    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

    I have been working at Pitney Bowes full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good work environment, Executives for the most part are approachable, people smile and nod or say hello in the hallways. Generally friendly atmosphere.

    Cons

    Year End Process includes reorganizing and downsizing large numbers of employees with out regard to how their skills and experience could be beneficial to other areas within the company that may be hiring.
    Internal candidates are not prioritized, coached, trained or developed to maximize skills and experience.
    Interns are usually related to an executive.
    Very top heavy company,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat exiting people with dignity and respect.
    The supplemental unemployment benefit is petty and cheap coming from such a large company. If there wasn't so much downsizing, you could actually pay severance.

    Pros

    The GM was very helpful and I learned so much from him. They treat all employees equal, not matter the position. All great people to work with. The GM made working there so much fun. We had PB games every year that he made up himself.

    Cons

    The cons for me were working in a production type atmosphere. I prefer the office atmosphere, but here they are kind of all in the same.
