    Pros

    I did extremely well at Pitney Bowes. The liked my manager and district manager and was praised for a reaching my goals.

    Cons

    The company was downsizing and our territory increased 3 times what is was. I found myself driving 2 hours to 1 client and 2 hour home. I would rather conduct more business in less drive time.

    Advice to Management

    I believe being acknowledge for a job well done, makes everyone work harder

    Pros

    The company provides part-time employees PTO benefits, and the ability to participate in the 401k plan. The company encourages volunteer opportunities at local schools. Management is very supportive of wellness program. The employees are very friendly, and helpful to new employees. It is a true "family" work environment. This was one of the best work experience I have had,

    Cons

    The company had some financial issues in 2013, and had to downsize several employees. However, the company provided very generous separation packages to those being let go.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and preserve the great culture!

    Pros

    They have decent benefits for health and 401k plan. They also provide a decent amount of paid time off when first starting out.

    Cons

    Poor raises and in ability to really move anywhere in the company unless you want to travel a lot or move.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize those who do most of the work for you and help them out instead of giving hand outs to those that hate the company and do nothing for it.

    Pros

    Pays well, most people who work there are great at their jobs and friendly, get all the tools you need to do your job.

    Cons

    Currently searching for a new direction for the company, a lot of random layoffs in past several years (but not for new hires) just removing older high paid people [yeah not good for them (or me) but if you're looking to go there you'll be good.

    Pros

    New CEO is finally steering the company in a sustainable direction. Generally, their compensation and benefits are at or above the market. They're really focusing on the culture.

    Cons

    Is still a little stodgy. Most of their business is the old school mailing business. Will take time for a real transformation.

    Advice to Management

    Keep shaking things up. There's a lot more work to do, but I'm confident you're on the right track.

    Pros

    Management was kind and guided you along until you were ready to fully work on your own. Good pay for intern.

    Cons

    Since the company is fairly large you are pretty much stuck doing the same work for the same department everyday. Not much moving around from department to department learning what they do.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be accepting and patient with interns however allow for more flexibility in the type of work that they do.

    I dont feel there was anything bad, till i had to leave it because of personal reasons

    Advice to Management

    If management wants to retain employees they should just try and see every story from both the sides, not just one

    Pros

    Good work life balance. You can take lots of work from homes. 6 hours work duration per day, the attendance is not counted.

    Cons

    Hard to find good work here. Management in India wants to give out most of the work to US as more work means more issues, which is a hindrance to the managers growth. Heavy favoritism culture, good work is seldom appreciated, while average or bad work with good liaisoning with the manager will be highly appreciated. It is also a company where HR is given more importance than engineering, they are most arrogant and ill mannered.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and smell the coffee. The attitude of management to ignore the team and improve relations with seniors is ruining the company. Team is the entity which gets the work done, more transparency is needed in decision making. All the best.
