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

    Pros

    Pretty much nothing. Free snacks maybe. Used to have really good people...

    Cons

    Used to have excellent engineers; replaced by junior developers who have no idea what they are doing.

    Management by fear and intimidation. Performance reviews based on feedback from other managers who have no idea about what you do and don't even try to seek input from the right people. Wonder how this people manage to stick around?

    Nothing in terms of career advancement and planning.

    Sweatshop mentality; management demands/expects 24/7 work with no rewards/recognition/compensation. Management makes technical decisions! These are people that used to be poor engineers!

    Whomever gives this company a high rating has not worked anywhere else and doesn't know any better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What can you tell them? They won't do anything to fix the problems they themselves have created!
