Timings here are a bit flexible. No minute to minute time tracking here. People are also kind of friendly. Lots of freshers and so you find much talented youngsters around.

Dislikes

Lots of "BTech" "BSc" differentiation. Company is good only is you're a BTech Grad. And if you're a BSc Grad you are taken for granted work very low salary which in no way depends upon your talent or hard work. No promotions or ratings as per your work, it all depends upon politics and how you show case yourself even if you don't do any work.

Work

Boring. You don't get recognized for your work. Atleast don't expect that in your salary hike, promotions or ratings.

There are some particular projects consist good teammates they will support you in all situations . Nowadays VirtusaPolaris is taking developers for time beings once projects completes. They will assign you some another project if available, by having senior authorities interval talks else they will ask you move for 'Bench' or ask you to look for some other job . For freshers good place to learn .

Dislikes

No transportation arrangements done . Overtime work, Need to extend work till it completes, not mandatory to sit overtime but next day you need to answer why work has not completed so that's better to extend .

Work

Never choose banking support project will be hectic you cant take leave easily, as well work pressure will be high .

Co-operative employees, co-operative and fruitful nature of HR guys.

Dislikes

Increments are very very low, no added bonus, no or very less awards of very less amount, no shift allowances, very low technical learning, very high quantity of work(have to work for 13-14 hours on a daily basis without any added benefit, no compensatory off is given).

Work

Hectic schedule, have to work for 13-14 hours on a daily basis. There is no technical learning, very old tools are being used. Job security is very low, you will be terminated after 3 months of bench period.

Staff appears to be friendly but in reality they are just to take out their work from you and dump you to client site which emerges to be RBS but in reality it is temple of whores.

Dislikes

Its standards in IT, Admin, HR, Settlement and various other departments.
Management is totally insensitive and appears professional in terms of taking out work from employees and giving them thankless job in return.
Employer retention capacity : Nil

Work

Keeps you on bench with all dilemmas of firing you or sending you to client site for full 2 hours of continuous torture in name of client interview.
If selected donot turn upto Management as Client is their God & you are just a body shop for them.

Good internal communication system in place and cascading of Corporate communication to the teams down the line, is very good.

Dislikes

Upward communication system is very weak. Management review of Projects and connect of the delivery leaders with the teams is very low. Internal communication within the Project teams is also not appreciable.

Work

Delivery and Operations responsibility managing a big team. While the culture prevailed at Polaris before merger is far superior as against the culture prevailing post merger scenario.

Work environment which is friendly.

Dislikes

Atleast the project i worked in was closed for any kind of learning. Even if talent was recognised and there was a chance to change career path, managers dont allow. They are extremely partial and do not allow growth of good employeed. But are encouraging and giving un-necessary attention to people who are not skilled and have no talent. No one speaks even when there is lot of unethical things happening. If someone speaks and protests, the only thing managers know is to release the resource from project.They

This is a good place for freshers. Good place to start the career. Famous for the Testing part in the market. You have flexible timings.

Dislikes

People who have done B.Tech will find this company as best. They are paid more and given more preference than those with B.Sc. We always find a long gap between how B.Tech guys and B.Sc guys are treated and remunerated.

Before merger with Virtusa , Polaris is good place to work
But after merger their policy are not employee friendly. You will get a hike after 2 years. Also the Virtusa people dominate the heritage polaris employees in each sense.
No major clients apart from city. Most of the projects are dominated by the same people from last 20 years. They will not allow to grow lateral hires .

No Job security, You will be thrown out any day. No matters how long you serve to the company. How loyal you are. How experience & senior you are. You will be thrown out by saying "We dont need you anymore. "Our cost going high because of you". Once everythign stable you are working on, you will be out of job.
