      Pros

      Great range of platform experience, mainly thanks to acquisitions. Benefits are good

      Cons

      - Everyone is a commodity, showing any sort of want to improve things is met with managers disapproval. Politics is more important then technical improvements. - Senior management have no idea about technology. They trow around terminology in meetings that they have little to zero understand of in an vain attempt to sound like they know what their doing / feel important - Complete misunderstanding of what's needed for the engineers, instead people sit in meeting and complain about irrelevant data rather then concentrating on making good products which sell to customers

      Bad inter-office politics and rigid old fashion working

      Pros

      It was really good work-life balance don’t think do as ask

      Cons

      Deep Conflicts between IT & Engineering department businesses are also hurting bad due to this. Turf fighting all day long. CEO is helpless too. Too many resignations in upper management last year. Feels like high political corridor, not a good place for people from international offices, wHQ dictates everything leaders sitting on top are rigid and biased to old relationships. HR is blind or helpless in front of senior management biases.

      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.
