    I have been working at Pitney Bowes full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Under CEO Marc Lautenbach's leadership, Pitney Bowes is transforming from a 90 years old mailing companies to a 21 century digital commerce company. I am proud of being a part of changes. I love the senior management team and I also love the people I work with. Flexible work time and flexible work location made easier for me to take care career and families at the same time.

    Cons

    The company is still under constant changes. If you don't like to change, this is may not be your first choice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set a priority to retain talent while transforming the business and driving growth. Local management is critical to set culture and motivate your best people.

    Pros

    New leadership is taking the company in the right direction. Nice new office space.

    Cons

    There are still too many of the old guard left who are not up to par with the new. Promotions and opportunities are limited as the company contracts to focus on the new business model.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop making promises to employees you have no intention of keeping. The real focus is the turnaround with the sale or breakup of the company not far behind. It's a great 2 year stint for someone who wants to be part of the change then move on.

    I have been working at Pitney Bowes full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Work life balance; Good engineers; global culture;
    Comparable salaries; Good benefits (used to be better, but still better than most);
    Stable company with a big R&D staff

    Cons

    Management less process based and more personality based - historically.
    They need to get rid of the focus on a few "blued-eyed" boys and make it more performance based. Still not terribly lop-sided.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to get rid of the focus on a few "blued-eyed" boys and make it more performance based. Decisions and opinions should be on the merit of the argument and context, not just who is delivering it.

    Pros

    Great international presence. Offers flexible working available (both in terms of hours and remote working). Some attempts made to engage with the workforce.

    Cons

    Salary not competitive. Progression depends to a large extent on who you know and not how well you do your job. A lot of red-tape. Slow to adapt to changes in the market place.
