    I worked at NIIT Technologies full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Most of the staff are kind. Lunch time is kinda like family time. Everybody brings something and shares and talks.

    Cons

    They certainty take their "pound of flesh," overworked and underpaid. Given more responsibility than could be completed by one person in a week. I often had to take work home, and was always on call.

    It was often difficult for HR to get thongs done quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Be more efficient and thorough. Follow-through is a bit lacking. Encourage employees to help out other employees when they get behind.

    I worked at NIIT Technologies full-time

    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

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

    Cons

    Local 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 Management

    Trust 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.

    I have been working at NIIT Technologies as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    My contact person who works in the Indian office was friendly and easy going. The rate was generous for a contracted employee (without the workload specified).

    Cons

    Although it was so easy to be hired and promised with a good rate, nothing else was specified. No follow-up either. Two initial phone calls midnight my time (Eastern Standard Time in US), one lunch time call, that was it. Two months later, they made me to sign a contract with them over a secured service, a statement of work. When I asked about the platform the contracted work to be delivered, the timeline, the project scope, the category of the content, the same old answer I received was "We will have to ask the client. Will keep you informed", or something like that. They appeared to attempt to answer some of my questions, but failed to call in at the designated time. The contact person took that week off and did not bother to explain later. After a few rounds, I simply gave up. They claimed they had the project in hand, but no work within six months? Only NIIT itself will buy the story. It is not only suspicious, I am at alert if my personal information would be safe with NIIT. I stopped worrying for the work I never had the chance to begin, nor for the amount of time put in to tele-communicate them, or the preparation work invested for the supposedly large work to come. I am worrying about the safety of the info I already gave them. When we doubt the credibility of a business, trust our instinct.

    Advice to Management

    It is easy to ruin a reputation, difficult to build a good one. When the reputation of your business is at stake, your income will be damaged over time. So mean what you said, do what you mean. Be credible.
