    Pros

    Nice people to work with

    Cons

    The Company does not support their consultants, and throw them under the bus. The value of the company is a 30% profit margin.. They will use inferior resources overseas to pad profit margins. Once your contract is up... You are gone. No additional opportunities. Consultant handles all expenses and then when the client severs relationship. the comsultant is left without a home, and the bills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would suggest that management learns that being a body shop is the quickest way to lose market growth

    Pros

    Decent client base , project variety , competitive pay etc

    Cons

    This company is not suitable for women . Highly biased towards men . Women are treated as HR/admin workers, or glorified baits for sales meetings . Women in management are rare onsite, and if there are a few , they are expected to look pretty and dress provocatively during customer meetings . HR team is powerless and the men in senior management are crude and crack double meaning jokes in presence of women associates . It is humiliating and degrading to women employees .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try and implement HR policies to protect women in the organization . The CEO is from Infosys and some of the women encouraging policies of Infosys can be implemented here .

    Polaris has a potential to become to match the calibre of TCS and Infoysy and should concentrate on how to provide value added services to end clients.
