    Pros

    large international organisation which should provide plenty of opportunity for career development.

    Cons

    in my experience there was a chasm separating management from the directorate which was impossible to cross. Some instances of bullying were apparent but swept under the carpet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't believe the management would take any notice of advice. They didn't when I was there so why now?

    I worked at Pitney Bowes full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The senior leadership group knows what they are doing. The good news is that there is a future for PB as a company that operates in the digital space.

    Cons

    The bad news is that as the company continues to morph into something new, the traditional business will continues to shrink. The result - there is not enough of an account base left to realistically feed the few sales reps who are left. A lot of work for not a lot of $! Physical mail in not growing. Expect more layoffs as PB continues to constantly re-org until it gets to where it needs to be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What management?

    I have been working at Pitney Bowes full-time

    Pros

    Benefits are good and career development is available.

    Cons

    I have no complaints as of today. The company seems to really care about the culture and takes ideas and runs with them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The use of a large amount of temps is discouraging for their chances of getting hired on full time. There are very loyal workers that could use the benefits.

    Old-school company in a dying industry (postage/mail) struggling to catch up with faster-moving, younger companies who have passed them by -- especially in the online space.

    Pros

    New leadership is making changes, adding shareholder value

    Continue to push for culture change and move to "one company" approach for customers.
