Hard Reality of IIM Shillong 1 year course.
Placements: Out of 26 students only 14 students got placed by Placement cell, rest 5 got job after many difficulties through outside sources. 6 students are still struggling for getting a job after 5.5 months of course end. The highest Placement India- 20 LPA the highest Placement Outside- 28LPA the lowest placement - 10LPA Top Roles - Sr. Consultant by Cognizant & Accenture.
Infrastructure: Facilities were not upto the mark, no proper infrastructure. Every time internet issues in the campus, no special tools were provided to faculty members for online teaching like good camera, sound system. Out of 1.15 hr session, 20 minutes wasted in connecting to the platform. Canteen food is the worst, rely on outside food if you have money to spend.
Faculty: All teachers and study materials used were too old, not new technologies used for teaching. Even study materials need to be updated to keep students upto date from the changing market conditions. No it doesn't make the student industry ready, that's why still students are struggling to get job. Semester exams are too easy to clear.
Other: I chose this college for the IIM tag but got the reality after entering the college. Nothing best happened to our batch as we were Covid Victim. First of all college need to understand the market needs and remove the "n" no of cultural courses from the curriculum. Cultural courses are just reducing the no of courses and it doesn't give any benefit to the students.

Review of IIM Shillong - Indian Institute of Management.
Placements: Placements were stellar here. From a batch of 197 students, almost 100% of the students got placed in various domains ranging from product management to investment banking to brand manager. Marquee companies like JP Morgan, ITC, Godrej, Microsoft, Google, PepsiCo, Nomura, etc., visited here for placements. The average salary package offered was approximately 18.7 LPA, while the median salary package offered will be 17 LPA. Almost 100% of the students got a summer internship offer through college placements.
Infrastructure: Our campus is spread over 120 acres with access to high-speed internet and smart classrooms and a state-of-the-art library. Hostels are clean and hygienic with all the essential mess and cleaning services. Basketball court, badminton court and TT tables are also available here.
Faculty: Faculty members are best in class here. All the faculty members are top scholars, PhD holders and have extensive corporate experience. Their teaching methodology is based on case studies discussion with special emphasis on the applicability of the knowledge. We regularly have interactive sessions with industry experts to boost our knowledge.

Satisfied with the life at IIM Shillong.
Placements: The highest package of the batch 2020 was 40 LPA (domestic) and the average package was approximately 18 LPA. 100% students were placed in Finals as well as the Internships. The highest stipend for internships was 3 LPA for 2 months given by Aditya Birla Group. Most of the students were placed in Consulting and Marketing companies.
Infrastructure: Being a temporary campus, it lacks in various basic amenities like Sports facilities, computer labs etc., but the campus is strategically located. All the basic requirements are available nearby. We would be shifting to the new campus this year. The hostel rooms are small and double or triple sharing. The mess food is not good.
Faculty: Some of the teachers are very helpful and highly qualified, but that can not be said about the majority. Many faculty members are unable to grasp the attention of students. Minimum of 85% attendance is mandatory in each subject. Each subject has 20 sessions and there are 7-8 subjects taught in a trimester. The 1st year's curriculum can be a bit improvised .

I am satisfied with the college.
Placements: Around 100% of the students get placed, even if everyone is not offered a very good salary package. The top recruiting companies of our college are Goldman Sachs, Amazon, ITC, etc. The highest domestic salary package offered was 40 LPA, and the average salary package offered was approximately 18 LPA. Internships provided are 100%.
Infrastructure: The campus is quite small, but you will fall in love with the small campus in 2 years. It is in a good location. All the basic amenities are available nearby. The Wi-Fi is fine. Everyone has their laptops so there are no labs. Classrooms are not semi-circular, but they are fine. Sports facilities are not good. The hostel rooms are small and sharing. The quality of food served is below average and the canteen rarely has any food.
Faculty: The course curriculum is fine. Plenty of case studies were given and faculty members expected us to read them and come. The quality of the teachers is good. We also have many visiting faculty members from other premier schools. The course curriculum is relevant and helps the students in their years ahead.
