Polycom CEO takes charge - takeover is now complete

New CEO’s message is clear he does not care about the stock price. Only beating the competition.

How does he plan to do that with products which are several generations behind.

Sales fiddling the numbers, engineering covering up one delayed or failed product after another.

Dishonestly is rife at all levels.

Time to clean house.

The Polycom acquisition messed it up - was never the right fit, culturally or technologically.

It was time to clean house 3 years ago maybe more. That place is the most disorganized and politically backstabbing cesspool I’ve ever had the displeasure of being associated with. Glad I kept my mouth shut long enough to get the inevitable layoff package I saw coming for a year.

The POLY team ran off their core Bussines sales team. Lost relationships that took years to build! Deemphasized EnterPrise Headsets. Board behind closed doors counting their money.
