    Pros

    Not too many pros that i can think of. Except that I know what interview not to attend next time.

    Cons

    Very strict and unpleasant interview. Questions were random . No time to think the solution. They wanted instant answers.

    Advice to Management

    Be a little pleasant to candidates.

    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 Management

    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.
