    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Hitachi full-time for more 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.

    I have been working at Hitachi full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Great Team Spirit Good benefits package overall Nice environment to work in Interesting products and customers to work with Plenty of support to learn products and services

    Cons

    Both sites are a challenge to get to with traffic but the offices are quite flexible about timings now Hitachi love change and improvement and this can add pressure to delivering normal work sometimes The specialist knowledge required can limit progression if you are not prepared to learn about different product types

    Advice to Management

    Keep going in the right direction Ensure the pace of change keeps up with the ability to deliver it
