    I worked at Hitachi full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    POWER of HUMAN RESOURCES, with their HONEST and PASSION for the JOBS.

    Cons

    so many traditional manners on business. hard to change on their internal bureaucratic schemes. No mood for challenge, taking risks.

    Advice to Management

    Hitachi made huge loss in 2009. it was about $8,000 M, but due to excellent leadership by Mr. Kawamura, they have made incredible recover. since then, their key word is "Social Innovation" but, I cannot understand the definition of the word. I cannot introduce other guys as "this is a typical example of social innovation". Mid term plan for 2019-2021, a certain amount of invest ($10-20B, probably) for such as such,... but nobody knows it is sufficient or not. this is because of being unclear, vague definition of social innovation business. they announced that they earned and will try to extend revenue depending on LUMADA, but I cannot understand what is their strength of the business scheme and/or why LUMADA is so innovative. if management really want to be a global company, faster decision making and more taking risk must be required. If their roll model of the company is SIEMENS, management should review and reconstruct their business policy and strategy.
