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

    Pros

    Chances for Training and advancing knowledge base,
    Incredible Benefits!
    Location Perks are wonderful.
    You have all the tools and resources available to do your job comfortably and with the best technology available.

    Cons

    Culture of fear and exclusion.
    Very little leadership from management.
    Complicated procedures make it hard to get anything done or effect positive change.
    Work life balance is dismal.

    Advice to Management

    Cut out the micromanagement. Your employees are professionals that are willing to go the extra mile to get things done. Forcing authority without respect results in loss of production and complete atrophy of a team environment. Respect and value the players on your team and they will follow you any where.

    Look at your business practices. There's a reason why the nick name "Polycomplicated" is passed around so frequently.

    I have been working at Polycom full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are good people in Polycom that truly do care about the quality of their work. In addition, there are pockets of brilliant people.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the good, solid employees with potential to lead are groomed to be leaders within the company. With the new management team, it seems that Polycom is heading to 1) let business units that aren't profitable die on the vine (which is actually a good thing) 2) set up to be optimized and sold in the near future 3) upper management makes decisions on numbers rather analyzing who the best employees are. It's a very sad time for the company.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to employee evaluations when making decisions on who stays and who goes.
