I worked at Pitney Bowes full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Great salary and benefits. Work-life balance was exceptional. Ethical in their business dealings. Company managed cash flow wisely. Coworkers were great. The company was doing the right things to remain afloat by eliminating expensive processes.

Cons

Slow to react to changing market conditions. Some of the leadership had been there awhile and managed the company like it was during its prime.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pitney Bowes is a market leader in a shrinking industry. The question is where is the industry headed. There will always be a place for mail, but not like it was.

    I worked at Pitney Bowes full-time

    Pros

    Benefits are very good and focused on the employees well being.

    Cons

    Senior execs are disconnected from their employees. No strategy, just cost cutting. They need a 3-5 year growth strategy that is not only focused on cost optimization. Engineering leadership needs to be improved with more SW development depth. Non-existent today. And lastly, leadership doesn't value good talent. Pushing the envelope is frown upon, mediocre is rewarded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a strategy.
