    I have been working at Polycom as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Unlike a lot of tech companies who make things that no one really needs, Polycom develops many products that are actually useful to many businesses in today's global, technology-driven work environment. The liberal work-from-home policy is also a big plus, and the company's video collaboration software make it easy to stay connected to co-workers and teams, even with people working from home and from different offices.

    Cons

    The policy of cycling in contractors to do permanent and ongoing work is counter-productive and simply a bad business practice. Contractors are hired with the promise of permanent work, yet once in place, even for those who by all accounts are smart, dedicated, and delivering high-quality work on time, there's no path to permanent employment and no process for approval of permanent employees from contract. Contractors get cut loose after exactly one year of contract employment, regardless of where they happen to be in the development cycle. Then the company back-fills the position with yet another contractor, who may or may not be as competent as the one being replaced. Team leads then spend valuable time training a new contract employee to work for 365 days and then get cut loose, repeating the cycle over and over.

    Not having to pay benefits for a group of employees may look good on a spreadsheet, but it's terrible for team cohesion and productivity, and it's probably not so great for Polycom's already suffering reputation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you find good people, hire them.
