    Pros

    You get great benefits with this company. The senior sales staff was always willing to help you to succeed. I enjoyed the sales meetings they always had motivational stories.

    Cons

    The managers play favorites and are also lazy when it comes to helping you with questions. The training program that was in place then is terrible. I hope that they have changed some things. Trainings should be by a person not a series of boring recorded messages.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to your sales staff and help them to make more money because it only benefits you as well.

    I worked at Pitney Bowes

    Pros

    Set territories with over 600 clients and I worked from home only traveling 2-3 days a week.

    Cons

    Had 3 different territories in 2 years. Most of the larger clients were given to major account reps leaving only smaller clients that were downsizing to smaller equipment. That resulted in much lower SQC.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make all territories equa

    Pros

    The GM was very helpful and I learned so much from him. They treat all employees equal, not matter the position. All great people to work with. The GM made working there so much fun. We had PB games every year that he made up himself.

    Cons

    The cons for me were working in a production type atmosphere. I prefer the office atmosphere, but here they are kind of all in the same.

    Pros

    Great co-workers! Pretty laid back atmosphere. Loved my boss but he transferred into another roll. I left when he did because things started to be restructured.

    Cons

    Could have more vacation, but the benefits were pretty solid.

    Pros

    People are generally friendly, enthusiastic, and talented. The offices are modern.

    Cons

    It was impossible to get H.R. to make exceptions when my education qualified me for a higher-level job. I chose to leave rather than continue to be under-employed and under-acknowledged. I would have liked t stay, but rules is rules. I was also disappointed that the job holders meetings rejected people's suggestions almost universally.
