    I worked at NIIT full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Teamwork, Respect, Conscience, Trust & Integrity are core of Values displayed.
    Did not face any Politics in my Tenure of 4.5 years in Two Departments i worked for
    Leadership team is Approachable, best is your are Heard and encouraged to speak without Fear
    Here they hate to use the word 'Employee' because you are partner a builder of the organisation and an NIITian.

    Cons

    Find a person whop haven't made a Bad decision or is not constrained, As they say 'Tough times never Last Tough people do'

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What you see from above, I may have no idea.
    But i do have an idea what i see from here.

    General Chat casually from NIITians on speaking up without fear as they do on what they think feel hear may help!

    Pros

    Secure Job even for below average performer.

    Compensation is low.
    If you are good in oiling (chaaplusi), you may no need to work at all. Hence pressure come to good people who actually works.

    Pros

    NIIT is known for it's brand name and it provides opportunities to learn as much as you want occasionally.

    Cons

    Policies are the best in the company but the management did not let the employees to take the advantages of these policies. For example, appraisal policy is worst and management decides the appraisal on the basis of their wish as to who should get how much hikes on the salary not on the basis of their performance...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please don't be biased and be supportive to your employees.

    I worked at NIIT full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Very FUTURISTIC, Organized & Planned, Good peoples, environment and good salary.

    Cons

    In Network centers their implementation becomes very weak due to many reasons out of which the most common is the difference of opinion between the NIIT Ltd. work culture and Franchisee's work culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Franchisee's contribution should be monitory only. Every NWC in India must be headed by an NIIT Ltd. employee who has good marketing as well as technical know how.
