      Pros

      Great culture - fun place to work. Great people. Amazing products. Flexible schedules makes for great work life balance. Just be productive and efficient - and get results. Total compensation is solid as well -base+bonus+equity+401k+ESOP for salaried employees, along with access to free product use.

      Cons

      None that I can think of at this time. I think senior management is doing a great job - every company has pockets of pain (bad managers, team members, challenge issues etc.) but in total Polaris is outstanding.

      Pros

      Lots of smart young people to work with. Fun products.

      Cons

      no work-life balance, work demands can mean you have no time to enjoy, or even experience, the fun products you work on. Management doesn't care about employees or quality of product.
