    I have been working at Polycom full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good technology to work on, people are some of the best engineers I've worked for. Money is good.

    Cons

    Last 4 months of 2012, we literally worked every day (almost). I think I had 4 days total off during that time. Managers have no clue of how to motivate people to stay here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open in discussing status of projects and upcoming technologies with employees. Keep us in the loop!

    Pros

    I have met some truly excellent people at Polycom. The culture is supportive and team based and working with the latest open standards for UC communications is very exciting. Management is very fair and coworkers are often eager to help.

    Cons

    At times it feels like career advancement can be limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing a great job and taking care of your employees, they are your most valuable asset.
