    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.

    - Market has declined rapidly and steps have not been taken to address it - Training dept was made redundant so All training is outsourced which results in poor quality. - company has no interest in making people better so therefore people have a closed mindset. - All that matters is the metrics you are measured against even if they don’t mean anything

    Negative Outlook

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

    Pros

    Almost all employees are female in Hatfield office. Especially the persons in charge. This is nice if you either a female yourself and would like to work in such an environment or you just like women! Apart from this it is a nice but pretty average shared service centre office environment.

    Cons

    If you don't like office politics this will not be the place to work for you as it is run by only a few girls who you NEED to get along with otherwise you WILL find it difficult to work there. Industry is outdated even their e- commerce business won't fix the issues this company has to deal with. The business is declining year on year so is their stock (share) price. A simple look at the stock price will show you the state of the company, so will the published Financial Statements that you can easily look at on their website in case you don't believe me or would like to see it for yourself!
