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

    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.

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

    Pros

    Being in sales one can obtain all the experience needed to be a professional sales person. You will learn the process and the sale model, pushed to your limits, and your integrity tested. You have the ability to sell equipment, services, integration, and software.

    Cons

    Very top heavy with bureaucracy. Everyone fearful of being downsized. No loyalty to employees (unless in upper management) sole focus on shareholder, declining industry with management struggling for new identity, work, work, work at expense of family time to meet demands. compensation plan changed 4 times in less than a year

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    trust, value, and appreciate your employees

    I have been working at Pitney Bowes full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Somewhat flexible work schedule
    For the most part friendly co-workers

    Cons

    Large workloads with minimal pay
    No communication from management
    Extremely top heavy at Corp office
    No insight on direction of business

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees what they deserve and you won't continue to lose your top talent. Better your communication with your employees as to decisions being made an the direction the company is moving. Focus more on how to grow the stagnant business into new ventures rather than just eliminating expenses to cut costs.

    Pros

    the health insurance I guess was a pro.. great coverage and time off

    Cons

    They used to value employees, we had christmas parties, a summer picnic, great people to work with, great managers. The almighty dollar sure played a big part in this... They have also outsourced so much work overseas in makes me SICK !!!!! Take care of your people HERE !!!! If you are looking for a career this is not the place to work... I worked there over 12 years and am tossed away like nothing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at your managers you have !!!!! Most of them are not people oriented. I was written up and on my write up it said that she would sit down with me weekly to go over my progress and the next time I saw her face was to be terminated... Really ?
