    Pros

    The company used to be focused on the people. it was like a family

    Cons

    it changed around 2000. It became more cut throat and based on numbers versus results. The company cut itself for the next decade or so until it was no longer the same comapny

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    The GM was very helpful and I learned so much from him. They treat all employees equal, not matter the position. All great people to work with. The GM made working there so much fun. We had PB games every year that he made up himself.

    Cons

    The cons for me were working in a production type atmosphere. I prefer the office atmosphere, but here they are kind of all in the same.

    Pros

    New leadership is making changes, adding shareholder value
    Large company with many opportunities
    Agile work option

    Cons

    Still overcoming legacy culture of slow movement, silos and doing things the way they have always been done
    Large organization can be challenging to navigate
    Lack of visibility into other divisions - not a one company feel for customers, although work is underway to improve this

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to push for culture change and move to "one company" approach for customers.

    I have been working at Pitney Bowes full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I like working there, it is a very friendly company and the work is not that hard.
    The people that you work with are from all over the world.

    Cons

    Very fast pace work, but it can be done. The pay is not that good but they are talking about uping the pay for all in the next two weeks, and that would be a good thing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to workers more

    Pros

    Change is constant. It is difficult to obtain traction and expertise when the rules and guidelines are constantly changing.

    Cons

    Too much pressure to get everything done throughout the day. Over whelming emails that take time to address.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce scope of position or add additional personnel
