I have been working at Polycom full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

There are some great and wonderful people working here. They are very knowledgable and creative.

Cons

Very executive top heavy, no long term plans in place, and if you're not from a competing company or "friends" with a manager, there is no real room for advancment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work on internal advancment more, stick with a business plan longer than 3 months

    I have been working at Polycom full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people make this company
    Technology

    Cons

    The continued push towards this direct touch sales model
    Cutting channel resources in favour for more direct sales people

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up, drop the arrogance and do away with this rubbish direct touch/selling model. Polycom is a channel led company and it is our channels who transact with customers.
    Start to employ more people who understand channels and what is important to them...we don't need anymore ex Cisco people.

    I worked at Polycom full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    NONE. I disliked every day I was there.

    Cons

    No one works together. No one tells anyone what they are doing. People come and go all the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your employees to work together.
