"Polaris Automation has been a wonderful company to work for. With over 25 years in manufacturing, I feel I bring a perspective that adds value to the overall team. The value system at Polaris, along with the active practice of work life balance, are a breath of fresh air. When I found myself exploring the job market a year ago, one company I had dealt with as a customer in the past kept coming to mind, Polaris Automation. The fact Polaris is an ESOP also influences every decision I personally make since I am not just an employee but have a true, vested interest in continued success and growth. The level of expertise I’ve encountered at Polaris is second to none. I am surrounded by people with diverse experience and a laser-focused vision on how to achieve that vision. There is a methodical and defined plan for sustained growth. Opportunities are evaluated to see if they are the best fit for our expertise and align with our philosophy of building relationships and long-term customers. It is so much more than just a job; it really feels like everyone is pulling in the same direction toward the goal."

"I have been with Polaris Automation for many years. One of the things I value most about working for this company is their compassion and care for their employees. I have several examples of the company putting my wellbeing ahead of what customers were needing, and possibly ahead of the best interest of the company at those particular times. They value their employees and strive to make sure they are happy. They truly understand that happy employees will ultimately be better for the company and customers."

"Watching this company progress and transform for over 15 years has regularly reminded me that I’m in the right place. Polaris encourages
growth, education, and advancement both personal and companywide. Their commitment to keep all staff through and after COVID solidified it
even further. I’m not just happy here, I’m better here."

"Working for Polaris Automation has been very rewarding and a great move in my career. When I reflect on my time here, two words immediately
come to mind: opportunity and culture. During my tenure at Polaris, I have held six different job titles across four different areas in the business,
each offering different ways to expand my skills and grow as an engineer and professional. All these moves were made possible by the direction
and peer mentorship offered from the engineers and leaders in our organization. The ownership culture and team atmosphere mean that no one
is on an island despite our fully remote structure. Everyone wants to see everyone else succeed, enabling and promoting excellence in our
company via the collective experience of our talented professionals. Since Polaris is 100% employee owned, it is our company, and everyone
who joins has a stake in it. From profit sharing to ESOP, we all benefit as we succeed. In short, Polaris Automation is a company that’s growing,
and a company that fosters the growth of its people, with excellence and ownership engrained in its culture."

"Our Company is built on relationships. To understand what that means you really don’t have to look any further than our purpose: ‘Improve the
lives and careers of our customers and our Owners by diligently focusing on nurturing relationships that advocate continuous improvement.’
That one sentence speaks volumes about what it is like to work at Polaris. People focused, awesome environment to learn and grow, the sky is
