Just curious what devices any of you would recommend for a small office with 10+ employees.

This depends on what is your budget and what features you expect from the phones. Kerio Operator can auto-configure many Cisco, Linksys, Polycom, and Snom models. What it comes to manual configuration, you can use just about any SIP phone or softphone.

Let me share some of our experience:

Cisco - the older models work very reliably with Operator, the problem with newer models is that some of the functions are not publicly documented. It's increasingly more difficult to add support for new models.

Linksys - good price, fast boot - especially the B&W models. Linkys = Cisco for some time now, but it's still easy to add support for new models (the same config as the older Linksys phones)

Snom - we experienced a few problems with V7 firmwares in some models, but version 8 works reliably. Some of the models (e.g. 370) would work well as receptionist phones after we add support for Busy Line Field functionality (planned for Operator 1.2). All documentation is publicly available.

Polycom - higher price point, very good sound quality. The configuration structure is the same in all models, so it's easy to add support for new models.
