    I worked at Pitney Bowes part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Many good people, working hard to achieve success, willing to welcome anyone who can help and add a level of expertise not otherwise present.

    Cons

    The company is in a dying market and not doing well with a series of layoffs going back a few years. They have not been able to re-invent themselves yet.

    Advice to Management

    Trust and listen to your people, cut failed programs and either buy a growing company that needs an infusion of capital to succeed or look long and hard at the marketplace, with assistance from talented consultants, to determine what new products/product areas to pursue.

    I worked at Pitney Bowes full-time (More than 3 years)

    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 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.
