      Great People, Interesting Work, Decent Management Overall

      Mar 12, 2014 - Senior Software Engineer in Shelton, CT

      Business Outlook

      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.

      If you just want to grow roots... and never leave

      Pros

      Disclaimer: all information provided here is available to general public and potential applicants, or is solely my opinion. Albeit this review is anonymous, I intend to honor the Non-Disclosure Agreement that I have signed. I have worked for this company a number of years, and I have to say that over the years the company has tried its best to give its employees a comprehensive benefits package ranging from general "hygienics" like health care and education reimbursement to various discounts and growth opportunities through internal learning programs. If you invest your time, you could harness as much of that as you want.

      Cons

      Disclaimer: all information provided here is available to general public and potential applicants, or is solely my opinion. Albeit this review is anonymous, I intend to honor the Non-Disclosure Agreement that I have signed. The Pros are enough to put the company at three stars, but not higher. Number one con, at least for me, is that the growth opportunities are actually limited. The company may tout its commitment to employee advancement, but development in technical fields is limited. Look at the company's hiring page, and you will see that the majority of weight-pulling IT development, Information Security and related roles are located outside the United States. The C-Suite and Senior Management is based in the U.S., but that's about it. I understand the cost-cutting strategy, and it pays to develop, defend and support cheaper elsewhere and make more money in the U.S., but if you are interested in those fields at an entry/mid level - steer away from this company unless you want to move to Poland, India, or China. However, if you want to work in sales, marketing, product/project management or improvement, and just in general operations and production management - opportunities are almost always open. This is probably due to the con number two of working at Pitney Bowes: the pay does not match that of similar positions on the job market. Finally, the last but not least con for me is that it is not clear where the company is going. If you look at the company's financial statements and history, you will find out that since the election of the last CEO, the company has gradually lost over 75% of its stock value, its liquidity ratios are horrifying, and its largest segment has been losing more money than it had brought in since inception. In 2018, the company made roughly 6 cents on a dollar, depending how you calculate its profitability using their financial statements. Granted, the company is 100 years old and has been hauling along all the baggage of outdated culture, practices and processes, and it has been gradually disposing of them, but I cannot be a part of that any longer. I have done my share and hope that others will benefit from it.

      So - So

      Pros

      The company is working on redefining itself, it is trying hard to get the right people / strategies and other aspect in place. They really want to change. There are departments in PB that are great, and have phenomenal leadership. There's others that are sorely lacking. It's why you see reviews all over the place

      Cons

      The majority of senior management is either legacy, or IBM legacy. There is very little 'think different'. While they have a stated desire at the ELT to drive different direction, as it trickles down the Legacy PB kicks in. I've been disappointed that they do not seem to hold all execs and senior management to the same level of accountability

      Pros

      Marketing team is great, everyone is willing to listen and collaborate

      Cons

      Senior management doesn't interact much at all with other levels in organization. Inconsistent experiences with different teams - more unity needed

      Changing direction while burning bridges behind them. 2016

      Jul 13, 2016 - Systems Customer Service Representitave

      Pros

      Good benefits. Pay is good. Immediate management is good. Was stable. Local team worked well together. Most individuals in support units tried very hard to provide assistance when asked. Good support after "reduction in labor force". Unlimited training potential. Vertical movement in the company is still possible.

      Cons

      Pitney seems to be trying to convert to a software / application based company. They have implemented a new management software globally that is not user friendly. They have been reducing their labor force at a very fast pace in all divisions. They have changed from a customer centered company to a Six Sigma dysfunctional mess. They no longer put the customer first. Metrics are everything. It's a shame, Pitney used to be a great place to work. Raises are few and based on ever changing metrics, also based in politics. No job stability. Direction of Company is in flux. Lots of bad choices by senior management.

      Team Sales Manager

      CEO Approval

      Pros

      Very good compensation, strong benefits and an onsite nurse is great. Lots of good people that want to make the necessary changes to re-invent the company.

      Cons

      Many mid to mid senior management team members cling to "that is the way we have always done it" and it is not only counterproductive, it is bordering on hostile to those looking to make the changes top leadership has laid out.
