    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.

    Cold, "Old School" Environment

    Ship Without A Rudder

    Sales Position (Former Employee) Jacksonville, FL (US)

    ProsWell known brand and name. Industry leading technology. Well established corporate partnerships throughout the US.

    ConsIndustry leading technology is becoming more and more irrelevant. Training is poor and follow up is worse, almost non-existent. Some company management does not follow the high ethical standards they proclaim. The culture is not based on mutual trust or respect. Employees are treated as if they are always suspected of being less than honest or ethical. Up side compensation has steadily declined. Senior management has attempted to "change the culture" by doing the same things over and over again and then are surprised when they get the same results.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you want to change the direction and future of Pitney Bowes you have have to do more than give "lip service" to change. You must change the culture and thinking of the company, starting at the top.

    Retention Specialist (Former Employee) Neenah, WI (US)

    ProsWonderful co workers and pleasant work areas. Wonderful benefits for regular employees.

    ConsTraining was very lacking, it made the job seem impossible. I worked so hard to learn the job and tried to excel. Every night my head just hurt.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIn training have a lot and lot of practice. Let the trainees work on teams and do loads more practices.
