    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

    Pros

    Company has been in business since 1920, many people have been with the company for 30+ years

    Cons

    Lack of communication, employees that have been with the company for years are not helpful to new employees - there is an expectation that you should know everything.

    Former Employee - Sales Position in Jacksonville, FL

    I worked at Pitney Bowes full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Well known brand and name. Industry leading technology. Well established corporate partnerships throughout the US.

    Cons

    Industry leading technology is becoming more and more irrelevant. Training is poor and follow up is worse, almost non-existent. Some company management does not follow the high ethical standards they proclaim. The culture is not based on mutual trust or respect. Employees are treated as if they are always suspected of being less than honest or ethical. Up side compensation has steadily declined. Senior management has attempted to "change the culture" by doing the same things over and over again and then are surprised when they get the same results.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to change the direction and future of Pitney Bowes you have have to do more than give "lip service" to change. You must change the culture and thinking of the company, starting at the top.

    Pros

    Wonderful co workers and pleasant work areas. Wonderful benefits for regular employees.

    Cons

    Training was very lacking, it made the job seem impossible. I worked so hard to learn the job and tried to excel. Every night my head just hurt.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In training have a lot and lot of practice. Let the trainees work on teams and do loads more practices.

    I worked at Pitney Bowes

    Pros

    Name recognition, been around for a long time, market leader, huge territories if people are willing to work.

    Cons

    There's always a push to sell transactional business (postage meters) and complex solutions. They have reorganized their US Mailing operation multiple times over the last 2-3 years and nothing seems to stick.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lower quotas. You keep building comp plans that are so unrecognizable that only the people that have loaded territories (if you really look at this and compare vs. those that don't have loaded territories, you will see this) can succeed. When 30% of your sales force or hitting target and you are the market leader, it's pretty obvious what is going on.

    Pros

    Good training, people are top notch, mostly hard working. Management is there to help. Good resources to tap into .

    Cons

    Compensation is low for similar related positions in other companies, technology is weak and not very competitive. Many technological products don't work. Core products have not been updated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    need to get in line with recent technology and upgrade offerings to customers. More customers will leave unless they have products that can help their businesses grow.
