Pros

Flexible work schedule with ability to sometimes telecommute and work desired hours. Friendly work atmosphere (people get along and help each other whenever appropriate).

Cons

People are all expected to do the same amount/quality of work, but are paid significantly differently. Promotions are pretty much non-existent and the rating system is done on a curve so ratings/raises are not fairly given out. Managers are afraid to give a top rating to one employee as that would result in having to give a bad rating to another.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Employees should be rated fairly (not given an average rating in order based on a curve) and paid according to the work they are doing. People doing basically the same job should be paid similarly.

    Pros

    Generally good work-life balance, flexible working aranagments are encouraged by most managers. Overall, good people work here and you can make a difference.

    Cons

    The company is trying to transition itself from declining markets (e.g., first class mail) to a software and services firm. However its approach to downsizing, and lack luster results, has create low employee morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get real. Be honest about the growth prospects, your plans to make investments and the hurdles PB faces. Treat employees with integrity.
