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

    Pros

    Transportation supervisor was very fair to his workers. The work itself was not strenuous. I really enjoyed my position with this company.

    Cons

    No communication from corporate to employees. Unfair terminations. Wages below expectations. Corporate gave absolutely no incentives to employees.. Lunch room was 3 vending machines. You would think coffee would be available.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    COMMUUNICATE!!! Pay employees what they are worth. Practice fair and lawful workplace. Give at least one warning before termination and have the courage to speak one on one with employees. Stop hiding in the background.

    Pros

    The people in the organization are for the most part extremely hard working and dedicated. The benefit package is in line with what you would expect to receive at a company this size.

    Cons

    Management was always focused on short term current quarter objectives without having a vision for where the company would be in the longer term. The work/life balance is non existent.

    I have been working at Pitney Bowes full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great work life balance. Software's Senior Management really believes in removing impediments from its engineering groups. Solid benefits. Pay is good not great. Company values hiring within so they are many opportunities for upper or sideways movement.

    Cons

    It is large company so change takes longer than in a smaller company so one has to be a little bit patience.
    Occasionally there is a bit too much red tape, although that has been dimishing over time.
    The engineering groups are distributed all across the word. So on projects, team members are not necessarily co-located. It is less than ideal - but it does provide benefits such as global perspective that compensates for some of it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please continue with making the company much more customer focused. I've seen very positive changes since the new CEO has come onboard and it will do us and our customers well.

    I have been working at Pitney Bowes as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    The atmosphere is laid back and cool. It's like no other warehouse I've ever been in. We can listen to music and and pitch in lunches.

    Cons

    The only thing I would change is the pay. It is a little low but it is not hard work.

    Pros

    great work life balance and rewards/recognition program. Also PB has a wonderful training platform.

    Cons

    Unrealistic quotas with some of the senior level sales positions and base salaries need to be increased.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I guess increased transparency from senior management in regards to company trajectory.

    I have been working at Pitney Bowes full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pitney Bowes is a really good company to work for. They have excellent health benefits and a good 401k plan. I was an outside sales rep and these positions work from home. You have a lot of freedom on the job. Unfortunately on 4/07/14 they laid off their entire outside sales force. I got caught in the lay off. We were all told via a conference call.

    Cons

    They do not train their employees. One of the worst training programs. I sold equipment to customers that I have never seen used. They teach you the product from a brochure.
