    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..
