    I worked at Pitney Bowes full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Started as a co-op and gradually climbed the ladder to a senior level software position. Worked in R&D, but also worked on some infrastructure projects when necessary. Was exposed top notch experts in many fields, as well as multi-disciplinary teams where everyone was respectful and learned from one another. Had access to tools we needed when we could justify it.

    Cons

    Senior management was too risk adverse and failed to pursue many recommendations from R&D, in retrospect they wouldn't be on their current downward slide if they had realized mail won't last forever and diversification was necessary to maintain growth. The "strategic transformation" of several years ago gutted much of the senior level, talent which decided to take package rather than go down with the ship.

    Advice to Management

    Take some risks and it looks like you'll bounce back.

    I worked at Pitney Bowes full-time

    Pros

    Benefits are very good and focused on the employees well being.

    Cons

    Senior execs are disconnected from their employees. No strategy, just cost cutting. They need a 3-5 year growth strategy that is not only focused on cost optimization. Engineering leadership needs to be improved with more SW development depth. Non-existent today. And lastly, leadership doesn't value good talent. Pushing the envelope is frown upon, mediocre is rewarded.

    Advice to Management

    Get a strategy.
