Polycom and Data Remote Troubleshooting - systems/networking

City: Halifax
Date: 27 Jul 2017
Category: Systems / Network

This successful company, started in 2007, is regularly voted as one of the best places to work in the industry. Its company culture is one that is "flat, open and creative." A flat organization is one where there is no (or very few) levels of management in between staff and executives. This approach is more common among startups, and can be tricky to maintain as a company grows larger, generally requiring groups to form.
