    Advice to Senior ManagementEssentially neopost are fortunate for the people they have whom are all there for the right reasons. Unfortunately Aust neopost has 2 key challenges. Exceptionally low base, highly disproportionate to a professional modern sales company and management needs to stop dangling a golden carrot of career progression that has no roadmap or strategy to support the empty promise

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Lots of talks, few actions.

    Account Manager (Former Employee) Montreal, QC (Canada)

    ProsCompany that values the people who works for it. Président always talks about how important people is. Industry with only two players that facilitate the sales.

    ConsManagers are not great leaders. Most are not at the right place. Few career opportunities. Global company that doesn't want their employees to go outside canada. Mailing industry declining but unable to shift from traditional hardware sale to software solutions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest more in people. Great sales reps can't see themself growing with that level of individuels.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Globla organization afraid to change

    International Project Manager (Current Employee) Paris (France)

    ProsSmall company with access at all levels to decision makers. Good people who care about their jobs. B2B industry player with few competitors and plenty of transformative opportunites.

    ConsVision and action are not consistent globally. The organization structure does not encourage change. Employees are increasingly disengaged, with little investment in ongoing development.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook to the future through employee development and global management practices. Invest in back-end business structures that are current, scalable, and localizable. Embrace change as the legacy you will leave behind when you retire in the next few years.

    short term place to learn sales

    Sales Executive (Current Employee)

    Prosif you can sell neopost products, with success anything you ever sell in future jobs wille easier.
    you will learn to cold call alot and ask lots of questions

    Conspay structure is getting worse every year used to be a job you could make greast money if you worked hard. now you will work hard and make ok money.
    senior executive is a joke. personalities rule the decision making process.

    Advice to Senior Managementleave your personalities out of decision making process. \come out of your office and walk a mile in our shoes. you wont think we are overpaid.

    Neopost is not half as good as its cranked up to be, but it is a good company to work for.

    Sales Executive (Former Employee) London, England (UK)

    Pros- Good Training,
    - If you have the right manager then Good Support,
    - If you have a central london patch then you can earn a lot of money,
    - Product and Service is much better then Arch Rival

    Cons- Disturbingly high staff turnover in my one year there most of the 24 salespeople in my office left,
    - Product and Services are chronically over priced,
    - Only sell franking machines whilst arch rival is selling everything else too from stationary to copiers,
    - Targets are unrealistic, in the monthly management meetings i only ever saw a handfull of people hit target (intrestingly they have a central london patch)

    Advice to Senior Management- Stop loosing your best sales executives to rivals by increasing the basic,
    - Sell more than just franking machines, as the industry will continue to decline,
    - Change target system,

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Confusion Reigns

    Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsInternational Company makes downturns in individual markets less likely to impact the overall company. Has considerable financial strength and a good reputation in the market, especially in Europe.

    ConsSerious lack of communication between business units. This often results in unit managers making decisions that benefit one unit but are detrimental to the rest of the company. Is old school with some senior employees unwilling to consider fresh approaches to the market.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider taking the best of Neopost (and now absorbed Hasler) and making a corporate culture that takes the lead away from Pitney Bowes rather than being satisfied with the crumbs from Pitney's table.
