    Great stepping Stone for IT experience but limited staff lead to constantly overworked situations

    Information Technoglogy (Former Employee)
    Augusta, GA

    ProsI learned a lot while working at Niit Media Technologies. My coworkers were great and my boss was also okay. The pay I negotiated was decent and it was more so a large startup company that was composed of two companies working together on areas that they were already working in. Anything that I worked on to get things working was a step in the right direction and that brought great satisfaction to everyday job fulfillment.

    ConsStaffing was an issue since shortly before I started working there and got worse as worked there. Before I was hired the company laid off something to the tune of 30% to 40% of it's workforce due to the fact that no really buys news papers anymore. The IT department was very understaffed for the amount of business units and locations that were supported. Offshore support was hired to fill the gap of the fact that there were hardly any American employees on site at HQ. Due to that offshore support the language barrier was EXTREMELY frustrating and things constantly got passed over the fence to the support members at the HQ.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees because some of their ideas could have saved the company tons of money. It's never a good idea to fire majority of your employees at the HQ's of all places and then hire people overseas to try and fill that void.

    Moderate salary, HR policy won't allow you to leave the company easily

    Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)

    ProsVariegated learning opportunity; moderate salary

    ConsHR policy traps you into staying with them forever

    Advice to Senior ManagementTrain employees properly; imposing huge fines to leave the company in the name of bond is ridiculous

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    In sales role at this company that had a limited promo and travel budget

    Business Development Manager (Former Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsHard working team members trying to make a difference and expand market exposure/presence.

    ConsLocal North America leadership acted like they were still in India doing business. No knowledge or willingness to adapt to local business customs in expanding in the U.S.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTrust your Sector or Vertical VPs to lead the sales and marketing efforts in the region and pick the right people for each initiative based on their experience.

    Neither too bad, nor too good

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsWork here just for experience. Since the resource pool is limited chances are people early in their career get good opportunities. Manage your boss here and that is the important part!

    ConsPersonal growth is limited as is the professional growth. Managers most if not all, are not worth sticking around for and are unprofessional. Lots of regional bias.

    – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
