Thanks for the comments, leadership is actively engaged in listening tours across the globe and taking deliberate actions in areas where we excel, and fixing areas where we don't.

    Pros

    good compensation plan, very cool technology to sell and use. There are good people to work with at the ground level.

    Cons

    Many key executives have left the company, CEO fired for expense mishaps... ooops. Leadership is struggling to keep morale up. company is a hardware solution sell, that is trying to evolve in to a software company that needs to address the cloud in our industry. Polycom's strategy sounds great at a high level, but it is hitting many bumps on the road to execution. CloudAXIS (announced a year ago publicly) is one great example of that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Providing genuine inspiration to employees, leading by example and providing better training and mentorship will help drive success. Sadly there is not enough of that coming from management at the top. We will have to see what the new CEO and new management team will bring to the table when the recruiters find them...
