    I worked at Pitney Bowes as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Nice people
    Health center on site
    Competitive Salary

    Cons

    The business units are very isolated from one another
    Everyone expressed intentions to be innovative and try new things but no one really changed the way they worked - I understand there have been major changes since I left though.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage people to work across silos
    Modernize leadership practices - a younger mentality from HR and more collaboration between execs would set a better example for the company to meet its potential and become truly innovative.

    I have been working at Pitney Bowes full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The benefits are pretty good even though they have started to whittle away at some things.

    Cons

    Old technology - I have a computer that came out in 2008 and there are no plans to upgrade. They still use XP network wide. It took them until 2012 to allow a version of internet explorer with tabs! Who uses IE6 these days? They tend to have meetings about meetings so nothing really gets done. When the economy went they got rid of service people and veterans who knew the products inside and out so they could make the bottom line better. The fact is they don't know what to do in an instant, social world and NONE of their internal processes are forward thinking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are not agile in today's world you are fragile.
