    Pros

    Excellent talent, long-term customers, core technology, predictable cash flow

    Cons

    Haven't figured out what's "act 2" as the mailing business gradually contracts. Moving into ecommerce is smart because it's the future and it's growing. But Pitney still needs to find its unique defendable niche. As everyone moves into ecommerce, and it evolves so rapidly,it's hard to grab and control turf.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on strategy. Be transparent.

    I worked at Pitney Bowes full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Literally none! I decided to get out of this place in one week! I was deceived into accepting the offer. Wasted 2 months of my life!

    Cons

    1. Hiring Process: The day my interview was scheduled, I was waiting at the office for 6 hours and "the interview" lasted 15 minutes. All they asked me was "Why do you want to leave your old workplace?". That is it!

    2. Incorrect Information/False claims: Before joining, I was promised unlimited WFHs, flexible shift (I was pretty clear about the fact that I won't be available post 5 PM) and 32 annual leaves. But in reality, afterI joined I was told that my team does not get WFHs, I was forced to work in the late shift (11-7:30 and I reached home at 9 PM) and EMPLOYEES ARE NOT ALLOWED TO TAKE LEAVES FOR 6 MONTHS! How in the world is this "A great place to work" is beyond my comprehension.

    3. HR Staff is the worst: When I joined, I discovered that my reporting manager was not even aware of the false promises the recruiter had made to me. In one of the talks with the HR Manager, she told me she is trying to "resolve" my issues and told me:
     a. They cannot give me the early shift for 6 months- 1 year. Even then they will think about it.
     b. I cannot take WFH, I can take leaves if the need be. And the reason you reached home at 10 PM is not relevant for taking WFH and my personal problems are none of her concern!!
     c. I am not allowed to take leaves for 6 months, so basically, I will have to rot in office from 11-7:30 5 days a week for at least 6 months!

    Make your pathetic policies clear BEFORE someone joins!! Don't tell them they have options later! Because we do! And you are not the only workplace on this planet!

    Advice to Management

    Make your pathetic policies clear before the someone joins!! Don't tell them they have options later!
