Pros – Pitney Bowes does have a virtual monopoly over the shrinking number of organizations that still send physical mail. That does allow for some relatively easy sales to whats left as there are really no alternatives.
Cons – In the digital age in addition to the green movement, Pitney Bowes as a mail services company is losing relevance and quite frankly on the verge of irrelevance. Their attempts at product diversity have been utter failures. It is an old company that has be completely unable to evolve with the times. The pay is dismal, management and leadership is beyond dismal. The best and brightest are not jumping on board this sinking ship with different company focuses coming every week there is no vision or direction at Pitney Bowes. Avoid at all costs.
Advice to Senior Management – Do not become a manager here, I feel their pain. They are forced to be puppets forced to tow the line of the C-level execs who have no sense of direction, creativity, or value for their managers who are forced to smile and institute a new set of ridiculous and contradictory objectives. I know it makes management lose a piece of themselves when instead of helping their team sell product they instead are constantly selling the team on whatever short lived strategic approach that is guaranteed to fail.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
Pros – Time-off and Vacation. Great opportunity to gain Customer Service skills. Its a good place to start but not to make a career out of.
Cons – Promotions are scarce. No recognition for low-level employees.
Pros – Good people to work with in the local environment
Cons – Connection between corporate and the field is substandard.
Leadership is below par. If you ask anyone in the field (from rep to DD), no one has a clear sense of corporate objectives. Makes it a very unhealthy working environment
Advice to Senior Management – Be transparent about the direction of the company. Major disconnect between corporate and the field. Corporate has a hidden agenda on the direction of the company. Moral is low with the field employees
