    Pros

    The people here are what makes it such a great place to work. I work for Hitachi Capital Business Finance in the Staines office and have done for the past 5+ years. I have developed in my roles and since joining have worked my way up to a Team Manager role. Development of people and delivering exceptional service to our customers are key to our success. I have been approached several times by competitors to work for them but they would not be able to offer the career progression and the unique feel and culture of Hitachi Capital.

    Cons

    I honestly cannot think of any

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing in Business Finance - Head Office Management could learn a lot from how Business Finance embraces our values.

    Pros

    Still relatively small, you can make an impact if you work hard enough.
    Ambitious targets, could be very exciting moving forward.
    A certain amount of autonomy exists, not just a cog in the machinery.
    Ethical business culture, not keen on a race to the bottom seen in competitors.

    Cons

    Very dated in a number of ways - systems are antiquated, overly reliant upon paper, culturally hierarchical in nature.
    More trust in staff needed, decisions still made almost exclusively at the top.
    Poor work/life balance - if you want something done, give it to a busy person.
    Compensation and benefits could be better for the market.
    Sometimes overly target driven, people should be at the heart of things more.

    Advice to Management

    Engage with your staff more.
    Take a step back and build for the future.
    Make more of an effort to encourage and retain talent - sometimes rules are meant to be broken.
    Senior members of the business need to engage with people more - there is an ivory tower feel on occasion.
    Follow through on your promises more.
    More agile working and flexibility needed.
