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

    Pros

    Great Benefits, some corporate structure tries to make it worthwhile to work, awesome 401k, tuition reimbursement, great bonus structure if you can get to it.

    Cons

    Live in constant fear of not hitting bonus and not being able to pay bills. First month on the floor tracking for bonus, but if you don't hit a huge sales goal you make zilch for bonus. Managers have no concept of how to coach employees and only focus on doing useless reports to try to forecast where they might be in the next five minutes. Good luck getting help with a question as the supervisors in sales often have no clue.

    Advice to Management

    Stop doing reports every 2 hours on where are numbers will be and start trying to improve sales by coaching your employees. There are exercises called role plays and voice recording technology that analysts could monitor help sales people tweak there word tracks and pitches to increase sales. Also, don't make an permanent decision on an employee 2 weeks out of training, give them a full month to figure out what they are doing. Especially when you don't have them shadow a successful employee and learn hands on. Module training is poor, need hands on real scenario training on machines and automation equipment. Make the base pay more or make the bonus pay out at a lower number, so employees don't have to stress about a catastrophic month or give up half way through, which I see regularly.

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

    Pros

    some wonderful people, but rare. lot's of potential, but it can feel like a slowly sinking ship as mail volumes and reltated service decline - maybe the new CEO can turn things around

    Cons

    lots of mediocrity and and politics and senior management not help accountable (that may be changing)
