    Pros

    excellent company to work for

    lots of incentives including raffles, leave home passes
    lots of opportunity to progress (if you show you have the qualities)

    Pros

    Company put you up in very nice accommodation for training. You felt like you were a part of something bigger. The software business is relatively new but growing and varied

    Cons

    Software is mainly acquisitions of smaller companies that were at different stages of development and didn't tie together strongly. This was evidently changing however

    I worked at Pitney Bowes full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay. Reflection this kept me from leaving for 4 years.

    Cons

    Price to pay for single Pro is way to high! Quarter to quarter target driven with structural and process deficiencies never addressed causing low staff morale. Perverse attitude of passing low productivity onto clients as equals man days billed is cynical.

    Advice to Management

    None.
    To staff get out!

    Was at Pitney Bowes for over ten years. Culture just got worse every year.

    Two jobs since leaving a year ago. First company site closure with 300 redundancies had better culture even when redundancies announced.

    Pros

    Autonomy in the role, Senior leadership, Clarity of overall vision and strategy

    Cons

    If you're in a global role, be prepared to burn the candle at both ends of the day. Still some legacy mindset and entitlement culture. Some parts of the business still tolerate inappropriate behaviour

    Advice to Management

    Continue to provide the clarity and direction for the significant business transformation. Flush out inappropriate management behaviour further down the organisation
