    Great Opportunity, Company is still stuck in the 'corporate' world of churn and burn.

    Inside Sales Specialist (Former Employee) Shelton, CT

    Pros401K, Benefits - its a classic 9-5 job

    ConsMajority of Management is 'recycled' from other departments. Hardly ever brought new, young, or energetic people into positions that could make a change. Too many 25+ year employees who are set in their ways. Competency of these individuals is inadequate for growth as they do not foster new ideas or promote change.

    Hours are set 9-5.

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

    OK place to work.

    Software Engineer (Former Employee) Boulder, CO

    ProsWork life balance was good. The company gives more time off than any company I have worked for. Management was pretty hands off most of the time.

    ConsLayoffs every year. The Boulder office has some of the most anti social people you will ever meet.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Dying Industry

    Internal Auditor (Former Employee) Stamford, CT

    ConsNothing overly negative to add.

    Company is eager to evolve and is open to new ideas

    Manager (Former Employee) Stamford, CT

    ProsLong standing and trusted brand, solid cash flow, ethical in business. Seek roles in business sectors that reflect strategic direction for the company and you'll do well.

    ConsStill very tied to paper mail services and solutions. Old guard is rotating out, which should help accelerate evolution

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep that sense of urgency on the evolution. Don't hesitate to drop programs that aren't relevant to new direction.

    Most of the executives were not skilled in building teams

    Account Manager (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsAbility to move up the ladder. Managers working well with large profile customers can promote quickly alongside the Client's growth.

    ConsExecutives had new initiatives every month and were always seeking to keep up with the competition's latest gimmicks to win customers. They were not original thinkers which has led to the downfall of the Services division.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEliminate stagnant leadership and hire / promote leaders that will build teams in a positive manner.

    Just another rung on the ladder

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsWork at own pace, no pressure.

    Treats employees well; no identity

    Product Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsAgile work environment, ethical company, little micromanagement

    Consconstantly changing visions and strategies, poor compensation

    Advice to Senior ManagementPick a corporate identity and vision and stay with it...your employees are getting whiplash

    Pitney Bowes - an 'ok' place to work on balance and in an environment where good jobs are hard to find

    Director Procurement (Former Employee) Shelton, CT

    Prossome wonderful people, but rare. lot's of potential, but it can feel like a slowly sinking ship as mail volumes and reltated service decline - maybe the new CEO can turn things around

    Conslots of mediocrity and and politics and senior management not help accountable (that may be changing)

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

     

    It has wonderful benefits with this company.

    Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) Neenah, WI

    ProsThe benefits are the best around.

    ConsYou job may be outsourced.
