I have been working at Pitney Bowes full-time (more than an year)

Pros

they have good benefits. all of their jobs are inside. it is very easy to work their. they will hire anybody that comes to their door.

Cons

the company does not care about you at all. the way that they do things are all backwards. what would seem like the right thing to do, to them is not. the management is all about them selves. they do not care about the people below them.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I would like to see them take a little bit more time to take care of their people. also to make Shure that you are picking the right people for the job. the last thing, is that you need to have a better set up for work/ life balance.

    I worked at Pitney Bowes full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Mostly dedicated employees. Diversity of product lines and technologies is good specially if you are into old technologies (IBM mainframe and Cobol are still alive and well). MapInfo location and management are probably the best in the company. It's a multinational corporation, so potential for mobility is there.

    Cons

    Company leans strongly towards outsourcing as much of the software development as possible to their Noida (India) offices. Too many legacy products with overlapping functionality are to maintain. Software development senior management of at least one product line (CCM) does not trust its people and tends to scapegoat and point the blame at everyone but themselves. There is a total lack of recognition of good effort. Cronyism is rampant. There is a total lack of transparency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to trust your people. Learn to recognize and reward good work and effort. Learn to recognize your own failures instead of blaming others. Hire and retain your best people and fire the under performers but do it in consultation with others not behind closed doors.
