    I have been working at Polaris FT

    Pros

    Now-n-Then opportunity to learn new things.

    Cons

    No benefits package as such including Medical.
    Low Pay scale compared to market rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensation has been a BIG step back for a long time when compared to other companies in the same financial sector. Money is not everything as long as we don't feel the need for it. Not many people would persist in a low paying environment.
