    Pros

    If unemployment is the only other alternative - it's better than that. Finding your way into the Virtusa organization is the only reason to go to this cesspool.

    Cons

    Polaris is poorly managed by an incompetent and sadistic CEO flanked by a clueless and sinister COO. The company has a deal-by-deal mentality and survives on a life line from its one largest customer. Everyone I know who works there is unhappy and is waiting to get laid off because it was recently acquired by Virtusa. All the best talent is long gone.

    Advice to Management

    Replace the leadership with qualified people and fully merge the operation into Virtusa.

    Pros

    nice recruiting team to work with.

    Cons

    A dying company bought by Virtusa on March 3rd is undergoing rapid changes. No job is safe at this point. If you are concerned about job stability, you should be. I can assure you there are "rationalization" and "optimization" plans. Forced resignations, yes that's happening too at offshore and onsite locations.
    Also, no moral or ethical values at this company since acquisition. People will do anything to keep their jobs. It's really quite pathetic and reminds me of high school bullying.

    Advice to Management

    Virtusa...you're not handling this well. You're keeping the wrong people at the top at one major account. You need to move them out quickly. Few things you should know:
    Competition is kicking our butts!
    Some employees like to "create a lot of smoke" and then "save" the relationship. It's not real. There's no smoke. It's manipulation.
