    not worth working for if you value yourself.....

    Driver (Former Employee) Corona, CA

    Prospros are very few: somewhat on your own when driving a route; fellow employees can recognize you for your abilities and award you

    Conscons are plenty: management is poorly operated, the company is too worried that the employee will work over 8 hours in a shift, employees that do above average work are not recognized while those who perform substandard are welcomed, etc., etc.

    Advice to Senior Managementfocus on the positive aspects of an employee, and less on the so called negative things she/he has done (doing so would be very different from most companies !! ), do not keep on staff those who have major accidents, who threaten managers and fellow employees, those who continually screw up due to lack of understanding basic language, keep your personal life out of the workplace

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

    Worst place to work.

    COPY OPERATOR (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsI met a lot of great people here.

    ConsNo raises. Everybody that started as a new employee made more money then you.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more fair with the raises.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    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

    Uninspiring

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsSomewhat flexible work schedule
    For the most part friendly co-workers

    ConsLarge workloads with minimal pay
    No communication from management
    Extremely top heavy at Corp office
    No insight on direction of business

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay your employees what they deserve and you won't continue to lose your top talent. Better your communication with your employees as to decisions being made an the direction the company is moving. Focus more on how to grow the stagnant business into new ventures rather than just eliminating expenses to cut costs.

    Run!!

    Technician (Current Employee)

    ProsUmmm, 12 hour schedules and maybe once a year as a bonus, you get a free lunch.

    ConsNo raises, zero promotions, Dirty, unorganized, terrible technology that is completely outdated and not even relevant in today's world. Web stuff is so terrible. No organization, no path, they have no clue where they are going. No commissions on sales leads. No bonuses. No added incentives. Let me sum this up with the fact that you will be provided a Blackberry. Yes, a Blackberry. RUN!!!!

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive up. You had a long run, but you are chasing your tail. You have no clue what to do to make money with mail in the information age.

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

    Unfair workplace

    Truck Driver (Former Employee) Ashland, VA

    ProsTransportation supervisor was very fair to his workers. The work itself was not strenuous. I really enjoyed my position with this company.

    ConsNo communication from corporate to employees. Unfair terminations. Wages below expectations. Corporate gave absolutely no incentives to employees.. Lunch room was 3 vending machines. You would think coffee would be available.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCOMMUUNICATE!!! Pay employees what they are worth. Practice fair and lawful workplace. Give at least one warning before termination and have the courage to speak one on one with employees. Stop hiding in the background.

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

    Worst Company Ever

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood vacation and Holiday hours.

    ConsThis company's CEO's would rather displace their own American workers with Offshore workers so they can continue to go on their vacations. The management staff only care about themselves!!!! They tell you they will pay you so many weeks after they give their job to offshore agents and then deduct vacation you took from it. As if I new I was going to loose my job!

    Advice to Senior ManagementMaybe you should think more about your employees then your next vacation.

    Lack of innovation is killing business, employee morale, and future

    Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsGenerous vacation time and benefits.

    ConsSenior leaders try to make gains/headway by cutting expenses rather than investing in innovation. This company should not have the word "software" in its name, since by nature "software" implies creativity, innovation, change, and risk. This company is none of the above.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop relying on spreadsheets to learn what to do with software and start talking to your customers, analyze your competitors, and hear from your employees who are in-the-trenches. Spreadsheet jockeys do your company no good.

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

    Whats wrong with Pitney Bowes

    Maintenance (Current Employee) Milwaukee, WI

    ProsThere is no pros to this company

    ConsMy girlfriend had cancer, so I had to take off of work to help her. I kept getting written up by the company for doing this. Now my brother had a heart attack and had to have open heart surgery, so what did the company do for this. They are giving me a 2 week layoff.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart treating people like assets not like slaves

    Stepping stone to break your ankle

    Sales (Former Employee)

    Prosoffice culture, ability to work from home

    Conslack of ability to move up, lack of management acknowledging your accomplishments or more-so taking the credit for your accomplishments, managers going on power trips and thinking they are more important than they are

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe processes of daily jobs is so incredibly flawed that it needs to be completely recreated from scratch- including managers of certain teams

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