The only merit of working at this place is the job security. The company culture is such that it rarely lays off it's employees. However, this does not mean that the company has a very good work culture, it's just that they do not want to spend time on hiring and mentoring new employees on cost of laying off an older one.

Dislikes

The company has very poor work-life balance, minimal to nil appraisals. You're not allotted tasks according to your caliber/interest and the work environment is very hectic with a lot of load on almost all of it's employees. Additionally, the planning of managers is also very poor which leads to provision of last minute tasks to the employees. Also, you might be called to the office on almost every Saturday/holiday, sometimes even on Sundays for multiple consecutive weeks.

Work

The work for me is very hectic with many last minute and unplanned tasks provided which lead to late night working (till 11pm-1am).

Apart from HR initiatives like organising Fun activities occassionally,Sport events ,etc. there is not much to like about the company.They(HR) are useless and don't give proper answers when you go with your problems to them. Worst environment to work.Worst work culture ever.Manger possesses worst or rather no management skill.They just need donkeys who can just nod in their agreement to what they say.No work life balance.12-14 long working hours on every weekdays.Almost every weekend working.They will ask to work even on public holidays as well. On top of it,unnecessary leave deductions in the name of coming late even for a minute after 9:30 a.m even though U have worked late night before & left the office 12 a.m.Disgusting rules to deduct leaves of the employees to discourage them from taking the leaves.This also means deducting your salaries as they deduct your Earned leaves

Dislikes

Already mentioned above.

The Experience Depends on the Project and Managers.

Dislikes

Actually I joined in a company called Laser Soft Infosystems Ltd. But it was acquired by Polaris by 2010-11. The the seperated Polaris as Intellect (Product Division) and Polaris [Services). No Flexible Timing/ Guidance. Most project Directors are not aware of any Domains/ not even trying / interested to understand the actual requirement/Situation. They blindly follow the same protocol for all Customers/ Projects. Always tries to cut resources of course they will make a team with even one member and pressurize him to do all works which is not even relevant to his Designation/role. The Managers will be happy if u stay 24 hrs in office even without contributing.

Work

What I have writtten in the above Para was my actual Experience at Intellect. But that was by 2104-2016. Hope that might have not changed as most of my colleagues have resigned but the Managerial staffs are still same.

Only thing i like here is Working domain i.e, FINTECH .

Dislikes

1- No flexible timings (i.e, you have to report at -9:30 am daily ) , and if you are not following this rule your leaves will be deducted.

2- There is nothing like Gymnasium,indoor games and any recreational activity area.
3- No perks and benefits are provided to the associates.

4- Team outings - better you forget this word .

5- You won't get anything free here , not even a cup of tea .

6- You can't opt for Work from home until and unless any cyclone hits the city.

7- No free transport .

8- Now comes food- if you are non-veg then you will be disappointed to hear that there is nothing for you in the menu .(not even eggs).
For North indians - You won't find anything good to eat here.

Work

Nothing excited here, consider this only if you are unemployed and sitting at home.

Being a Product based and BFSI domain company, Intellect Design Arena Ltd (IDAL) was an exciting opportunity for me, where I learned lot of things which is required for your career growth. It was the platform for me where my hard work was recognized and appraised by my seniors and company as well. I would like to recommend everyone to join and work with this company.

Dislikes

I hardly find any drawback with this company. I feel it's all about our responsibilities. Any company is recognised by good work and good people only.

Work

Initially it was really challenging for me because of number of factors but gradually those challenges made me to Learn lot of things which is required for your career growth. Overall it was really pleasure and exciting opportunity for me

I am working with this company from last seven years. Earlier, it had known as Polaris Software Lab Ltd then they kept changing the names.
The good part working with this organization is its recognized your efforts & if you have patients, you will get what you deserved. The work culture is healthy. HR team keeps motivating you if you have true potential & positive attitude.

Dislikes

Hectic working hours is the biggest drawback. Sometimes your manager/clients are expecting you to work on weekends & it will not compensate at all.

The most lovable thing about Intellect is, its culture. For Each and Every festival, they organize very well.

Dislikes

Because of Hike Cycles and its policies

Work

Its Overall a good place to work, but you will get Your hike only after 18 months from DOJ. social activities are good. they won't show discrimination in celebrating festivals. They give equal value for all religions. On a scale of 5, I will give 3.8.
