    I worked at Pitney Bowes

    Pros

    Since PB holds contracts with large corporate organizations, they are a great company for entry level jobs that give you visibility and exposure to bigger corporations.

    Cons

    Opportunity for growth within PB is slow paced.
    Benefits could be better.
    Corporate account managers should visit the accounts and employees working externally more often.

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

    Pros

    If you are motivated by contests for trips, electronics and bonuses then they will definitely give you what you need to motivate you for success. they have lots of room to move withing the company and you can work with the best Marketing team ever!

    Cons

    It is a fortune 500 company so just like others you get lost sometimes in the mix of things. They will sometimes make wrong decisions with a valued employee and let them go instead making a situation better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure who you have running your teams is worth the time and is a true leader. spend more time with offices not just locked up in boardrooms.

    I worked at Pitney Bowes full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great coworkers, frequent team events, compensation was good, hours of work (9-5), paid vacation. great benefits

    Cons

    Micromanaged, selling products in an industry that is decreasing, inadequate training. little room for growth. sales people who have been in the role for a long time receive majority of the accounts in "open" territory which makes it hard for new Account Manager's to succeed.

    Pros

    Great People, decent compensation, decent work environment, easy.

    Cons

    Terrible inter-company communication. Awful company portrayal to customers through too many communications channels. Unconsolidated systems and old databases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop giving handouts to employees, stop favouritism based on seniority, consistency is key across all channels and ALL your employees will respect you.

    I worked on a summer internship at Pitney Bowes

    I worked at Pitney Bowes

    Pros

    -Great co-workers
    -Comfortable working environment
    -Not overworked / even distribution of workload

    Cons

    I can't think of anything that was a stand-out con in my time there, however I may have preferred greater responsibility and development (however, understandable since summer is generally a slower period)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep listening to the employees! The company is headed in the right direction.

    Pros

    Good access to talent programs, strong relationships within the business unit, global opportunities.

    Neutralized the culture of our company after the acquisition. Unclear the role PB wanted us to play in the organization. Internal competition to market.
