I worked at Pitney Bowes as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Friendly environment, small teams that cared about each other, non cut throat and good work life balance as they will not be forcing you to work more than 40 hours a week unless it is absolutely necessary.

Cons

Engineering department is slowing down, less and less work for engineers to do, very few opportunities for young engineers with the lay offs also creating a nervous environment as who is going to be next.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Find a way to attract young engineers and figure out how to get work for the ones there, as currently it is slow and the engineers are a bit discouraged about what they are going to be doing.

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

    Pros

    Benefits. Sales support. The support staff cares (for now) and is the only heart beat left. Without them the directors in place don't stand a chance, opening the door for competition to waltz in. Maybe that's the plan???

    Cons

    It's simple math really...Inferior management has been put in place due to the "good ole boys/girls" club which equals/results in a decline in product/service. In Layman's terms - A competent leader can get efficient service from poor troops, while on the contrary an incapable leader can demoralize the best of troops.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revamp. Look at your current roster and realize you've cut all your starters. The proof is in the numbers - they don't lie. What was once a great company is now sub par at best. Truly a shame...

    I have been working at Pitney Bowes full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great opportunity to hone management and leadership skill if motivated.

    Cons

    Poor leadership at regional and local levels. Customers fleeing as a result. Late in the game to change and rebrand, which is unfortunate for such a great and proud organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to customers, frontline employees, be more agile in marketplace.
