I worked at Polycom full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Some good people if you're lucky enough to work with them. New building/amenities, pay is average for silicon valley, good health insurance.

Cons

Everything else. Culture of fear that starts with the CEO, inept C-level, VP's & directors. No long term strategy or plan. Too many people that don't care.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

No advice for management because it wouldn't do any good, advice to the board - fire the CEO.

Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Polycom full-time

    Pros

    There's free snacks in the breakroom

    Cons

    -Terrible work/life balance
    -Terrible culture, culture it's all about playing the blame game rather than fixing the problem. Management always asks "who did it" rather than "what happened and how can we solve it"
    -People work hard in fear of losing their jobs, burning out fast
    -I've had to work weekends...sometimes at 6:00AM
    -Forced PTO
    -Incredibly disorganized, no processes in place, no clear direction, silo-ed efforts
    -Not really a reputable company that says "WOW" on your resume.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix your company culture, people are motivated by fear, which never really works out in the long run...
    Have a clearer direction and facilitate more teamwork
