    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Hitachi for more than a year

    Pros

    Their culture is good. Hitachi America has a medium company feel to it despite the Large size of the Hitachi Corporation Globally.

    Cons

    The company is not as well structured to communicate internally as others I have worked for. There is an overlap of functionality between divisions which can lead to a duality of functions and redundancy of workload.

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

    Pros

    Hitachi was my first experience working for a Japanese company, while based in the US. Patience, open-mindedness, and appreciation for cultural differences goes a long way within Hitachi.

    Lacks a Product Line Management team necessary to build strong customer relationships and establish business partnerships.

    Sales Manager in Chula Vista, CA

    I have been working at Hitachi

    Pros

    If you perform they leave you alone, hence most successful people stay many years. Great medical/dental/vision plan. Pay package is average.

    Cons

    Management does not understand the business or customers enough. Not given the leeway to make the primary decisions in running the business.

    Sales 

    I worked at Hitachi

    Pros

    Better salary than competitors Really good benefits (health insurance and 401K especially) compared with competitors in the same industry.

    Cons

    Glass ceiling when it comes to promotion. i.e. management positions are mostly occupied by people from the owner company in Japan. they come and go every 3 to 5 year as senior management (director, CEO, CFO, etc.) even though some of them don't even speak English. you will never be able to be promoted beyond general manager unless you bring tons of profit to the company.
