    Off Shore management people are egoistic and very selfish. They don't bother about employee situation. Very much based.

    Pros

    Small Company; Once if we proven our records, then based on managers grace we will get lot; Even if you did good; if manager don't like all the good things won't be highlighted and you will be sucked ... We can get visas if we prove our best.

    Cons

    No matching Salary as per industry standard; Take Home (Net Salary) will be less when compare to other company even though the Gross Income is same; Need to struggle lot to get the salary like putting paper and then they will consider; Recognition will not be happen if the resource is in R&A , T&M mode. Very few managers and seniors are Employee friendly.. will try to address our issues;

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need lot of scrutiny on Sales side; Need tracker for them what is the new accounts that they brought in .. whether are they sitting and enjoying in the old accounts which exists or not ... Need to step foot in all the areas like TCS, Infosys so that company may grow stronger ..

    I have been working at Polaris FT full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Family atmosphere, no one bothers regarding appraisals, training, etc. which is good. They dont care how you are especially if at client site since they care only about billing. Thus good for client facing resources

    Cons

    Management cadre are mostly crooks. They inflate tremendously data to project growth, knowing the system never bothers to audit. Feeds only that information which will satisfy their superiors, dare not question especially the CEO. CEO lives in a dream world thinking his company is as great as top 3 management companies, because thats what his reports feed him.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let go of 70% of current management especially those who are so called partners.
