    I worked at Hitachi full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Reasonable employee compensation and benefits but not among the top in the industry.

    Cons

    Though the company wants to globalize through localization, the very top management positions in Hitachi Asia Ltd. (HQ in Singapore) were still not opened to locals.

    Advice to Management

    Stay abreast with industry best practices, be less xenophobic and be appreciative of local staff who significantly help you grow your revenues and profits instead of penalizing them. You spend so much on sending expatriates overseas and you can judge for yourself the returns you reap from them compared to the really large expenses they incur - these expenses are huge compared to the compensation & benefits of high... performing local staff who have helped you to expand your business exponentially so do not unreasonably punish the latter by reducing their compensation & benefits.
