    I worked at Hitachi full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    have decent pay and benefits

    Cons

    Leadership lies to you, and will make it sound great. Managers don't care about life balance except their own. No upward mobility. The best you can hope for is get some experience and move on.

    I worked at Hitachi full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The People of course, even though you might work in different parts of the country you still feel like a family.

    Cons

    The company vehicle is the worst. It feels like you're driving on a skateboard and you can only fit so much and you often need to transport parts.

    I have been working at Hitachi for more than a year

    Pros

    One of few companies that still has retirement. Excellent health and dental benefits. Good job security. Annual raises (very small, but consistent)

    Cons

    Poor middle management. Extremely lean manning. Upper management seems to cut spending by removing components necessary to daily operation. Below market wages. Lots of "blame game" versus action.

    I worked at Hitachi full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, work from home, excellent healthcare.

    Cons

    You have good employees and great products but you do not care about your employees whatsoever and it shows. You treat them as though their lives and the sacrifices they make mean nothing. This is exhibited by the poor pay, excessive work hours due to waves of layoffs at multiple levels(Field Engineers, Managers, etc..), terrible management at every level, lack of advancement opportunities and the lack of any incentives to do anything but the minimum amount of work required. The complete lack of proper training this company provides is ridiculous. I was expected to work on 5 different kinds of MRI machines, CT, PET, and Ultrasound all with 3 weeks of training. Add to that a hostile work environment that starts with the VP of Field Service and is translated all the way down to the district managers. This couldn't be a more unfriendly and stressful place to work.
