I worked at Pitney Bowes full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Looks awesome on your resume, great place to learn how to be a true outside sales hunter. Thats all you will do these days, since account base has gone to the birds. I had a great team till they all got laided off. Training was awesome in Peach Tree till they went to online classes which is too hard with all the knowledge need to be developed.

Cons

You will work all day!! Prospect all day and be stuck on OZ (CRM)all night doing busy work. Very hard to do when half of your territory is controlled by inside sales and people are getting smart and using the internet for postage, and mail houses for projects. This company is slow to adapt, and everytime a new "product solution" comes out to push, we are already behind the 8 ball. Its a house on fire, slowly losing market share over night!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Its time to get rid of the old foggies, the old boy's club in Stamford, and hirer some young blood with visions for new C and VPs. Copy the product and raise the price isnt cutting it anymore!

Reward "Tenure" with better base and attractive comp since you raise the quota and lower the comp every January!

The over head still killing the company!!

    Pros

    There is not a single pro I can think of

    Cons

    As a new employee I am completely dumbfounded by the lack of accountability on any level. PB is spiraling out of control and there is no plan to stop it. The stock has dropped 11 dollars in the 8 months I have been here and all stays the status quo...Outsourcing jobs to India and cutting the people doing the work are not going to change the fact that there is no plan for growth. Embarassing!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of top level and start a new. Bring IT back in house and have department leads accountable to goals.
