    Current Employee - Associate Software Engineer 

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

    Pros

    Relaxed work environment No interference from sales in the engineering department

    The work gets repetitive and monotonous. Upper management doesn't have a line of sight for all products

    Take feedback from engineering groups to improve the products and services.

    I worked at Pitney Bowes full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -> Very nice and easy going people in Melbourne office. I mean all of them -> working from home is welcome, especially if your manager is located in another city. -> free coffee,fruit, snacks and beer. Some company events every year -> excellent office location!! close to everywhere -> desk is large -> allow long annual leave request (4weeks +)

    Cons

    -> products are all out of date -> losing customers every year -> revenue is going down every year so it is cutting jobs and hiring graduates. As a result, this is a terrible negative loop.

    Advice to Management

    It is difficult to make advice. All products in PB need to be reviewed and seek a better solution. I would suggest: PB products need to be hosted in cloud and more mobile friendly. (it is hard because the development team is not in Aus) Stop hiring too many graduates. Get some smart people back!

    I worked at Pitney Bowes full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great environment to learn and be pushed very hard. You will enhance your skills. Non-management employees are so friendly, hardworking, and dedicated.

    Cons

    -CEO is a typical mask faced corporate product; would not admit truth, has failed to lift the company performance even thought he has had 5 years, and resorts to fire hard working employees for his failure. -Management (90%) are truly a bunch of self-focused uncaring people. They pull every bit out of you and never appreciate it. You only exist to benefit them. They always blame others for their own lacking.... -Old-school environment and thought process. Old processes and systems they cannot replace because they are performing poorly on a global scale. -Cost cutting and downsizing left right and centre. Company has been shrinking for 4 years. So many redundancies. -Don't believe the job adverts that says "We do the right thing the right way." They let long terms employees go 3 days before Christmas because they want to save on the public holiday payment. -

    Advice to Management

    You will start succeeding once you start to care for your employees, get on with the modern world, become agile as opposed to old-school, become less hierarchical that you so cherish, and exercise some transparency so you can keep your employee morale up.
