    High turn over.

    I have been working at NIIT

    Pros

    Pushing to establish software delivery business.

    Cons

    Hire before they actually have a contract and push push push. Sixty hours for forty hours pay. Slow to cover expenses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to learn the team concepts of Scrum. The team is supposed to be empowered.
    In Scrum there is no Project Manager running the team. Sixty hour weeks of pushing is not sustainable.

    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

    Pros

    Growth opportunities. It also gave me an opportunity to travel and get an exposure to different cultures. Being a training company, it invests very heavily in its employees' training.

    Cons

    The only con working with NIIT is the compensation part.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I could see company was working hard to bring compensation at par with industry but I am not sure how effective it has been. This was one of the main reasons I decided to look for other opportunities.
