I worked at Polaris Industries full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Dynamic organization, decisions are made quickly.
Even with the global recession, Polaris strategy and solid execution guaranteed growth.
Place for vehicle enthusiast. It's fun to ride, to Product launches and talk to customers.
Profit sharing and vehicle leasing for personal use.
Recommend giving it a shot with Polaris.

Cons

Very lean organization, so you are tired by volume of things you can handle.
Fast paced, you are tested on how fast you can run.
Un reasonable expectations from few leaders at sometimes.
Work life balance can be hard depending on which / how lean your dept is.

Advice to Management

Gap is too are large to bridge from Roseau Polaris to Global Polaris.
Remember history and identify true Polaris employees to promote so success can last.
Share the wealth, hire few more people.
I am grateful for days I spent, learned a lot from talented people. My slides now stand out.
Thank you, Polaris made me tough. It was fun ride and may join the wagon in future.
