Enjoyable work with fun co-workers
Quality Assurance Engineer (Former Employee), Austin, TXJanuary 4, 2016
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
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.

Highly demanding work schedule, with strong coworker bonds
Installation Coordinator (Former Employee), Austin, TXDecember 1, 2015
Pros: Telecommuting offered, strong bonds between coworkers
Cons: no opportunities for advancement, frequent layoffs
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.

Lots of Potential
Technical Project Manager (Former Employee), Denver, COSeptember 28, 2015
Pros: Good people, decent pay and benefits
Cons: High level direction (upper management) is terrible, siloed teams
Managed services was a great place to work while it lasted. Changes in CEO and upper management changed direction and set managed services up for failure. Some of the product teams were great to work with others not so much. In general there are a lot of talented passionate people delivering innovative products. Unfortunately there's not much good in the way of high level strategy. Multiple teams working on the similar products without any collaboration or thought on how they will go to market.

Do not work there if you're a contractor
Admin (Current Employee), TexasSeptember 17, 2015
Tough place to work for if you are a contractor. Not a lot of room to move up. Great work environment. For a communication company they lack communication.

Polycom-Nice place to work
Order Management Rep II (Former Employee), Santa Clara, CAJuly 23, 2015
Pros: Nice place, people were very helpful.
Cons: Too far for me to travel.
Polycom was a nice place to work. Having moved to Gilroy put the work place 30 miles away. It was a difficult drive.

My typical work day was working with the customer and different departments to ensure the Maintenance for the customer. Most of this job I had learned previously. I only needed to learn the company internal process. The process changed depending on the marketing be sent out to customers. We needed to learn the new programs and offer them to the customer. Management and co-workers, worked together, to promote the new marketing programs. The hardest part of the job was learning all the programs and the math that it included.
Learning the process was fun, it brought me and the co-workers closer to together. We sat in a conference room and exchanged ideas as to what we thought the math that should be applied to the new program.
