    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Polycom as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    A higher probability of working remotely.

    Cons

    No sense of work life balance. Many employees worked from home and were answering email at ALL times of day. It seemed to be an unwritten rule.

    Advice to Management

    I heard stories of contracted staff employed for longer than 5 years and not brought on as permanent. A member of management alluded to executive staff "preferring" contactor to permanent worker. Recent experience showed me the company was contracting for a year at a time. After the yer, one could not be employed with company for 12 month period. I worked with some promising contractors. The company should be doing more to keep qualified staff.
