    Pros

    Great HR policies, good work culture and supervisors. Great learning platform, you get to learn a lot

    Poor pay scale, slow growth, too much of work to handle. Only people who grow are the ones who can play good politics and take credit of other people's work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give growth to deserving candidates on performance, not on their face value and PR skills

    I worked at NIIT full-time

    Pros

    People are friendly and are ready to teach new languages and help out people whenever the need arises. Nothing to lose as there is much to learn with latest technologies

    Cons

    the teaching sometimes accelerates at high speed making the learners a bit difficult to understand. fees is a little higher when compared to other centers. Oracle certified learning is the only benefit other certifications hold little value
