    I worked at Pitney Bowes full-time

    Pros

    Many years ago, great employee benefits and room for advancement. Back then, they worked hard to take good care of their employees in order to keep them. Wonderful training and career opportunities.

    Cons

    For me, I left over twenty years ago in order to have a family. I've spoken to some old friends who say it's not as empoyee oriented as it used to be. I feel that is the way many companies have gone. I am hopeful to work for a company that recognizes and nutures the value of their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Nurture and respect your company, your bottom line and your employees.
