    Pros

    decent benefits and pay (middle of the range). the people you work with are generally fun and trustworthy.

    Cons

    So many---clueless executive staff, no accountability for their bad decisions, brutal work environment and culture (I've never seen so many people get fired so quickly), inept CEO who blames everyone else around him, nasty emails from leaders are the norm, terrible financial performance, no merit or bonuses, and if you see HR on your floor--there's another layoff, which happens every quarter. Engineering HR is terrible to deal with and very hierachal...unless you're a VP, they won't talk to you.

    Advice to Management

    clean house, start over or sell the company--it's been on a downward spiral for 18 months and getting worse. your workforce is very, very unhappy.

    Pros

    I have met some truly excellent people at Polycom. The culture is supportive and team based and working with the latest open standards for UC communications is very exciting. Management is very fair and coworkers are often eager to help.

    Cons

    At times it feels like career advancement can be limited.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing a great job and taking care of your employees, they are your most valuable asset.
