Former Employee - Software Development Manager in Shelton, CT
Former Employee - Software Development Manager in Shelton, CT

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

Pros

Pays well, decent benefits, pretty flexible work schedule, great co-workers

Cons

Continuous layoffs (they got rid of the fat a long time ago, so now every cut is into the muscle),
very hard to get promoted unless you jump business units at a minimum,
PB are the leaders of a dying industry,
management jumps all over to the crisis of moment or big idea of the day - haven't figured out where to take the company next,
don't count on bonuses - they are based on company performance measured against unrealistic goals & they grade on a curve so even if everyone in a group are A players, have to be 1's/2's, 3's and 4's/5's

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look at products on the shelf created by old AC&T, stop trying to make numbers through layoffs, soon there won't be anyone left.

    Many changes, not sue what will happen. The new CEO is good, but the company mentality needs change.
