Unfortunately, once again, I see a personal decision being influenced by a thread that had lots of ex-employees of a company venting their bad experiences.
First of all congratulations on your offer. Polaris is now a Citigroup company with Citi having a major investment. As mentioned, Citi is one of their biggest clients while they also have a presence in Japan and S E Asia. Of late their banking product is being implemented in middle east as well as Europe. As with any company, you might want to ask the HR personnel about the project that you would be placed in. They do handle some key corporate / investment / retail banking products for Citigroup and other banks.
Good Luck and please come to an objective decision, after due-diligence. After all you are the decision-maker when it comes to your career.
It's not that all ex-employees will advice against joining their ex-company. I would still love to go back to one of my ex-company (a small start-up) but never to Polaris.
My main gripe is HR policies. want an example? Few days back an employee was flown to onsite on the cheapest availble airlines. That's a low-cost airlines which doesn't even serve snacks, forget about the meal. Guess what excuse HR gave for that stupid arrangement? "company is not doing good. you have to compromise"
I can narrate countless such experience's during my short stint.
now good things, you can find really good work in some projects.

thanks very much
but i havn't got job in polaris
first i've written an exam (scjppattern)and qualified with first best score and then attended 2nd round (technical round with 2 project managers)
As i written my java exam well they were just checking my skills in database
as i was very poor in databse i couldn't make them happy those 2 interviewers were clever and found that i am good at programming than writing queries.
so hoping for the best they may surely call me for the final round(HR) so what package they are offering for 2+ experienced java/j2ee guy's
A = HARDWORK B = LUCK/FATE If C=(A+B) then C=SUCCESSFUL IN LIFE else C=FAILURE IN LIFE
Yeah, but does being a ninja come with a dental plan? And what about this tiny ad?
