    I worked at Plantronics

    Pros

    solid financials
    low attrition
    market leadership position (in NA and EU)
    generally nice and friendly people
    interesting technology and strategy

    Cons

    Moves slow: legacy products, culture, and processes make change very painful.
    Little empowerment: many people involved in every decision
    Very little career development, most management positions are recruited externally
    Revolving door at the executive levels

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    groom internal talent in all departments
    empower your domain experts: Product Managers shouldn't be held up as the experts in everything.

    I have been working at Plantronics

    Pros

    > Very strong financials; stock has doubled over the past few years
    > Excellent goals and performance system
    > Extremely well regarded brand among customers, channel partners, and investors
    > Rich heritage
    > High quality products that are changing where and how we work
    > Some brilliant minds (intellectually stimulating environment)
    > Highly esteemed CEO
    > Popular team building events

    Cons

    > As with many tech companies in the Bay Area, more is expected with way less, change happens frequently on many levels, and some of the systems need updating to keep up with the change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    > Don't lose sight of what made this Santa Cruz based company so unique - its human-centered, often quirky, empathetic culture. Its why people love to work there.
