    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.

    I worked at NIIT full-time

    Pros

    People are friendly and are ready to teach new languages and help out people whenever the need arises. Nothing to lose as there is much to learn with latest technologies

    Cons

    the teaching sometimes accelerates at high speed making the learners a bit difficult to understand. fees is a little higher when compared to other centers. Oracle certified learning is the only benefit other certifications hold little value
