GFK and Susan Backer this week told the business that 26% of the sales force have served notice to leave. Simply incredible ! In the US 27 people have resigned, EMEA 15 have or will do soon. What kind of sh-t show is this leadership team running??
Topics regarding layoffs at Hitachi Vantara
I’m confused. In 2021 what is vantara? It’s not a leading storage provider anymore, it’s not a digital company, it’s not got its own products as it just rebrands other hitachi work, it’s not a good sales led company, and it’s not good at delivery... — read more
Has anyone seen or heard of a HV Cloud customer? After years of buying small cloud companies, there has been no substantial revenue. The smoke and mirror show will soon end when the leases dry up on the legacy products which will not be renewed.
How did the company manage to attract talented people before, and now it is no longer able to do so? Someone made a good observation of this - HV could not brag about excellent technology or smooth processes even before, but it managed to attract... — read more
Heard this week in a leadership meeting that storage isn’t being produced and legacy HDS is being sold off. How could this be accurate? What, we’d just tell all our clients “sorry yall but we done care no more?”. Just doesn’t make sense. — read more
This company can almost no longer retain anyone who has specific skills and who is talented. Pay is certainly no longer a reason for someone like that to stay here a little longer. Still, pay isn’t the only thing that makes a significant competitive... — read more
Hitachi Vantara is ahead of the market. Hardware, application, services and cloud readiness. Few can compete. It took a change to make a change and things are on the move. In the best way.
As of July 1st of 2021, the Hitachi Vantara 401K plan will merge into Hitachi 401K. Dropping the Vantara name may mean more than just a name change. Hitachi One may just be merging Hitachi Vantara into the Global Logic platform shedding off it’s... — read more
Shouldn’t a manager be a role model who inspires, who is trusted, who has integrity and is also a hard worker? I would not like to name anyone, but I wonder if there are such managers here at all? I don't know, maybe there are managers who have... — read more
This $9 Billion deal makes front page news where as Hitachi’s $9.6 Billion barely moved the media needle. Just goes to show you folks that this company is a big joke in the IT world and can’t be taken seriously.
All of them.
Isn't it getting ridiculous that they always point the finger at employees for everything that is wrong in this company? For all their bad moves, we are to blame. It is a terrible way of managing, that is, it depicts that this company does not... — read more
Has anyone ever seen GK physically in the US? His constant WebEx presentations can be done from anywhere in this world. With his close ties to Japan and the shifting of operations to Mexico City, Costa Rica, Poland and India from the US, it would be... — read more
I recall there was talk from GK that the company wide bonus scheme didn't hit its metrics but they also understood with covid that delivering the numbers we did was still a not bad performance. and loads of people where let go. did that bonus pot... — read more

I always knew I was underpaid at HV. When I became aware that I would never get a raise, I decided to get out of here and guess what.... for much less work I was paid much, much more. I was surprised when I was offered that amount and only then did... — read more
Why are people surprised that so many are walking away from HV? Both from management and regular employees? You don't need to be too smart to see that there's no future here, at least not if you want a decent job with decent pay and benefits and... — read more
People have been leaving GSC on a weekly basis. Francesco Russo was among the many that have left this sinking ship. There has been virtually no dialogue from our leaders since that very lame Town Hall meeting. Susan M is probably brushing up on... — read more

Someone said it very well, HV could soon become a case study. Maybe it could be a study on Management practices to avoid or how to try to maintain a top–heavy organizational structure for years. The conclusion would be that sometimes one has to... — read more

Is entirely prerecorded. most of the speakers are literally just reading their lines, and not even doing a good job doing that. SMH
So many people are wasting their energy on worrying about layoffs instead of using that energy to prepare for that very possibility. Layoffs are not as scary if you have all your ducks in a row. Make sure your resume is updated, send out some... — read more

After 4.5 years of destroying this company they finally gave him the boot. I’m sure he is off to destroy more companies like in a bad Godzilla movie. How many more execs will follow him off the plank so GF’nK can bring in more of his cronies and milk... — read more
I can't help compare HV with the ship stuck in the Suez Canal. Someone had the grand idea of steering the large HV ship through the canal of digital transformation and ended up stuck in it. Then the Japanese leadership (rudderless) has been hiring... — read more

Any guess what Suzy M’s All Hands meeting on Wednesday is about?
I’ve noticed that there are a lot of talented young people here who think they’re not good enough. That’s not true and I don’t know where that lack of confidence comes from? They are simply afraid to leave, most likely because they are humiliated... — read more
I am not sure when was the last time I heard some clear vision and goal towards which the HV is heading. It may be because the HV no longer has any vision at all, please correct me if I am wrong. How that happened, I don’t know. Without vision, it... — read more
