    Pros

    Pitney Bowes is a really good company to work for. They have excellent health benefits and a good 401k plan. I was an outside sales rep and these positions work from home. You have a lot of freedom on the job. Unfortunately on 4/07/14 they laid off their entire outside sales force. I got caught in the lay off. We were all told via a conference call.

    Cons

    They do not train their employees. One of the worst training programs. I sold equipment to customers that I have never seen used. They teach you the product from a brochure.

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

    Pros

    Very knowledgeable, hardworking people made working there very interesting and enjoyable. Some managers were willing to share their knowledge and also had great people skills that were very motivating.

    Cons

    Once the company was not doing well, things changed dramatically and the hard-core, non-feeling, bottom-line management who did not care about quality of life (other than their own) seemed to be the ones that got decision-making positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should be more flexible, invest more in growing the current employees and invest more in technology and products that are not linked to the USPS.

    Pros

    Fantastic training and working environments. The people are great to learn from and there is a wealth of sales experience from which to draw...learn what you can, and move on.

    Cons

    The constant pressure for one cal closing leaves little room for developing quality relationships. The prospects feel the pressure and that generally end the discussions quickly if there is not an immediate perceived need by the prospect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    lighten up on the whip fellas...
