Sr. AV Design Engineer (Current Employee) –  Andover, MAAugust 19, 2016
I have worked for Polycom for 10+ years now and i have to say i have enjoyed every minute i have been there from starting off as a tech support technician to now designing full custom AV solutions for our customers that incorporate a large variety of polycom equipment. the management at polycom encourages you to think outside of the box to develop solutions that will meet the customers needs. The culture at polycom is focus on making sure each employee is able to balance work and personal time more effectively.
Pros
Compensation, Health Benefits
Cons
lack of training

Resident Technician III (Former Employee) –  Neenah, WIMay 3, 2016
With the position I worked, the resident technician supports customers on site with all their video conferencing needs. The bad part is not having your management on site, but the benefits to the customer were great for reaction time.

Great company to work for
Program Manager (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXMarch 21, 2016
Polycom has a very dynamic work environment. Engineers are working with the cutting edge technology. Midsize company with not too many layers of management. Friendly work environment. People first, process second and technology third. Benefit package is great.

Enjoyable work with fun co-workers
Quality Assurance Engineer (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXJanuary 4, 2016
Co-workers were always willing to help out and the fact many of them had been there for years or had been there previously and came back to work there provided a pleasant environment as people knew each other well. Testing, providing data reports to developers/managers, and brainstorming new ways to test were typical responsibilities.
Pros
Flexible scheduling, respect and hands-off approach from managers unless necessary, long-time employees make for good rapport amongst co-workers, few meetings
Cons
Not much documentation or up-to-date documentation for projects

Highly demanding work schedule, with strong coworker bonds
Installation Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXDecember 1, 2015
The team I was with was more like a small family than a work team, we always fought for each other and stood by each other when issues arose. The work schedule was highly demanding with often all employees putting in 90-100+ hours every two weeks. Sadly, room for advancement, and annual layoffs made the position seem very unstable.
Pros
Telecommuting offered, strong bonds between coworkers
Cons
no opportunities for advancement, frequent layoffs
