    I worked at Polycom full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Did a great job of hiring good, qualified people. Comp was a bit higher than industry average. Treated sales team well while I was there. Great cafe and gym. Ability to work from home. Excellent quality in terms of products. Customer loyalty is very high. Good, recognizable name in IT.

    Cons

    Finance ran company as opposed to sales. Innovation lacking in terms of new markets. Hardware focus vs. software. New CEO is trying to change things up however. Problem resolution can take forever for certain issues. In past upper management was a bit detached from "real world." This may not be the case today.

    Advice to Management

    Transition into adjacent markets. Cut back on video investment. More aggressive partnerships with smaller/nimble tech companies.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Polycom (Denver, CO) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Did two phone interviews. The first was with a woman in human relations who didn't seem to know much about the position. She was more of a general screener. Second interview was with someone in the department I was apply within. She had much more information, but could't answer questions regarding pay and benefits, which should be directed at the original interviewer. That was a bit annoying.
