Fun place - No long term prospects
Intern (Former Employee) –  Santa Cruz, CAFebruary 25, 2016
Loved the culture, friendly atmosphere but there is lack of younger generation in the company. No high risks are taken. Time for the management to bring a change!

Continuously improving workplace, Moderate benefits, and Great place to work
Sr. QA Lab Technician, then to Technical Associate (Former Employee) –  Santa Cruz, CAFebruary 18, 2016
Plantronics is the premier headset manufacturer for the world. They have a GREAT quality philosophy that translates into excellent long lasting products. Thus, it is their best reputation. Recently work has accelerated to a much faster pace, signaling a serious change in philosophy, however. The focus on software may be the cause of this, plus an incursion of personnel from other companies joining the management team. For a 50 + year old company to survive into the IoT, and software metrics world, It is probably a necessary transition. The co-workers are more Family than associates, as they all do truly care deeply for each other, The general feel of co-operation & collegiality is fairly intrinsic in the culture. I have managed to solve puzzles, highly technical ones, for most of my 10 year career here, along with guaranteeing the product quality level. Creating & ensuring we have made the same level of quality in an innovative new product, as has been made in the past, creates a level of deep satisfaction for most of the employees. I have been well educated by Plantronics, but also they have benefitted from my skills.

Escalation Specialist Lead (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CAAugust 5, 2015
Okay place to work. Management doesn't know what they are doing half the time (in my experience.) Most enjoyable part of the job was building a relationship with coworkers. If you work at the main corporate office you have more perks.
Pros
Stress free enviornment.
Cons
No job security.

CORPORATE Employment Close to Home
Inside Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Santa Cruz, CASeptember 12, 2012
Being self-starter means getting busy, which I did. The job was primarily on the phone communication with customers. I enjoyed connecting with the customers and new product launches. The hardest part was dealing with managers who were inexperienced and ineffective, they got in the way of work getting done more than aided in the production of the dept.

The team of co-workers were great, very supportive of each other and respectful.

I learned that HR is not on the side of the employee but on the side of the managers.
Pros
profit sharing, benefits and vacation pay
Cons
constantly shifting processes
