    Ups and downs

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Austin, TX

    ProsGreat group of people to work with, some of the most people friendly management I've ever had. Would gladly work with some of them again...but others not so much.

    ConsCompany direction is flailing, some of the long term benefits slowly taken away from employees. Some senior management is also new to the game and don't have what it takes.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSeek more advice from the people with business knowledge. Don't make it all about the dollar figure. I understand staying in business but need work on retention so the knowledge stays in the business also.

    I am a software quality engineer for a agile team that builds shipping and mailing sofware for meters and postal service

    Software Quality Engineer (Current Employee) Austin, TX

    ProsImidiate managment is honest and sincere regarding their attempt to produce a good product.

    ConsNot enough process to get the job done. No visinary leadership. Declining market share.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere are good things about Neopost, The people, the trustworthy friends I have make while working here but the managment dosent have a clue how to get from A to B. That combined with the dificult market place for all things postal, Im not very confident about the future of this company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    It was like a misguided roller coaster -- some ups, some downs, but no apparent direction.

    Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee) Austin, TX

    ProsPretty flexible work schedule allows for a decent work life balance.

    ConsManagement treats everyone like they are replaceable cogs. Very few of the decisions are done with the employees in mind. Nothing is done to retain good developers. Incompetence is rampant and is never addressed. Retaliatory management practices make it very risky to challenge any decisions handed down by management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementActually listen to your employees. Treat them like people. Offer rewards to your good developers. The rewards do not need to be monetary in nature. As a matter of fact, most developers would rather be given a bit of time periodically to work on things that particularly interest them. Look around you and honestly identify those people that are incompetent and get rid of them. The trend seemed to be that you would get rid of good employees and retain the incompetent ones.

    Incompetent senior management

    (Former Employee) Austin, TX

    ProsMost of the people (non-managers) who work there are great. It is an agile shop with small team focus. The fully stocked breakroom is also nice, but I doubt it'll be around for much longer.

    ConsThe new CEO cares very little about what anyone other than his upper management team thinks. What was once an open-door and tight-knit community is now closed off and corporate feeling. When once there were social events and happy hours, the new regime doesn't support any of those types of fun employee activities. If you like working for a place where voicing a legitimate business concern might get you fired, Neopost is the place for you.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop wasting money on consultants and fix the real problem - make some changes in the senior staff. You'd be amazed at the immediate improvement in morale if you did. There are some incredibly talented people at that company that are hating their lives at that place right now.

    Bad work environment, would not recommend

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Austin, TX

    ProsOK benefits, 401k matching is excellent (50% of first 8%), nice offices

    ConsManagement by dictatorship, no input allowed by employees and those who speak up put their career at risk. A number of verbal employees have been let go over the last year because of their viewpoints, and many other good employees have left. It is a tense place to work, where nepotism and favoritism is rampant, salaries are low, promotions are in name only (no merit pay to go along with additional responsibility). Lots of secrets and hidden agendas. The president is very cheap.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFoster an open, honest environment, stop retribution against employees and encourage feedback, ask for input on management decisions that affect your staff, stop being so cheap about everything.

    Volatile, Hostile, and an Empty Vessel

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat advancement opportunities, office environment filled with highly-skilled employees, exposure to International businesses, good benefits

    ConsAn empty vessel, work/life balance always shifted more towards work, senior management was incapable of leading or making tough decisions, the culture was cut-throat, bullying was frequent and endemic to all groups

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
