nice work eviroment, but not recomended
poduction operator (Current Employee), englewoodMay 31, 2014
Pros: good healthcare, family first, local good management.
Cons: senior management at corperate level subpar.
From the time polycom took over the dayton location, you had to know that employment was short lived. We started with 30 employees, and now we have 5. The company likes to outsorce as much as they can. The people that I work with are a great bunch, it is fun to go to work.

Great opportunity and learning experience
Analyst Relations Associate (Former Employee), Santa Clara, CaliforniaFebruary 27, 2014
Pros: great learning experience. great culture.
Cons: wasn't my passion. not good job security.
Polycom was my first job out of College. It was a great learning experience for me as I started as an intern and then got hired on as a contract employee.

I was an Analyst Relations Associate and my daily responsibilities included the following:

Facilitated relationships between Polycom executives and third-party industry analyst firms
• Hosted daily – more... briefing and inquiry calls with analysts from Gartner, Forrester, IDC, etc.
• Prepared high-level briefing documents, and post meeting write-ups for executives.
• Established a detailed Social Media program to improve collaboration with analysts.
• Organized company-wide “Value Olympics” event to promote core company values.
• Assisted in the creation of a promotional video that is now used by HR for recruitment – less

Good place to work just don't plan on staying long
Sales Engineering Role (Former Employee), San Jose, CAJanuary 22, 2014
Pros: good pay
Cons: total lack of leadership, no product innovation, layoffs
Good compensation(pay) but they did away with earning and carrying over vacation time now its called FLEX time. Translated, don't take off.

If you do too well you put a target on your back for their annual cost cutting(layoffs). For the most part its a good place to work but Top Leaders have killed the moral, innovation and stock price.

Want to have no free time? Work at Polycom!
Engineer (Former Employee), Austin, TXOctober 6, 2013
Cons: long hours and frequent layoffs
They want you to work ridiculous hours and then you're not rewarded in any way ... not even a thank you sometimes. It is expected. Office politics is a way of life and if someone doesn't like you, you are gone. Layoffs are a way of life. I think it's an easy way to get rid of people they don't want around anymore. Go some place else!!!

Very nice facilities, fair compensation, but very demanding: it's a revolving door for employees
Senior Leadership (Current Employee), San Jose, CASeptember 26, 2013
Pros: nice gym and cafe in building
Cons: very little recognition for successes, and always looking for scapegoats on failures. it's a tough environment.
Beautiful facilities (gorgeous lobby, briefing centers, cafe, gym, etc.) make it appealing on the surface. But once you're on board, you are going to work your life away here. Extremely demanding environment with very little work/life balance. Go workers are great, but management is difficult to read; often says one thing and does another. Layoffs seem – more... to happen quarterly (as a way to cut costs), so nobody can be confident that their job will still be there tomorrow. And it is like a revolving door. Folks leaving the company all the time (sometimes willingly, but other times due to layoffs). This introduces a lot of stress in the workplace. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with a passionate group of professionals (although that group changes often due to the revolving door). – less

BEWARE - Layoffs are "normal"
Video Technician (Former Employee), Corvallis, ORSeptember 25, 2013
Pros: free sodas and snacks
Cons: layoffs and lies!
I learned the hard way that Polycom manages business by laying off employees every 3-6 months...and ALWAYS just before bonus checks come out! They are very nice to your face, but stab you in the back.

Integration/Fault Isolation Test Engineer (Former Employee), Austin, TXAugust 10, 2013
Pros: friendly staff/workmates, onsite cafeteria.
Cons: contractors are seen as expendable.
I liked working there, but was on as a "contract to hire". Due to the way their HR works, the full-time recs are closed after 1 month if the position isn't filled. Even tho I was technically there, the rec went away and my "contract to hire" became just a contract.
