    I worked at Borderfree full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The company was acquired by Pitney Bowes. I left before that takeover. So, I am only commenting on before the acquisition. It was a great place to work

    Cons

    The building has a lot of construction. It is NY. So, what can you do. But, the construction bothered me.

    I have been working at Borderfree full-time

    Pros

    Borderfree in it's former glory days was a great company to work for under the leadership of the CEO at the time. Now it is a different story...

    Cons

    Gone are the days that made Borderfree the place and enjoyable culture it once was. There used to be drinks and Karaoke nights after every town hall meeting, and monthly birthday treat of the month, and other small but fun events. These are all gone now under PB management. Even our christmas holiday party was pushed to the new year..it's like it was an after thought for the Borderfree side of the business. They don't appreciate the talented employees that made Borderfree a success and as a result people are leaving at a rate never seen before here. It's really sad to see a great company going down this rabbit hole. Borderfree was doing well before this takeover. Now we are evaluated based on the poor performance as a whole and our annual raises took a big hit.

    I worked at Borderfree

    Pros

    There were so many pros during the Borderfree era but since PB has taken over they have all faded. There are really no pros to this company anymore than you collecting a paycheck and working short PB hours. No one is motivated to do much so kick the email chain around and everyone can clap once an announcement comes out.

    Cons

    - Attrition rate is over 50% and will continue to grow, PB has decided to destroy the Borderfree. culture that they paid a premium to buy - Best and brightest are leaving in waves leaving just the fat - Employee moral is at an all time low in the past 3 year - Merit increase are around 2 % for a above average performance review

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Borderfree full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Office, snacks - though that might go away soon, PTO, knowledgeable people in some areas.

    Cons

    No life/work balance. Some areas in the company are very badly organized - though situation is somewhat improving. After Pitney Bowes acquired Borderfree a lot of people are leaving. Pitney Bowes HR rep mislead me on my PTO pay during my exit interview and as result I lost significant amount of money - I wasn't allowed to take any time off before the exit.
