    Wish they would have kept PBMS

    Team Lead (Current Employee)

    ProsPBMS was very generous with there vacation and personal leave policy.. not may companies give you your hours at the beginning of every year and let your borrow against them which was very nice.

    ConsSince selling PBMS to Novitex a lot of former employees have left,, things certainly did not change for the better. Still no raises extreme micro managing,, with Novitex,, they took away 3 or 4 holidays Pitney Bowes was a far better company to work for

    A company that has given me many opportunities

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat people, if you are willing to work hard you will have a lot of opportunities, the company is making much better decisions than it did 5 years ago

    Hard working, loss of focus

    Solutions Architect (Former Employee) New York, NY (US)

    ProsThe company as a whole is very good. There are some great people that propel them forward and some workers that really out their best foot forward.

    ConsConversely, upper management makes many decisions that do not have the customer's best interest in mind. There are many decisions that are made based on the bottom line that affects customer support and satisfaction.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPoll your customer base before making decisions that are going adversely affect their support. Do not let the sales team dictate the future of the company. Sales is the backbone, but support and innovation is the bread and butter.

    ProsCompany has been in business since 1920, many people have been with the company for 30+ years

    ConsLack of communication, employees that have been with the company for years are not helpful to new employees - there is an expectation that you should know everything.
