    Great company to work for. The company is reinventing itself as a shipping solutions software provider.

    Continue pushing forward on the software shipping solutions. It is critical for the future of PB.

    I worked at Pitney Bowes full-time

    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.

    Flexible and fun, team oriented.

    Bureaucracy, slow, and painful to get teams on the same page sometimes.

    Pros

    Great company! Very competitive benefits. Fast paced, keeping the job interesting. Adoption of new technologies and skills empowers personal growth. The company is bringing in bright and energetic talent that support Marc L.'s re-branding of the company. The new hires are motivated, work great in teams and are well equipped to operate in a matrix environment.

    Cons

    Still too many of the "old guard" remain within the organization that refuse to change. They live in the past ignoring the fact that the industry and the customer needs have changed endangering the long-term future of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Need to aggressively weed out the "old guard" especially in mid management and lower levels as this is where strategies are stopped. Replace the "old guard" with new talent that understands new technologies and skill sets that are necessary to succeed long-term.

    I worked at Pitney Bowes full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people were very nice and helpful to each other. Definitely a team atmosphere. Most my team worked from home so there was good work:life balance but sometimes it was too isolating.

    Cons

    Career Mobility only got lip service. They have removed all the middle layers in the company so there are only Associates and Directors. There is no where to move or grow. If you are content to do the same job year after year, this is the place for you. If you want to grow and learn, and be given new challenges and opportunities, it is not a good fit.

    Advice to Management

    Spend as much time worrying about your employees as you do worry about stock earnings.
