I have been working at NIIT

Pros

1. You are entitled to leaves within first week of joining the company.
2. You'll have numerous people to share you plight with! ;-D
3. They are sure trying to promote meritocracy, but looking at people sitting at the top you wonder if it really does exist.

Cons

1. Your just a badge ID no.
2. Management is always right.
3. Opinions don't matter, policies are made to be followed, not questioned.
4. You are expendable.
5. No 2 days are the same at NIIT - well that’s how we rechristened lack of stability/goals.
6. Growth opportunities is practically non existent.
7. HR thinks BS is the way to go. You ask them a question, you'll never get an answer - but what you'll get is loads n loads of BS.
8. Transparency in decision making is NIL.
9. Ethics is a shady term, you are supposed to do what’s right for the customer. But if its between numbers and customers, ask ethics to take a hike and go after the numbers.
10. Over promise and under deliver.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Probably close the company & well open up a chole bathure ki dukaan.....that's what the mgt are made for..

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

    I worked at NIIT as a contractor for less than a 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.
