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 Management

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.

    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 Management

    Get your employees to work together.

    Pros

    We make solutions that actually make the world a better, more human, place. Our solutions are being used to help educate kids in far off places, treat the sick where they live, bring remote workers closer into their companies. I wouldn't have taken this job if I knew I had to travel.

    Cons

    Incompetent middle management. Abysmal onboarding and HR policies. Bigotry against travel. Inability to get from vision to execution. Mercurial CEO who few trust and no one admires.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the smart, passionate lower tier people; fire the managers and VPs who are crushing their spirits. Treat people like people, not iPhone apps.
