    I worked at Polaris FT full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    1. Good presence in banking products and services.
    2. Work life balance is reasonably okay.

    Cons

    1. Too much politics.
    2. The CEO seems to be far removed from day to day management that is run by independent CEOs.
    3. Presence in insurance limited compared to other services and product companies.
    4. Staff functions like HR seem to have no say in the company. They have no means to check high handedness by managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    First clarify the goal and vision of the company. And then walk the talk.

    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 ..

    Pros

    No managers to monitor your work.

    Cons

    None of the managers or HR are reachable. If you have any grievance keep it to yourself

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Diversify management. 1 HR cannot manage 500-1000 employees and their requests.
