiple mass layoffs where new employees were laid off only to bring in previous employees with 15+ years experience. - Over micro-managed - Some states don't have... coverage so expect a rotating shift of trips to un-covered states. - Nights and weekends
