I have been working at Pitney Bowes full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

The people are dedicated to doing their best of whatever is asked of them. The technology used is near current and people are encouraged to speak up (mostly...). The work/life balance is stressed and the ability to telecommute is a bonus.

Cons

The company is currently in transition and is wandering aimlessly. There has been a near continuous reorganization for the last 3 years and it doesn't have signs of being complete anytime soon. Due to that the left hand doesn't seem to know what the right hand is doing and a lot of work/projects are repetitive. The offices outside of world headquarters seem to be run haphazardly with some at zero or less than zero morale due to local management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Lead. Don't waffle. Make definitive statements and execute on them. Trust your employees will execute your vision and don't micromanage situations (or force others to do that for you).

    I worked at Pitney Bowes full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Most of the people who work at PB are genuinely nice and care about their jobs. There was minimal micro management.

    Cons

    This is a massively changing industry and PB do not seem equipped to cope with the changes in time and reacted by laying off half the company by all accounts just so upper management could get their bonuses. There is also to many tiers of management - about half should have gone before the sales people

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Heads out the sand guys.

    Benefits other than compensation and health care are OK

    Cons

    Lot's of silent layoffs.
    Not able to grow revenue, so focus is on cost control or cutting.
    Growing bureaucracy.
    Upper management has lost connection with employees.
