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

    Pros

    I was with PB Software and the latest technology is really Enterprise and World-class, flexible work environment as long as you deliver. Benefits are in line with most companies.

    Cons

    Company is going through a massive transformation for the good, however execution is a bit spotty. Brand (mail) is hard to over come and despite hiring a CMO to re-brand one year later nothing done. more smoke than fire. Nobody knows PB for anything other than mail, up hill battle. Software group leadership is heavily weighted to former Infor people, not impressed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spin software out in to separate company and stop bringing in Infor retreads

    Pros

    I like working there, it is a very friendly company and the work is not that hard.
    The people that you work with are from all over the world.

    Cons

    Very fast pace work, but it can be done. The pay is not that good but they are talking about uping the pay for all in the next two weeks, and that would be a good thing.

    Pros

    Dynamic and growth oriented. Lots of baggage from the old days that they are dealing with which is very positive though for some, painful. Strong executives leadership with Marc Lautenbach

    Cons

    Lots of responsibility with little authority. No courage in most BU and functional leadership. PB needed a new culture, disappointed that they chose to adopt IBM's.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really look at your senior-level BU leadership, they may not be as they seem.

    I worked at Pitney Bowes full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great company to obtain skills and build your resume. Excellent benefits and slightly above average pay. I would recommend Pitney Bowes as a stepping stone to add skills and competencies to your personal skill base, but I would not consider this company as a long term employment solution any longer. The Customer Care division's future is questionable based on outsourcing initiatives and continued restructures to reduce headcount to improve revenue goal attainment and to increase stock value.

    Cons

    Very change driven environment with a largely new executive level leadership. Direction and future for the US mailing division of this organization is a concern. Work/life balance for management has become almost non-existent. Myself and a number of my peers in management were investing 70-80 hours per week due to workload.

    Pros

    Change is constant. It is difficult to obtain traction and expertise when the rules and guidelines are constantly changing.

    Cons

    Too much pressure to get everything done throughout the day. Over whelming emails that take time to address.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce scope of position or add additional personnel

    Better than a few years ago, but strategy is lacking and plagued by politics.

    I worked at Pitney Bowes full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are solid, although 401k's are not matched very highly. Those who do the majority of the work are dedicated and generally a pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    Advancement is virtually impossible as they instead heap additional work on a declining workforce. Favoritism is huge and those who are not based at world headquarters are quickly forgotten. Middle management is set up to fail with too much work for too few people, and the talented depart first. They also make promises to those who they want to keep (raises, promotions), but then fail to follow through. Upper management has a clear plan for reducing redundant teams (following the prior team's buy up of numerous smaller companies), but this has also had an effect of forcing square projects into round holes. The projects that need to happen in order to keep revenue coming and reduce expenses operationally are therefore delayed and subject to massive cost overruns.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The attempts to "listen" to ideas from all levels of the company were clearly ignored. Upper management has instead continued to be influenced by a few "yes men" who are only interested in advancing their own careers instead of making decisions to better the company.

    Pros

    Good experience into sales, good management support

    Cons

    Constantly changing programs, compensation, products, requirements to the point where meeting quota is next to impossible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensate your employees and make goal attainable so you don't have extremely high employee turnover.
