    Pros

    Some of the people were very nice and friendly. Medical benefits are generous.

    Cons

    You're expected to give 190%. Expect to work double-time and paid less than average. There was no training, making it difficult to efficiently perform the necessary responsibilities of the role. Receive phone calls and emails at ALL HOURS of the days, nights, weekends, scheduled PTO and vacation, sick days, and most holidays (staff doesn't celebrate standard U.S. holidays, unless major holidays). Much of the staff can be very moody - perhaps because they were also working at all hours like I was - getting only a few hours of sleep. I don't recommend working with NIIT if you have a family, as there is no work-life balance. All of that being said, if you're willing to provide a company with "a pound of flesh" with a CHEAP company, you'll fit right in!

    Advice to Management

    Provide staff with what they need to be productive. Pay better salaries. Respect employees' personal time.

    Pros

    Good compensation, good benefits. If you have the right management channels you will do fine. You need to be self motivated and run your own priorities.
    You can negotiate a decent salary a bit higher than the industry average.
    Liberal time off policies and vacation.

    Cons

    You can get lost in numbers. The salary you can negotiate is what you will you have for the future.
    If you don't negotiate the right deal up front you will be stuck.
    Fair pay for a fair days work with mostly cost of living raises.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management must check the pulse of the middle managers and assure they are consistent with company values. Many of the senior VP's are top quality and this does not flow through the organization.

    good healthcare plan, you can day a day off without informing your manager if you are working at client location.

    Cons

    no perks, expect to work under pressure, 12-14 hours a day. good policies but non are implemeted

    Advice to Management

    get rid of your middle management team, they always have a deaf ears to their subordinates and never allow them to grow. 50% of people quit because of your middle management team
