I worked at Pitney Bowes

Pros

I struggle to come up with a reason to work there now
The pay and benefits are good; but, for how long?

Cons

Frequent layoffs
Expensive place to live
Sliding stock price
No clear vision on growth
Management says one thing but does another - Ex: We are done with layoffs, then there are layoffs
Unwilling to spend money to develop products internally

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop doing broad cuts to reduce head count to match projected income.
Understand the relation between development manpower and continued income.
Instead of cutting heads, figure out how to reduce margin and drive growth.

  2.  

    Succeeding in sales if difficult because the product (postage related) is dying, but the people are nice.

    I have been working at Pitney Bowes

    Pros

    Great benefits, Ability to make your own day (as long as you're in by 9 and out by 5), Nice people.

    Cons

    Very hard to make quota because of dying market. Average age of the company is above 50 I would say. Upper management seems set in their ways and doesn't want to change. Hardly any young people. Low salary and almost impossible to hit the planned commission. Morale is really low and I don't know how they will get it back up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some youth in their! Get some products that people want! Make goals more realistic and reachable. Pay better. Stop laying off everyone!
