    A big, old, company

    I have been working at Pitney Bowes full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Total compensation is competitive. Good work-life balance, including strong support for flexible work arrangements up to and including working from home full-time. While things at a big corp can change quickly, currently, job stability is high. Haven't been any layoffs in several years, and I don't see any on the horizon. If you want somewhere that doesn't require you to grow, keep your head down, and get paid, this could be the place for you.

    Cons

    If you want to make a big contribution to technology, and work with the brightest, most energetic people, look elsewhere. As a company trying to make the transition to a tech firm, change is non-existent or glacial. PB is best at attracting and retaining mediocre talent. As another reviewer mentions, there are many disconnected silos, partially the result of many botched acquisitions over the years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be bold, speed up the pace of change. Build a recruiting organization capable of getting top talent, change HR and compensation policies to be able to keep it. Cull mediocrity.

    Pros

    You get great benefits with this company. The senior sales staff was always willing to help you to succeed. I enjoyed the sales meetings they always had motivational stories.

    Cons

    The managers play favorites and are also lazy when it comes to helping you with questions. The training program that was in place then is terrible. I hope that they have changed some things. Trainings should be by a person not a series of boring recorded messages.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to your sales staff and help them to make more money because it only benefits you as well.

    I worked at Pitney Bowes

    Pros

    Set territories with over 600 clients and I worked from home only traveling 2-3 days a week.

    Cons

    Had 3 different territories in 2 years. Most of the larger clients were given to major account reps leaving only smaller clients that were downsizing to smaller equipment. That resulted in much lower SQC.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make all territories equa
