    Former Employee - Project Engineer in Derby, England

    Positive Outlook

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

    Pros

    Interesting work. Working with the Japanese.

    Cons

    Despite the Hitachi name plate, this company still has a small minded, unprofessional attitude from its days when it was known as TRE. There was a culture of resentment between the headquarters in Bradford upon Avon and the Derby office by some individuals due to their immature, insecure, bullying attitude.

    Advice to Management

    Appoint appropriately experienced, mature professionals not children.
