    I have been working at NIIT full-time (more than 3 years)

    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 have been working at NIIT full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    NIIT provides a great learning environment. Almost all people swear by the learning they received while working for NIIT.
    Open culture enables people to approach all levels of management.
    Fun loving people and environment, parties, outings, bonding with colleagues
    Generally a good flexible working environment. People make adjustments to special needs colleagues.

    Cons

    Tends to be bureaucratic and hierarchical, everything needs approval.
    Not able to convert great ideas into actions. Needs to be more nibble footed in moving ahead with actions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Could do with more empowerment to people at each level. Figure out a way to get out of bureaucratic culture.
