I just got an offer from Hitachi. Has anyone worked here? How is the culture or reputation?

Wait for the Accenture offer and assuming Hitachi is the only other option, take the Accenture offer.

Mr Cool to pri_sa (#5)

24 hours to accept the offer or it is withdrawn?!?!

If that really us true, then it tells you all you need to know about the firm; they are paranoid about constantly coming in as second choice.

If necessary sign the offer - it does not commit you to the job! You can "resign" when the acn offer comes in.

Congrats. Very good firm. Answer to your question really depends on what you want to do. Opeartional consulting or system implementation - hard to beat these guys. Hard core strategy, you should look elsewhere. Strong culture, market comp, seem to care about their people.

sorry ..I really did not understand last remark. I am doing part time MBA from University of Washington too. Do you think I am not eligible for MC b'coz I work for Hitachi?

It was a joke.

Hitachi is neither here nor there with regards to an MC application - although the MBA will obviously help. What will steer the application is what you have done at H and how applicable that is to what you are applying for.

Finally! A transatlantic whoosh!

(Assuming they mean Washington DC or Washington State!)

God help us all if you can do an MBA at the university of Washington in Sussex!

pri_sa to Mr Cool (#19)

Its UW seattle - foster school of business (exp graduation : 2014)..I am totally new to consulting.

I have 5 yrs of software development experience and 2 years in program management.

Right now, they are putting me on 'application support' which I absolutely don't like. As a consultant, do I have a right to change my project? I mean do I have a choice?

Not liking your new job already, that is good...

No you don't have a right and you won't get a choice for a long time..

I'm afraid you are just about to learn the hard way that there are hundreds of techy sweatshops that get people to work for them by calling the job "consultancy".

hmmmm...thanks MR. cool :) .what is the way out? Apply for "real consultancy" after MBA graduation? what are "real consultancies" except MBB. I am afraid I won't be able to get into MBB since I'm not a Harvard school grad..

pri_sa

You're doing an MBA and want to work in consultancy but don't know the difference between...

System Integrators

BIG4

BIG4 lookalikes

independent niche consultancies

MBB

?????

Step one, take the accenture offer if it comes through

Step two, ask for your money back from the MBA school

Obviously a forum like this is for asking advice, but come on - an MBA (and a consultant) should be able to do market/supplier segmentation
