    I worked at Pitney Bowes (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people and good family to work relationship. Market leader which allows for name recognition. Good compensation.

    Cons

    Stale products. Many of the products have only been modified in the past 15 years. C Level leadership is making a difference, but this company went from a family feeling company to a company in which you feel like an employee number.....and your job is never safe regardless of performance.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your people...truly listen!!

    The senior leadership team sets clear direction and strategy both internally and externally. Employees are treated fairly and with respect.

    This is a company undergoing a significant transformation. If you're uncomfortable with the ambiguity that accompanies transformational change this may not be the right company for you.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course...you're making the necessary moves to transform the company. Keeping employees engaged will build the momentum needed for a successful transformation.

    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

    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.
