    I have been working at Polycom full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Strong technology--Polycom's products are the best in the conferencing industry
    Smart, experienced people that are generally fun to work with
    "Drinks after work" culture--not excessive, but fun on Fridays
    Still a small-company feel to the campus

    Cons

    Polycom is slowly sinking financially. The stock is 1/3 of what it was 18 months ago.
    US jobs are moving to the China & India offices
    Mid-level management seems to understand that changes need to be made, but upper-level keeps pushing for more, faster, cheaper & quality be damned

    Advice to Management

    The Westminster campus represents hundreds of man-years of experience that Polycom really needs to innovate its way out of the hole it's in. You can't cost-cut your way to success here guys! Cisco will eat your lunch.
