At what age is a prospective candidate considered “too old” to hire in this industry? I may not be right, but it seems to me that this age ceiling is falling more and more. Companies seem to want younger and younger candidates. Young people do not... — read more
Someone has already mentioned a very important thing: It takes DAYS to do anything now. How do you think the increased outsourcing of jobs will affect this company in the end? I do not underestimate the people who work for less money, but I still... — read more
When an employee’s performance is consistently good, it becomes expected and may unknowingly be taken for granted. I have seen people in leadership positions manipulate high-performing employees to produce more, take on the burden of others. Yet... — read more
Is good teamwork something that is slowly disappearing from HW??? It seems to me that teams are becoming more and more dysfunctional here. In my current team some individuals try to dominate the group in all possible ways and they are a big drain on... — read more
Are you mostly bored at work too? It's high time I got out of here. I have worked at several companies in this industry, but the job here is definitely the most boring. HW is definitely not a place for someone who wants to build their career but for... — read more
Just curious if anyone has an opinion about the new Aussie HV president?
In April, 4 million Americans quit their jobs, the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics reported. That's 2.8%, the highest quit rate in the 21 years such data has been collected. The rates in May and June weren't far behind: 3.6 million (2.5%) and 3.9... — read more
When did the HV leadership and managers lose their sense of business and work ethic? I don’t remember the times when there were less of both in this company.
For myself, the same as some Technical Consultants: we were in GSS, then moved to GD, to Managed Services in the past few years at HV. I think MS team maybe is still quite stable compare to other team in North America (as long as customer keep... — read more
A colleague who was a great person and a great employee got a promotion and I was really very happy for him. Very soon after that he changed so it is no longer the same person. It’s a bit ridiculous to watch it all. Perhaps the promotion makes it so... — read more
I was being underpaid, and management kept putting more and more work on me. About half the team had previously quit, too. They asked me to take a leadership role in the team with no title change or pay increase. It was an incredibly toxic place... — read more
[CEO]: Well, you can tell by the way I use my walk I'm a woman's man, no time to talk Music loud and women warm, I've been kicked around Since I was born And now it's alright, it's okay And you may look the other way We can try to understand The New... — read more
"When Kandiah joined Hitachi Vantara in July 2020, he took over a company that had gone through a massive transition from a storage-centric vendor to a leader in IoT and analytics. But that wasn’t enough: Kandiah in March oversaw the $9.6 billion... — read more
Most people I know have gotten into this industry through family/friends or lied about it. Those who have not (which is rare) are struggling and will likely always be cogs. Is this what tech is now
I worked through this pandemic and did some dangerous business travel for this thankless company. How about acknowledging what we did for the company’s bottom line instead of spending money on useless executives.
I used to have a manager like that here. He always empowered people to succeed and do what they do well. Are there any more such managers left here? I wish there was, but it seems to me more and more that they no longer motivate, inspire or... — read more
Lately, the biggest problem for me is my manager who in most cases is not available. Only if he thinks that something is important, then he is willing to communicate. Otherwise he is unreachable. If I have a question about the job to be done, I... — read more
In my opinion, the situation is critical, but if the management of this company does not care, I do not see much reason why it would bother me as well. I've been doing enough work for 3 people for months now and I don't want to anymore. I do not plan... — read more
How much have you progressed since leaving this ridiculous company? My life has drastically improved since I left, and I’ve only been in a new company for 2 months. I don’t believe there are many people who made the mistake of leaving HV, and if... — read more
The rise in COVID-19 cases, EC meeting decided to delay bringing employees back into the office till January 2022. Employee continue to work remotely and enjoy spending time with family.
Here’s a thought. I saw news report about a growing number of people are just saying I quit to their employer. Could this be transcending over at Hitachi Vantara and nobody realizes it except for maybe C level execs and HR?
is there anyone left in California at our HQ or did we outsource all your jobs
No surprises, it looks like the deal is going to close this month - https://markets.businessinsider.com/news/stocks/hitachi-completes-acquisition-of-globallogic-1030603667 Two interesting things I noted - there is no mention of 1) Vantara in the... — read more
I see some here trying to play down the complaints of people who rightly have many objections to this company. They are trying to convince us that the situation at HV is improving and that things should not be viewed negatively. Well I’d love not... — read more
Very happy to say that I recently got promoted to VP. Could not have done this without my team.
Now the next time you’re at a Disney park and there is a malfunction, think of Hitachi Vantara.
What do you think, did Covid create an even bigger gap between management and ordinary employees? I don’t think the manager-employee relationship even before the pandemic was particularly motivating, however, I have a feeling that the... — read more
I hesitated for almost a year. I worked here for a long time without any motivation and I knew I had to leave but I thought the situation elsewhere wasn't much better and that’s why I stayed here. In the end, the breaking point was when the HV laid... — read more
Or is he just going to be the remote CEO we never met who implements a hybrid work schedule
This is the company you work for. You get paid for the service you provide. Stop getting emotionally invested in what's going to happen to HV. Some of you seem to care more than the leadership does. They know this is all about the money, for the... — read more
Whatever I was doing, no matter how engaged I was, trying to add value, to stand out with my work - I never got a promotion. I won't even try again, I've been working the bare minimum for a while and I'm looking for another job. I would just like... — read more
Leadership meeting in London today confirmed
Forget management. There’s maybe 1-2 folks in each org who have their role understood. And they are probably on their way out. This is depressingly shocking and embarrassing.
A company that is transparent is a company that enables employees to understand the company's mission, to trust leadership more, and to start contributing to their ideas. HV is not that kind of company. Unfortunately. They obviously think that... — read more

Here we go again. HV just acquired another worthless cloud company. This time it’s for a four year old company with no financial information to be shared with us. Trust me when I say that this will be another blunder after they peel away the layers... — read more
More cognizant people on the way. Suspect they will lay off legacy Hitachi solutions and services people still remaining and replace with GL and C people in the coming months. Hearing that GL folks will also be let go at the top levels as they... — read more
Hi ho Silver !!! The buying of small cloud companies for an undetermined sum of money continues. This time it’s for a company barely four years old and claims to have over 1000 clients. It all BS. We’ve seen this movie before. Now we will learn how... — read more
