Pros

As a co-op it was alot of fun and very laid back. The people were great. There were helpful and you learned alot. It was very hands on. People were willing to teach you and help you along. You get alot of real life projects.
Lunch was amazing. The facilities at Pitney Bowes was wonderful, there was a gym and 2 cafeterias and many vending machines. aside from that the electrical engineering dept had cookies on wednesdays and pizza on fridays.

Cons

There were no intern programs, the morale at the time with the engineers was low.
Sometimes there wasnt much work to do.
I wish there was a mentor program or some sort of program for interns.

Advice to Management

    Pros

    The opprotunity to gain valuable sales experience in the real world in order to source a more financially beneficial job in the future. Pitney has a very thurough training plan for its employees. They seem to be highly motivated to ensure that their reps are as informed as possible on both their product mix and postal knowledge. The quotas are rather easy to attain as long as you spend your time in the field in front of your customer base. Territories are rather spread out but they do pay milage and a monthly vehicle allowance.

    Cons

    Low base, complicated commission structure.

    Advice to Management

    Look to the future and build to it do not rely on the past success of the company

    Pros

    People in your sphere tend to be OK, Health benefits were good. Education is supported.

    Cons

    In 35+ years of working for PB I saw a lot of mismanagement at local and corporate levels. They tend to support the old line way of doing things regardless, this was very apparent along with an arrogant management approach to the workers. PB excels at holding the carrot in front of your face and inconsistency in performance reviews. Who you know is more important than ability and a party mentality will take you far. Corporate management promises and decisions concerning field operations are broken or ill thought out and require still more changes later on. Corporate management doesn't like to own any decisions and tend to be vague on just about any topic.

    Advice to Management

    This company is about more that just making great numbers and profits. Lets get some people in management with character.
