    No Opinion of CEO

    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.

    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.
