Pros

Pitney Bowes is a well known company with a long history. Brand recognition is helpful when looking for new business and you are trying to get your foot in the door..

Cons

Very disorganized, next to no training and over worked managers leads to frustration by the new reps. Reps are forced to slam their customers just to get a sale. They throw you in the field by the third day. Days before you get tools such as laptop, cell phone or passwords to access anything. You do get five days of formal training maybe one to two months after you are put in territory. You will ride with reps that dog the company all day long. It's hard to pump yourself up when you hear nothing but bad things about the place where you are working

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you invest more in your people then you will get better results. Create and implement an on-boarding plan that is world class. Develop a mentoring plan for your new people with employee's that have something good to say about the company.

    Pros

    Pitney Bowes is a fast track to a career in sales. The company will provide you with decent training but the exposure to different vertical markets will mold you into an effective sales professional in any career.

    Cons

    The biggest failure of Pitney Bowes has been the Board of Directors decision to keep Mr. Murray Martin on board for the last decade. He is personally responsible for the demise of a once amazing and trusted brand. The company still has potential but with his leadership it is being driven into the ground, its sad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't let your consolidations and layoffs eliminate your brightest and youngest talent.
