    I worked at Doherty full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great company. Some very wonderful and inspiring people work for Doherty. Decent PTO, good benefits, lots of incentives. I loved that they gave me freedom to come up with new ideas. Overall I loved my time here, and I had a great boss.

    Cons

    Small, family-owned business so there’s not a ton of room for advancement. Communication can sometimes be difficult between the offices and departments. The industry is stressful by nature, so I witnessed a ton of turnover with entry level people.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! All of the VPs and upper management were great to work with. The owners seem to genuinely care about their employees.

    I worked at Doherty full-time

    Pros

    Allow you to do your job without micromanaging your activity. They are a Family owned business. They provide decent benefits

    Cons

    Promote employees based on tenure instead of previous experience or contribution to company. Unless in a management position within the company they don’t share valuable information.

    I worked at Doherty full-time

    Pros

    If you're interested in Business/HR this is a great place to start. You touch on a lot of different areas: payroll, work comp, legal, employee relations, recruiting, interviewing, etc

    Cons

    In the Southern Branch the hours can be long and stressful. There are a lot of goals to meet, some unrealistic and and you are punished if they are not met. The managers are just that, they do not lead, just bark orders at you while they sit back and socialize with each other.

    Advice to Management

    Get dirty with the team. It's hard to expect others to the work if their leaders are unwilling to do it. Better work/life balance, employees have families.

    I worked at Doherty full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay was good, interview process easy.

    Cons

    None of what was promised by Doherty was actually a reality within Polaris. At orientation, you are told you will be transitioned to permanent Polaris employee at 90 days, provided you don't miss work. I did not meet a single co-worker who transitioned in less than 5 months. I got injured on the job due to damaged equipment that had been reported multiple times. I was told after two weeks that my temp position had ended due to unavailable jobs that fit my restrictions. I am still in a battle with their work comp to pay my medical bills because I "left the job during injury", though leaving was not my choice.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with your employees. Be a little more human and care about your employees.
