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.

Excellent company!
Sr. Manager (Current Employee), Austin, TXJune 27, 2015
Have worked at Polycom for a very long time and LOVE it. The company has given me opportunities to grow.

There are opportunities to move up, however, it is not easy. Turn-over is so low jobs don't open up too often.

Work-life balance is amazing and being able to work from home is a huge bonus.

Great co-workers, a supportive environment, fast-paced, interesting projects.
Software Engineer (Former Employee), Austin, TXJune 23, 2015
Pros: Well-stocked break room, catered company lunch meeting every week, great co-workers
Cons: slowing down was hard (for me)
Each day started with short meetings and collaboration, then I retired to my office, turned up the mp3 player and dove into the code. =)
My co-workers were both personable and professional; easy to work with while being highly productive.
Management was very supportive, and encouraged suggestions and feedback.
The hardest part of the job was finding time to NOT work, because all of us were so excited and invested in the project.
The most enjoyable part of the job was writing code to implement new, exciting ideas.

Fun exciting technology
Sales (Current Employee), californiaMay 28, 2015
Pros: subsidized lunches, home office for variable comp employees
Cons: benefits are expensive and not comprehensive compared to other Bay Area companies.
Great coworkers.
Easy to get job done.
Everyone uses the technology that Polycom sells.
Sales lives and dies by weekly forecast and SFDC.
Mid level sales management changes bi annually
Indirect sales model - all sales through partners.
Partner assignments / comp plan changed 5 times in 2 years.
Success depends on who your manager is. If they don't support you, your career will be very short.
Do not see significant promotion opportunities.

Autocratic senior managers
Field Service Manager (Former Employee), Working from homeApril 13, 2015
Pros: Great remuneration package
Cons: Unfriendly environment
Freedom to work from home offset by the autocratic senior management team. A very closed loop old-boys network which is difficult to become part of. Team members are fearful of speaking out against or disagreeing with the senior management team.
