Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Santa Clara, CA

I have been working at Polycom full-time

Pros

Some of their efforts are put forth to improve lives in third world countries! Third world doctors can be advised by US Specialists.

Cons

Hiring manager is not respected by the engineering staff. During the interview, the hiring manager asked the exact the same question many times.

Advice to Management

Put this position within the engineering organization with an engineering manager, rather than the manufacturing department.

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

    Pros

    Decent salary and benefits; it is a large enough (and welll known enough) company to carry some weight when working with vendors.

    Cons

    Horrible management. This was the company at which I learned that the coporate culture "trickled down" from the top.

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

    Pros

    benefits are good
    product mix is good.. pricey but good

    Cons

    Too much politics.
    Way to top heavy in the last couple of years. Engineers have to wait years to get a promotion but directors and VPs can get couple in 6 months period.
    Ratio of front line employees to Directors and above has gone absurd. Certainly not 9 employees per manager concept.
    There are no carrer paths. If they exists, good luck finding it and even better luck getting ahead. Carrer advancement is just a thing on paper. Management shows no interest unless you are friends with someone.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to people. Care about the small guys, they do a lot of legwork to enable huge paychecks and bonuses. When employees don't make the bonus plan, don't work around the bonus pool to get discretionary bonus to make up for your lost one. Learn to look through BS that people under you put up as they don't want to tell real story to you for the fear of loosing their job.
