    I worked at Pitney Bowes full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There are great opportunities here if you are getting into a new career.

    Cons

    There are too many 'life-rs' that are willing to keep doing things the same way and not want to take risks or push things. There are probably too many chiefs when it comes to main projects and it's like moving an iceberg when trying to implement new ideas.

    Advice to Management

    In order to make real change and get the ear of anyone in the business you have to be at VP level otherwise department directors are not really interested. There should be more focus and praise for working inter departments projects when someone other than a VP gets involved.

    I worked at Pitney Bowes full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    1. Good work life balance and flexibility 3. Very responsive HR and other departments.

    Cons

    Other than above three points not good place to work for. 1. Company do not care about employee. 2. Focus is more on clients and sales 3. Less or invisible learning opportunity 4. Zero growth opportunities. PB will keep you in the same role until you retire. 5. Give your 100 % to the company in return you will get peanuts. No appreciation at all. 6. Company can use any personal thing you shared with them against you. This was not expected from HR I would suggest stay away from this company unless fresher. In few years you will realise you ended up with zero NEW skills as well as old skills gone being in PB.

    Advice to Management

    Can't advise anything. It's sinking ship anyways.

    I have been working at Pitney Bowes full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    - Generous holiday, competitive pay and other benefits - Flexible working culture - many colleagues work between office and home - Plenty of opportunities to stretch yourself if you show willing and commitment - Company undergoing transformation, so committed to ongoing investment in new business opportunities

    Cons

    - Pace of change can result in quality of some solutions falling short - US-centric business - you have to fight harder for what you need if you're not based in the US

    Advice to Management

    Be quicker to close down solutions that are not beneficial to the business or to our clients, better to be honest with clients rather than string them along

    I worked at Pitney Bowes full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    If management can see potential in you, there is a ton of training on offer.

    Cons

    Atmosphere in the office can be tense, if targets aren't hit, everyone is in a mood. Plus, the whole stealing someone else's sale is a thing here, it's not a 'team', it's everyone in for themselves.
