Group Lead (Former Employee) –  Roseau, MNNovember 30, 2017
Polaris was a fast pace workplace that started with a brief meeting with our management team. We were given our assignments, though it was fast pace we were allowed to have fun as long as we were safe.

Great product, serious lack of integrity in upper management
Manager, IT Operations (Former Employee) –  plymouth, MNNovember 11, 2017
Polaris went from the perfect place to work to the worst place to work over the last 2-3 years. Where they were focused on collaboration, thought leadership and delivery, now all that matters is politics, who you know and how much you are willing to compromise your values. Very very sad to see such a great company lose its integrity and future
Pros
great product
Cons
unethical practices

Competitive yet rewarding
District Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Medina, MNNovember 11, 2017
Extremely competitive environment with very top-heavy compensation structure. Although, DSMs were paid fairly, the work-life balance was challenging. Buying into the Polaris culture is the key to staying in the Polaris game as you progress through your career there. There will be opportunities for advancement, and they will be rapid and plentiful.

Great Benefits
Operator (Former Employee) –  LocationOctober 31, 2017
Polaris offers a very competitive benefits package and many other perks of the job. The one thing that is a con is the lack of strategic foresight and planning at the floor level.

Pros

In a small town, not much to do in the area after work

Poor Leadership and Stressful Working Environment
Marketing Specialist (Former Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNOctober 18, 2017
A lot of the leadership is unprofessional and the cause for a high turnover rate within the company. The product they sell is FUN and recreational vehicles, however the work environment is anything but. Competitive pay is the only reason I stayed as long as I did.

Good work environment , bad pay , worse management
weld (Former Employee) –  Madison, ALOctober 10, 2017
They talk a lot about internal advancement and they will, not base on skill or work performance but sucking up. Clean cool work environment that is very nice. If you wanna be stuck in the same spot you hired in at then work very hard and don't complain. After you get past the backward promotions, awful management, and low pay its good place to work.
Pros
Vacation, Clean, and AC
Cons
Management and Pay

Alternate Laser Technician (Current Employee) –  Roseau, MNOctober 5, 2017
Great Pay and Benefits. If you just want a clock in and clock out job that throws you to the wolves as soon as you get there for training this job is for you.

There is no real job progression here at Polaris. The people are nice, but the supervision is lacking to say the least. The place is run on a who you know culture.
Pros

Fast paced stressful work
Staff Packaging Engineer (Current Employee) –  Wyoming, MNSeptember 21, 2017
Short timelines for projects lead to long working days, never have enough time to consider every detail that should be looked at.

Polaris employees typically use terms such as "1A2K" (One as* to kick), if you bring up an issue you own the issue and the solution, every group seems to work in silos.
Pros
Benefits, cool products, relaxed dress code
Cons
Lack of processes and standards, too many managers and not enough workers

LTL (Former Employee) –  Vermillion, SDSeptember 11, 2017
The conditions were not the best; no heat or air conditioning. High up management was not great, the actual leads were usually pretty fair and nice. Easy and repetitive job. Pay was alright. They work really well around school schedules.
