Polycom is a good company in a competive and fast changing industry. They are productive in adapting to industry needs and getting products out.
Project Manager (Former Employee) – Ashburn, VA – 15 May 2013
Polycom will continue to grow as they are well positioned in their industry. The industry as a whole is not doing so well right now but it will in the future when the economy turns around. A typical day of work for me entails managing price lists and working with IT to oversee our pricing system for any IT related issues or implementations taking place.
I'm looking for a new job because I am a work from home employee and my chances for growth opportunities are limited. My reviews have been excellent. I have received the highest rating (1), which only 5-10% of the company gets the past 2 years.
Credit Analyst (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – 4 April 2018
Overall I had a great experience working at Polycom Inc. I was brought on-board as a consultant and I was able to utilize my keen skills and make a contribution to the organization. The department I worked in was a relaxed atmosphere which made it a fun place to work.
I have spent nearly 3 years with Polycom. Due to the great and amazing boss who unfortunately left the business I can say that was the best company I have worked for. Very strong Working From Home culture. Very open people out of EMEA region. I was based in Slough. Good work and life balance. Not that many perks though.
Corporate Buyer (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – 1 March 2018
Coming on board, the company was just a startup with about 150 employees. Withing three years there were over 1000 and we continued to grow with purchases of other companies in the same field. This gave me the opportunity for additional education and advancement. Within two years, I went from a tester to a buyer and supported over 2500 employees.
Sr. World Wide Channel Partner Curriculum Manager (Former Employee) – Milpitas, CA – 2 February 2018
I worked off bay shore road in San Jose during me work period there. Very old "tired" buildings. Manager was very poor at leadership and was somewhat disorganized providing objectives and how these objectives were to be achieved.
Production and Quality Specialist (Former Employee) – Englewood, OH – 10 December 2017
If there was a poster company that embodied the saying, "too many chiefs at the fire", it was Polycom. I have never had meetings, about the next meeting, about what we want to do, and then maybe something gets done. All the meanwhile you are bombarded by deadlines, but stuck in meetings. Company allowed the business units to be run like Greek city states. You weren't sure if Cisco was our competitor or our own colleagues. The balance to all of that was a top shelf benefits package.
Sales Manager (Current Employee) – Andover, MA – 4 December 2017

Director Services Sales (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – 2 November 2017
There is great opportunity at Polycom. challenges come from lack of long term view of account assignments, training and agility to market trends. Unclear strategy to beat competitors like Cisco, Pexip and BlueJeans Network.

Cloud Managed Service Technician (Former Employee) – Corvallis, OR – 13 September 2017
Polycom is a good company at its core but they are by nature a company first people second company. I enjoyed my time working there tremendously but there are a lot of easy to fix problems that unfortunately the right people won't ever get the task of solving.
