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

Pros

Great opportunity to gain some sales experience and sales training. You can parlay this job into other sales opportunities.

    I have been working at Pitney Bowes full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pitney Bowes is a well known company with a long history. Brand recognition is helpful when looking for new business and you are trying to get your foot in the door..

    Cons

    Very disorganized, next to no training and over worked managers leads to frustration by the new reps. Reps are forced to slam their customers just to get a sale. They throw you in the field by the third day. Days before you get tools such as laptop, cell phone or passwords to access anything. You do get five days of formal training maybe one to two months after you are put in territory. You will ride with reps that dog the company all day long. It's hard to pump yourself up when you hear nothing but bad things about the place where you are working

    Advice to Management

    If you invest more in your people then you will get better results. Create and implement an on-boarding plan that is world class. Develop a mentoring plan for your new people with employee's that have something good to say about the company.
