    Great while it lasted but I was caught up in a massive reorganization in 2010. Loved working there.

    Good benefits. Plenty of resources available to get your job done.

    Even after the reorganization, management is still top heavy.

    Lighten up, there's still way too many chiefs.

    I worked at Pitney Bowes

    Pros

    As an intern you work directly on projects and do real engineering from the beginning. You are assigned a mentor and often perform cross-functionally with other departments to get things done. Very good experience overall. Very relaxed environment.

    Cons

    Very top heavy company. There is a lot of bureaucracy in the way of getting things done. There is a lot of "nickle and dimeing" when designing new products. Nontechnical management sometimes seemed detached from reality wit their requests and requirements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management does a good job of staying on top of things. Management is very flexible about scheduling issues and conflicts.

    I worked at Pitney Bowes

    Pros

    As a co-op it was alot of fun and very laid back. The people were great. There were helpful and you learned alot. It was very hands on. People were willing to teach you and help you along. You get alot of real life projects.
    Lunch was amazing. The facilities at Pitney Bowes was wonderful, there was a gym and 2 cafeterias and many vending machines. aside from that the electrical engineering dept had cookies on wednesdays and pizza on fridays.

    Cons

    There were no intern programs, the morale at the time with the engineers was low.
    Sometimes there wasnt much work to do.
    I wish there was a mentor program or some sort of program for interns.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communications with engineers
