    I worked at Pitney Bowes full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good HR and admin policies, they keep trying to make it as a great place to work

    Cons

    Tech Leads become managers and can`t manage the team.Manager keeps pressure to fill agree option is employment survey. India Head says keep quite or leave the company. Great place to work is a manipulated advertisement. One of guy was suffering from dengue in shipping team, manager kept pressure to come office, finally guy died. Overall its not worth to work in this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Manager should be well qualified

    Pros

    Good stepping stone for other job opportunities

    Cons

    Received 2 measley "raises" while working at the company for 5 years. Started at $12.00 ended with 12.45.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Properly compensate your employees for the amount of hard work they do for the company. Maybe there won't be such a high turnover rate.

    Former Employee - Service Technician in Windsor, CT

    I worked at Pitney Bowes full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good training program. Provide adequate training on existing equipment as well as newer models that will be available in the future. All air fares and very good accommodation provided for.

    Cons

    Managers rely on input of your performance from untrustworthy people that have only their own interests in mind. They don't care about whose careers they damage on the way. Constant strife between shifts. I worked all three shifts and everyone is blaming problems on the shift before them. At the weekly meetings when asked to speak their minds, no one has anything to say. They all fear loosing their jobs because of their manager doesn't want anyone rocking the boat. He is only interested in his monthly bonus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At the very least, replace that particular manager for a start. Maybe people will trust the new one and open up. Then and only then will the problem solving begin and have all shifts working as a team, not fearing reprisal for speaking out.

    Former Employee - Major Account Manager in Atlanta, GA

    I worked at Pitney Bowes full-time

    Pros

    I would say the best thing is their remaining employees on the front line. Tenured folks that have done a lot over the course of time for the organization and have maintained the company existence to even be any what relevant today.

    Cons

    They have no direction, mid to upper management are empty suits that are doing what they have to do for their own existence in the short term. Very much who you know company. For anyone trying to go into this organization as a new hire, I highly recommend running as fast as you can the other way. Unless you are one of the "Relationship" long termed employees, they don't put you in a position for success and will crumble you up and spit you out without any dignity. The core function of getting close to the customer isn't in any part of culture. The organization has everyone scared and is a miserable environment that doesn't allow for true creative ideas to grow again.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn some of the basics of today's environment and figure out innovation is the key to the organization. The fact that you haven't developed anything innovative out of your own resources should be a sign. If you took a minute to understand and empower thought, I believe that you will find that a lot of very intelligent people could offer some wonderful ideas to different topics. You haven't taken a minute to understand this and/or really understand much pass today.

    I worked at Pitney Bowes full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    pros are very few: somewhat on your own when driving a route; fellow employees can recognize you for your abilities and award you

    Cons

    cons are plenty: management is poorly operated, the company is too worried that the employee will work over 8 hours in a shift, employees that do above average work are not recognized while those who perform substandard are welcomed, etc., etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    focus on the positive aspects of an employee, and less on the so called negative things she/he has done (doing so would be very different from most companies !! ), do not keep on staff those who have major accidents, who threaten managers and fellow employees, those who continually screw up due to lack of understanding basic language, keep your personal life out of the workplace
