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

Pros

New management team gets it under the leadership of the new CEO who is the real deal. Love his enthusiasm and genuine demeanor. Future looks bright but will take some time and patience to get there.

Cons

Employees still carry some baggage from the abuse taken from prior management team.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep it up! The culture transformation is astounding. New CEO rocks!

    Pros

    Used to have a great history and story. Then they did not adapt to the fast changing market

    surrounded by stupid management, with big Egos so a recipe for disaster. constant turn over of leadership.

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

    Pros

    Really good people, work hard but even remote users can stay connected using the technology. Some outstanding technology and really cool things coming down road.
    New CEO = refreshing change.

    Cons

    Different engineering roles are very definitely silo-ed and the company has trouble delivering a cohesive solution made of different parts from different teams

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We have decent product managers, but not real SOLUTION management. Need to change that and lead with a cohesive vision that's actually achievable.
    Need to speed up development and testing cycles, even if it means dropping support for older products.
