    I worked at Polycom full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I worked at Westminster, CO location. I enjoyed the open outspoken culture. There is a great deal of technical knowledge and expertise accumulated by engineers. Many people have been with the company for more than 10 years. There is always healthy amount of skepticism that comes with expertise, which may be perceived as arrogance at first, but that perception goes away after you get to know the team better.

    Cons

    The company in general seemed to struggle to overcome the shifting market in 2013. The executive management did not provide fathomable product strategy, and could not prevent a number of selfish decisions made at the highest levels of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be honest with all employees, don't hide your strategy if you have one. Dear CEO, don't send surveys, come over and talk to engineers instead.
