    Great People, Interesting Work, Decent Management Overall

    Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee) Shelton, CT

    ProsStarted as a co-op and gradually climbed the ladder to a senior level software position. Worked in R&D, but also worked on some infrastructure projects when necessary. Was exposed top notch experts in many fields, as well as multi-disciplinary teams where everyone was respectful and learned from one another. Had access to tools we needed when we could justify it.

    ConsSenior management was too risk adverse and failed to pursue many recommendations from R&D, in retrospect they wouldn't be on their current downward slide if they had realized mail won't last forever and diversification was necessary to maintain growth. The "strategic transformation" of several years ago gutted much of the senior level, talent which decided to take package rather than go down with the ship.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake some risks and it looks like you'll bounce back.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Pitney Bowes

    Account Manager (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsGreat management in terms of not micro-managing.

    ConsOther than the mailing machines, some of the solution items weren't the greatest. I remember the Major Account Executive on my team talking with our manager about installation problems. It was two large Wall Street clients. The clients were not happy campers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't have another downsizing. Make sure R&D is doing their job.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
