Pros

Stamps.com has a tradition of hiring extremely bright and talented people. Most people must most definitely come out of Stamps.com having learned a lot. No challenge is too big. If there is no way to accomplish something - then invent a way.

Cons

I think being a public company has changed the culture and goals of the company such that, while decisions might be good for the quarterly conference calls, much of the drive and innovation that built the company earlier on has been lost.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I don't really have any advice for senior management. I know it is easy to criticize, but there are reasons for all the decisions. Sr management is smart. Just value all good employees. Not just those that stand out and do what they are told.

    Mildly challenging professionally; relatively secure fiscally; good total benefits package but average compensation.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, HR works hard to make life better for employees, compensation is well above average for this type of job. Lower level managers are good people and work hard for their team.

    Cons

    Lower level managers in Customer Support are overworked and underpaid. Getting a day off at work requires planning months in advance, and you can still be denied. Salary reviews should not include a requirement to attend company functions. Respect from upper management is somewhat lacking towards the rest of the customer support team. This is not a company where one can feel safe or comfortable enough to want to stay. There is very little room for job satisfaction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find ways to empower your lower level employees. The carrot and the stick are not the only ways to govern.
