Good Company But They Are Selling A Dinosaur Product

Sales Representative (Current Employee)
Fort Lauderdale, FL (US)

I have been working at Pitney Bowes full-time for more than a year

ProsPitney Bowes is a really good company to work for. They have excellent health benefits and a good 401k plan. I was an outside sales rep and these positions work from home. You have a lot of freedom on the job. Unfortunately on 4/07/14 they laid off their entire outside sales force. I got caught in the lay off. We were all told via a conference call.

ConsThey do not train their employees. One of the worst training programs. I sold equipment to customers that I have never seen used. They teach you the product from a brochure.

Nice place to work

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Pitney Bowes

ProsCompany gives you the proper training and tools to get the job done. Places customer service as a key factor in retaining accounts.

ConsDwindling margins have made bonus' and merit increases a thing of the past. Layoffs and pay cuts are now the norm. Every time HR shows up people scurry under tables in fear of the Grimm Reaper.
