    Wish they would have kept PBMS

    Team Lead (Current Employee)

    ProsPBMS was very generous with there vacation and personal leave policy.. not may companies give you your hours at the beginning of every year and let your borrow against them which was very nice.

    ConsSince selling PBMS to Novitex a lot of former employees have left,, things certainly did not change for the better. Still no raises extreme micro managing,, with Novitex,, they took away 3 or 4 holidays Pitney Bowes was a far better company to work for

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

    A company that has given me many opportunities

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat people, if you are willing to work hard you will have a lot of opportunities, the company is making much better decisions than it did 5 years ago

    ConsLow pay for front line employees

    Advice to Senior ManagementLess politics, be more transparent to clients and employees, make sure the people in senior leadership positions are making good decisions for the company and not their personal benefit, Really look at the compensation structure for front line employees,

    Cold, "Old School" Environment

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Stamford, CT

    ProsCompany has been in business since 1920, many people have been with the company for 30+ years

    ConsLack of communication, employees that have been with the company for years are not helpful to new employees - there is an expectation that you should know everything.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Seem to be stuck

    Service Technician (Current Employee) New Haven, CT

    ProsGood benefits. Great products. Very good training facility. The company is working to bounce back from a decade of poor leadership.

    ConsVery poor over-site by managers and division directors. They are too busy being accountants. Very hard to advance to higher paid positions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementValue the employee, more than the position.

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Do not value their senior employees

    Account Support (Current Employee) Appleton, WI

    Prosthe health insurance I guess was a pro.. great coverage and time off

    ConsThey used to value employees, we had christmas parties, a summer picnic, great people to work with, great managers. The almighty dollar sure played a big part in this... They have also outsourced so much work overseas in makes me SICK !!!!! Take care of your people HERE !!!! If you are looking for a career this is not the place to work... I worked there over 12 years and am tossed away like nothing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook at your managers you have !!!!! Most of them are not people oriented. I was written up and on my write up it said that she would sit down with me weekly to go over my progress and the next time I saw her face was to be terminated... Really ?

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
