    I worked at Pitney Bowes full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    New leadership is taking the company in the right direction. Nice new office space.

    Cons

    There are still too many of the old guard left who are not up to par with the new. Promotions and opportunities are limited as the company contracts to focus on the new business model.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop making promises to employees you have no intention of keeping. The real focus is the turnaround with the sale or breakup of the company not far behind. It's a great 2 year stint for someone who wants to be part of the change then move on.

    You are working in your own for the entire eight hours. Good benefit and car reimbursement.

    Business is stress out since the US economy started to slow down. Service, Sales and Management Departments are downsizing.

    I worked at Pitney Bowes full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very good company, good co-workers, great pay.

    Cons

    Financial outlook seems to be short term. Company should be trying to enter new markets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop products that are marketable rather than developing a product and hoping that a market develops.
    Bonuses should be directly tied to sales increases.

    A big, old, company

    I have been working at Pitney Bowes full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Total compensation is competitive. Good work-life balance, including strong support for flexible work arrangements up to and including working from home full-time. While things at a big corp can change quickly, currently, job stability is high. Haven't been any layoffs in several years, and I don't see any on the horizon. If you want somewhere that doesn't require you to grow, keep your head down, and get paid, this could be the place for you.

    Cons

    If you want to make a big contribution to technology, and work with the brightest, most energetic people, look elsewhere. As a company trying to make the transition to a tech firm, change is non-existent or glacial. PB is best at attracting and retaining mediocre talent. As another reviewer mentions, there are many disconnected silos, partially the result of many botched acquisitions over the years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be bold, speed up the pace of change. Build a recruiting organization capable of getting top talent, change HR and compensation policies to be able to keep it. Cull mediocrity.
