    Former Employee - HDS Contract Trainer for HDS Education in Washington, DC

    I worked at NIIT as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Work with HDS Education and lab use. Train customers and partners in HDS technology.

    Cons

    Last minute changes that cost you as a contract trainer. NIIT bill rate was lower than some other vendors. Payment was sporadic and travel subsidy was prorated based on number of days and was very unfavorable for engagements less than five days. Travel rate did not cove last minute airfare and hotel in full. Never mind rental car and other expenses. Also, NIIT has a wealth of H-1B visa trainers so you as a contract trainer were called in only if the H-1B was not available. Basically, a full time trainer with NIIT worked about 12-14 out of the month with luck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop screwing the trainers on travel. Most of the trainers know you get bonused on keeping expenses travel lower and for using your travel company. Last minute changes on flights kill the profit for the contractor. Using your Indian travel company is frustrating and the cheapest flight almost always wastes a 10-12 hour day on a 5 hour flight.

    Former Employee - Instructional Designer in Gurgaon, Haryana (India)
    Former Employee - Instructional Designer in Gurgaon, Haryana (India)

    I worked at NIIT full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Company has a good vision and approach hence was able to make its presence felt around the globe.

    This company has some people whome I would say they are the "ASSETS TO NIIT".

    Cons

    When a company grows and becomes large enough to be managed by the inceptors/creators, it becomes indispensible to decentralise the management and operations to expand the business and spawn the wings. The meritorious creators of NIIT, with their bona fide struggle, carved the way of growth and made some so called "Site leaders, Senior project managers.......etc" to manage the business. This is where the pitfall started. Of late, I saw some real dignified projects falling off the wagon so badly that it was good enough to tarnish the image of NIIT.

    These ne'er-do-well managers has nothing to do with the laid down policies. They make the employees extend the work beyond the level of humanity. Forget about others, I myself worked for 21 hrs in a streatch.

    Crises can happen once or twice where an employee can be made to work like this (in fact, they wud be happy to). If a crises becomes an ongoing affair, then it points to two reasons: 1) A deliberate plan to use the employees to draw maximum work, or 2) The management is not capable of forcasting/analysing the project in terms of time and manpower.

    In my career, I have witnessed the most insensitive and mean minded approach from a company towards its employees.

    I would like to mention here, my review is not about NIIT as a whole, its about the experiance at my workplace. It is my unbiased review.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No matter how good the creaters are, if supervisors under them are not doing good, it is assumed (deemed) that the treatment is approved by the creaters.

    To the Top-notch creators of NIIT, it is my humble request for you to understand the fact that employees should be treated like an asset and not like a liability. You need to ensure that no devil scamp should exercise their own rules.

    Good place for Instructional designers, graphical designers and managers, but worst place for technical people.

    Former Employee - Senior Technical Team Member in Gurgaon, Haryana (India)
    Former Employee - Senior Technical Team Member in Gurgaon, Haryana (India)

    I worked at NIIT full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Entirely e-learning centric, fresh graduates and GNIIT passouts get nice opportunity to begin the career. Good for Instructional designers, graphical designers and middle level managers. Pays relatively high to experienced candidates. Onsite offsite team gives you slight exposure.

    Cons

    No development plan for the employees specially technical team. You tend to work more but gain relatively very less knowledge. Will not be able to shift domain. Very very far from Delhi, Ghaziabad, Nioda as well as Gurgaon. Poor salary structure for beginners and prolonged inmates. Not recommended for technical aspirants. No proper technical training provided in many technologies. The timings are too early to save the traffic but inadequate shuttle timings from the Metro station. Canteen is pathetic and offers less variety.

    Pros

    HR Policies, Relaxed Work, Rewards atmosphere….

    Cons

    Politics, Vintage, unnecessary experimentation, High Noise-Low productivity environment
    The company has been around for 30 year now; The Head of HR is a woman from a Marketing background who is not qualified to be in HR. A large section of employees have been with the company for 10+ years & have found a “comfort zone”. Integrity is merely a value and has nothing to do with reality in NIIT. The profit margins are low hence the salaries are not competitive .
    If you are moving from a bigger brand name to NIIT… don’t!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1) Retire & Let some fresh blood into the top management. 2) Take a closer look
