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

    Pros

    People are generally friendly, enthusiastic, and talented. The offices are modern.

    Cons

    It was impossible to get H.R. to make exceptions when my education qualified me for a higher-level job. I chose to leave rather than continue to be under-employed and under-acknowledged. I would have liked t stay, but rules is rules. I was also disappointed that the job holders meetings rejected people's suggestions almost universally.

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

    Pros

    New leadership is making changes, adding shareholder value
    Large company with many opportunities
    Agile work option

    Cons

    Still overcoming legacy culture of slow movement, silos and doing things the way they have always been done
    Large organization can be challenging to navigate
    Lack of visibility into other divisions - not a one company feel for customers, although work is underway to improve this

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to push for culture change and move to "one company" approach for customers.

    Pros

    Everyone who worked here really cared about the company and its customers. Very professional environment.

    Cons

    Old-school company in a dying industry (postage/mail) struggling to catch up with faster-moving, younger companies who have passed them by -- especially in the online space.

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

    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 (more than an year)

    Pros

    Company support remote work, new leadership with a focus on Client Culture, Many of the products the software side sells are best in class, there are many good people in the company willing to help.

    Cons

    Much of the old management still exists and focuses only on a sale (at any cost), they don't truly care about clients. Company still makes bad deals that are a lose-lose for short term gain. New sales structure (while it may make sense), is not vetted out and the sales management have no interest in making it work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have many great people who are brilliant individual contributors who have no business being in management (or leadership) positions. Your sales leadership (at a mid level) still is not living the new values set by the CEO.
