    Fast moving, allow new employees to take on high visibility projects, rewarding.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Medina, MN

    ProsNon-monentary benefits (discounts)
    Profit sharing
    401k match by company
    Upper management is driven and knowledgeable
    Great coworkers that are hard working

    ConsRun very lean
    sometimes not enough personnel to get the job done correctly
    always pressed for time (read: high stress at times)
    a TON of tribal knowledge exists (no official on-boarding process / varies by dept)

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf HR is going to tout product use as a benefit - don't make it a challenge to use the product (the ability to obtain and ride products (if you don't work at the Wyo facilitiy) is very hard to do)

    Give employees a chance to move up and forward at Polaris, opportunities to advance in some depts. are hard to come by.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good people, tight IT budget

    Technology (Former Employee)
    Plymouth, MN

    ProsPolaris has lots of talented people in the technology department. Polaris has a great sales culture that knows how to get results and meet aggressive goals. The company also provides great benefits and bonuses.. 20% and above is a realistic expectation for performers.

    ConsPolaris doesn't respect information security or technology investment like they should. Too busy rubbing pennies together for a company with goals to grow to $10B and beyond in revenue. They need to spend less time worrying about whatever fad tech sales people are pitching to executives, and focus on developing a faster, more resilient, and more secure infrastructure.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSpend more money on technology. What do you think drives your business?

    Best Powersports Company in the World

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Minneapolis, MN

    ProsAwesome product, passionate employees, work hard play hard, highly functional staff, financially stable company

    ConsWork life balance, politics, HR, low pay, never offline- never

    Advice to Senior ManagementWe used to have leaders in positions of mgmt., now we have managers. The organization has become top heavy with people who manage and do not lead. Take a hard look at why people are leaving.

    Great Place to Work

    Sales Representative (Current Employee)
    Minneapolis, MN

    ProsFast Paced, Fun Culture, Work Hard / Play Hard Environment. At Polaris - you are constantly growing and constantly being challenged. It's a phenomenal company to work for.

    ConsYou work long hours at Polaris and are always "on." Vacations typically mean you still respond to e-mails and the occasional conference call. But, the concept of being "plugged in" is also something that keeps me engaged in the companies success.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep it Up!

    It was overall not bad.

    Anonymous (Former Employee)

    ProsThey offer a good starting pay and some benefits. They are decent to work for. And after 90 days you are eligible to roll over from temerity staff to fill time Polaris staff.

    ConsSometimes long hours with overtime pay depending on your status. Make you a slave of labor. They are not willing to work with you if you need to stay on a certain shift, forcing you to a different shift.

    A fun place to work with great perks.

    Engineer, Accessories (Former Employee)
    Wyoming, MN

    ProsCutting edge tools and procedures. Decent pay, with a focus on the welfare of their employees. Excellent management and opportunities for advancement.

    ConsVery fast paced environment doesn't allow for much reflection on the problem at hand. They make an interesting product and it is used as a lure more so than straight compensation.
