Lots of changes in upper management as strategy shifts

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Polycom full-time

ProsGood people to work with, video culture and telecommuting very strong as one would expect. The communication from the top is fairly frequent, but does lack continuity from month to month as the company moves from hardware to software focus.

The technology is slick and used internally as a proof point as well as to test and refine use cases.

ConsShifting market forces are causing some pains as the company makes its way through changing priorities. Some communication is a bit premature as strategy is formed and in early stages. Lots of personnel changes in upper ranks exacerbates this as leadership changes focus and direction.

Advice to Senior ManagementStabilize on software strategy and allow enough time for it to take root.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
