    ProsGreat company to work for not only because of the salaries but because of the people who works in. You will find help everywhere when you need it to learn new things or to achieve goals. Family is very important not only for the employee but also for the Organization. Very good health benefits for the employee and family. Quality, passion, joy and commitment define this Company.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe work-life is very good balanced in Empresas Polar. From the date you start until your last day as a employee, you will have training, good compensation and such a good bosses.

    ConsThe company is always looking for new products and challenges so employees have to be learning constantly to achieve goals. Sometimes Employees have a lot o different projects which can create a negative stress environment. About promotions some people think that company is not completely fair, however I consider that a not objective judgment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue motivating their teams-work and creating more and more jobs for our country. It is important for Management to lead company values all the time.
