Hitachi is a challenging work environment. There are areas for improvements, A lot of noise comes from companies that have been purchased by Hitachi and expect the same culture

Hitachi HQ says all the right things but apply none. There is no strategy. The heads of businesses are Japanese expatriates who rotate every 3 years. They hardly speak English, have no knowledge of the market, the customers, the suppliers, the employees culture. The Japanese expatriates are in majority (there are a few exceptions) arrogant, ignorant, and immature managers.
The company has very good quality products. But their management skills are close to zero. They lose a lot of money because of their rigidity.

If you want to learn and grow only without expecting any kind of promotion then this is a good place to work. For experienced professional, monotonous work. Vision is not clear and Head to toe politics.

Life is easier when you learn to speak Japanese properly in this company. As long as you do your best to speak up your thoughts in Japanese your colleagues will also do their best to understand what you said.
Pros
Safe workplace
Cons
Long hours

It is a great corporate environment to work in. Training and support was brilliant, the people lovely and in sales it was a good basic salary plus commission (which I think could have been better but I think we always do).

Only negative from the sales side of things was that the leads were quite low which limits commission.
Pros
Environment, training, salary
Cons
Lack of leads, commission structure

Work culture is good but salary increment is not as per my expectation. They are biased. Otherwise all good things in organization. Main problem is only about salary

Overall job is very good and interesting but the top management is very bad at judging co workers. My responsibility here is handling manpower arrangement , making report or issue and make sure the workers work in safety workplace.

I liked the fact that I had team members located in different parts of the world. I enjoyed working as a part of the training department and assisting the system admin with updating the curriculum for the clients in training.
Pros
Occasional free meals, free snacks and coffee/tea in breakroom

you gotta be able to work together as a team. you gotta be able to depend on your work team. you gotta be willing to work hard and long hours. the job is very physical labor. you’ll work 6-7 days a week, 10-12 hour shifts.

Good atmosphere, good people and the work was non strenuous and easy to achieve goals. The facilities are brilliant. Big car parks. Clean locker rooms and toilets/showers. 5S system of work in place so all equipment is maintained to a high standard. Big canteen with quality food and drink albeit a bit on the pricey side. Great benefits with health care and Pension plan. Good bonus plan and yearly pay increases
