    Many changes, not sue what will happen. The new CEO is good, but the company mentality needs change.

    Senior Business Analyst (Current Employee)
    Shelton, CT

    ProsGood work life balance, but with exceptions.

    ConsOld company, old products, old politics, resistance to change.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Pays well, but depressing climate

    Software Development Manager (Former Employee)
    Shelton, CT

    ProsPays well, decent benefits, pretty flexible work schedule, great co-workers

    ConsContinuous layoffs (they got rid of the fat a long time ago, so now every cut is into the muscle),
    very hard to get promoted unless you jump business units at a minimum,
    PB are the leaders of a dying industry,
    management jumps all over to the crisis of moment or big idea of the day - haven't figured out where to take the company next,
    don't count on bonuses - they are based on company performance measured against unrealistic goals & they grade on a curve so even if everyone in a group are A players, have to be 1's/2's, 3's and 4's/5's

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook at products on the shelf created by old AC&T, stop trying to make numbers through layoffs, soon there won't be anyone left.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    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

    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

    If you ignore the chaos around you, and focus on the job and appreciate the benefits, you are good.

    Inside Sales Specialist (Former Employee)
    Shelton, CT

    ProsBenefits. 401K. Spiffs. Beneplace employee discounts. Tuition reimbursement.

    ConsChaotic upper management. Slow reaction to market demands. Ineffective training and product knowledge for solutions beyond postage meters.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI hate it that you let me go. But one has to wonder why is inside sales being downsized after field sales has already been diminished. Who is going to sell all those solutions?

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

    Going, Going, Going.....GONE!!

    Project Engineer (Former Employee)
    Shelton, CT

    ProsPB was able to enjoy a nice long run of 90% USA marketshare of cash cow products in a cash cow industry... mailing machines. That meant good salaries for managers, sales, marketing, and some tech employees.

    ConsIts all over. PB tried to get into other areas of business when they saw the end coming for the mailing industry. But it was all too late. They have now laid off the majority of their Engineers and the stock has tumbled. No improvement in sight.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMaybe find a new company to milk for a while.

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

    It was a great company to work for until the last decade or so. Executive mismanagement created continuous layoffs.

    Support Staff (Former Employee)
    Shelton, CT

    ProsGood benefits and salaries. Some jobs offer work from home option. Nice perks, e.g., team building events, rewards and recognition,etc.

    ConsToo many layoffs due to poor management and out sourcing. layoffs not uniform--loss of good workers with seniority and/or over 50.

    Slow internship with minimal work but good enviornment

    Electrical Engineering Co-Op (Former Employee)
    Shelton, CT

    ProsFriendly environment, small teams that cared about each other, non cut throat and good work life balance as they will not be forcing you to work more than 40 hours a week unless it is absolutely necessary.

    ConsEngineering department is slowing down, less and less work for engineers to do, very few opportunities for young engineers with the lay offs also creating a nervous environment as who is going to be next.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFind a way to attract young engineers and figure out how to get work for the ones there, as currently it is slow and the engineers are a bit discouraged about what they are going to be doing.

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

    If HR paid attention to it's employee satisfaction ratings, rid all bad manager based on that, it'd be 100% better.

    Designer (Former Employee)
    Shelton, CT

    ProsBrilliant people and mutually supportive and collaborative.

    ConsIt is often a living example of the Peter Principle.

    Advice to Senior ManagementQuit the 'low hanging fruit' fixes and focus on the big problems.

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

    A great company, that is slowly making it's way to join the Titantic

    Advisory QA Software Engineer (Former Employee)
    Shelton, CT

    ProsPay was good, benefits not bad

    ConsAs the company has lost it's way management is non existent, it's every man for himself environment. Opportunity has become stagnant

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop being so selfish!

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