    I worked at NIIT full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great work environment, flexible working hours, friends like colleagues, good HR policies

    Cons

    Too much work pressure in the LSE-Learning Content department (formerly IDD). The senior managers in the department do not properly manage projects, leading to unbearably high work pressure. They also do not have any knowledge of the time that it takes to develop content.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    NIIT is a great company to work. However, as far as my experience in LSE-Learning Content department (formerly IDD) is concerned, improper and inconsiderate management techniques by the senior managers has lead to a great amount of dissatisfaction. Please look into this matter urgently as attrition is at an all time high.
