    Good futuristic company effected by "Mean-spirited" superiors

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

    ProsCompany 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".

    ConsWhen 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 Senior ManagementNo 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

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

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

    ProsEntirely 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.

    ConsNo 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.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Experiments can go wrong…

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsHR Policies, Relaxed Work, Rewards atmosphere….

    ConsPolitics, 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 Senior Management1) Retire & Let some fresh blood into the top management. 2) Take a closer look

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
