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

    Pros

    Regardless of the demise of the industry, the atmosphere was optimistic

    Cons

    In the course of one day, I over-heard the man in the next office tell clients, he lost his wife, was getting married, gave his daughter away at her wedding, had a very contentious divorce and had a new baby. I felt that the integrity of the company was compromised by people who had to lie to make a living there.

    Advice to Management

    none

    Great management , opportunities for growth and work environment. The organization has a clear vision and mission statement. It live by a great creed of "client team win and innovation." ......

    I have been working at Pitney Bowes full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The best thing is work life balance. It varies by area but in the corporate area, it is quite good. Most people can work remote and above average amount of time. The people are talented, the leadership is honest and direct. I am exposed to plenty of confidential information and have only seen people act with integrity.

    Cons

    Pay for the non bonus eligible is not competitive enough. That is balanced for some with the work life flexibility but if you don't need that then you could probably get paid better elsewhere. Professional development is talked about a lot but there really isn't a lot of opportunity in most areas to develop. The company is struggling to reform the business and time is running out. So while leadership is optimistic, there just.hasn't been enough to celebrate

    Advice to Management

    Do more to identify your talented professionals as well as para-professionals and make sure they are paid competitively and feel valued. There is a lot of effort to develop the executives. It seems if they do their job well (nothing spectacular) they are praised and rewarded but everyone else is pretty much ignored. How about given budgets for spot awards to Directors and above that manage staff.
