    I worked at Pitney Bowes (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Teams work well together. Benefits are average. Customer focused. Location in Danbury is ideal for most commutes. Cafeteria in the building.

    Cons

    Slowly losing customers as mailing operations close. No salary increases. Management is focused on cutting staff instead of growing products.

    Advice to Management

    Stop laying off people. Instead focus on shifting resources to other products and building newer products.

    I have been working at Pitney Bowes full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good salary, benefits, and vacation plan.

    Cons

    Layoffs continue off and on. Moving more jobs overseas to India. Finances are a mess. There is no coordination between Operations, Lines of Business, and Finance on spending. Communication from executive levels downward and between functional areas is terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so reactionary. Show some real leadership. Don't just manage to the bottom line. Don't just talk "at" your people, give them a chance to talk, then listen.

    Pros

    Overall I am thankful to have had the position right out of college.
    - Good management training (including Richardson classes)
    - Good sales processes
    - Good team when I worked there
    - Opportunity for promotions

    Cons

    - No new, innovative products to sell
    - Poor leadership
    - Mailing industry is declining
    - Major account reps seemed to get all leads and good accounts
    - Hard to sell on superior service when too many service team members were cut.
    - No leads

    Advice to Management

    Focus on new innovative products or partnerships. Competition has caught up in terms of products feature. Also, work to create a more collaborative and fun culture.
