    Disapproves of CEO

    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 Management

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


  2. Not great, The company didnt give me any opening in Delhi even after working with them for 2 years

    NIIT Guideline and system architecture for management and education delivery is very good but it must be follow as per the NIIT norms in each and every center. They should check the Network Center for the integrity of Education Delivery.

    NIIT: The worst place to work

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Senior Management

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    1. A good brand that established itself in the e-learning domain but has been losing it's hold continuously for the last 5 years. 2. Excessive work pressure and system driven, you learn how to work within controls and challenges. Makes you tough. 3. Best place to stay if you are good at manipulating things. You just need to be good at communicating and coming up with reasons for not doing a job and pointing out a person on which you can shift the blame.

    Cons

    1. A pathetic work culture. No work-life balance. No reward or recognition for smart work and excessive dedication. Your performance is judged by the number of hours you stay in office. 2. There are several senior people in the organization who have been with NIIT for more than a decade (may be two decades). Most of these don't want new people to grow in the organization. Facts are manipulated and reports presented to the top management without any discussions at ground level. 3. HR has minimum involvement or personal support to the employees. The HR function has no dignity and is thoroughly governed by whims and fancies of the senior management. 4. For general employees, the annual salary raises are less than the inflation rate of the country. [Do note this doesn't apply to the senior employees and the management, seems like they eat away all the budget]. So, if you decide to join, negotiate the best at the time of joining.

    Advice to Management

    Please frame a culture of skip level meetings and talk to people at ground level to know the realities. Don't be governed ONLY by what you say or hear from the Delivery Heads, Senior PMs or people who have been in the organization for several years.
