Nihilent is a very good company and adopts always latest technologies,It is a group of 4 companies and have major projects from South Africa.
I worked in Azure technologies and MSBI in Nihilent,a very good work and life balance can be felt working here.
Appraisal's are better than MNC's ,this can be a company to get settled.
Dislike is about the forceful execution of South Africa visa process for every employee,which may cost a person Rs.50,000 compensation while leaving job in case company sends you or not to South Africa,you have to bear the cost.
Cafeteria is very small,only 70 people capacity for D building,B building is having a big cafeteria.
Parking issue is a worst in Nihilent,limited amount of Bike/Car parking available,if you are coming after 9:30 am closed parking will be full,If you are coming after 10 am open parking will be full,then if you park outside the IT park police will pickup you vehicle and you will be fined around 1000.
Salary slip is not very tax friendly as compared to MNC's
I got all opportunities to explore new technologies and provide estimate,and work will be done as per your estimate,so you can drive your work without any pressure.
Good learning and Career growth I achieved in Nihilent.
There were few ups and downs but overall had a nice time at onsite. But that is too at an personal level. Nothing to like as such from professional growth perspective.
If you are not a blue eye boy, you are gone. Upper management is highly disconnected with associates and middle management is highly immature in terms of giving proper feedback to upper management. Absence of 360 review is giving all the super natural powers to the people who dont even understand the essence of appraisals. According to them the one who is sitting late and sacrificing his/her weekends are the top associates. Internal politics has enthused the mind of upper and middle management leaving associates in despair. No pick and drop facility even if you are staying late for a project work. No upskilling being advised or appreciated. No tie-ups with any educational institution or e-learning sites.
Before i start reviewing, i shall let you know that I'm a J2EE developer in my company, working for Nedbank. I learnt many things from my own and experienced even more than that in my project, let it be handling exceptions or tackling challenges in your code, writing clean and optimised code, all from my Design Lead. Basically i experienced much within a year and recieved awards too. I joined as a fresher and now recently i completed my one year. Thanks to all my colleagues and superiors. I love my job here and i aspire to be an architect one day.
Everything is as where it should be for me at Nihilent. Few things can be improved , like parking problem, but that's not in the hands of company. The building restricts number of parking slots per company. Rest like politics is everywhere 😋
1. Very cheap management and no great visionary leader in company.
2. Doing side business by charging Visa and critical fees to employees at time of separation and did not mention anything like in any agreement.
3. If you are not traveling to South Africa then you may get threat from management
4. No R&D
5. No technical growth
