    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.

    Pros

    1. Company has a nice body shopping art of doing business which keeps it going and also keeps the clients happy.

    2. Company will try its best to consider your aspirations and find a project matching your skills and needs. Not many companies do this.

    3. Company offers job stability and at times rewards monetarily or provides encouragement through emails if you are doing well or you add value to the company.

    4. The longer one stays with Polaris the more he/she is able to procure the cream from the cake or I should say able to cherry pick from the cake. Company treats such people well.

    5. Company has a solid presence in key banking and financial domains such that one can develop both technical and domain skills at the same time.

    6. Company gives you the platform to stand on your own feet and work independently as long as client is happy. Not many companies allow this. Ref - Account manager's ruthlessness in TCS, CTS, Infy etc

    Cons

    1. Company seems to be unwell financially these days. Not enough volume of business.

    2. Company was in news in 2013 for takeovers by other firms. This is not good for the long term image of the company.

    3. In some areas of the company too much politics and too much time wasted on processes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please try to grow the company by adding new business from more banks/financial institutions.

    Big player in financial sector,innovative products, good focus on marketing, better than average salary, work culture is ok, not great not bad.

    Cons

    Not concentrating on other divisions like ERP/ Service sector, HR should work more closely with associates , onsite associates are not given preference in team building or other social activities

    Pros

    If they are desperate enough to hire you, you can strike a bargain

    Cons

    No value for employees' personal life.
    Company culture is such that people shout at each other in all discussions.
    The senior management is filled with folks who are not fit to get a job elsewhere so they are sticking around.
    Zero Work ethics or people management skills with the management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the non-functioning layer and accept you are a body-shopping company.
    Send your management to people management and anger management training before any employee files a court case on employee harassment.
