Pitney Bowes was a great experience and I would never have left if my department wasn't transferred to Stamford (I lived in Derby at the time) and the cost of commuting became too prohibitive, so I searched for a position closer to home.

Territory Account Manager (Current Employee), FL – January 16, 2014
Pros: working remotely
Cons: high objectives
I have worked for and against Pitney Bowes throughout my career. They are a good company. They get a bad wrap from customers that is more often that not warranted. It's not that customers are bad it's just that people neglect to put proper thought into the mail equipment and what the needs are.
The industry has been changing throughout my two decades – more... of experience. Mail Volume is shrinking and the push is to have all of the business and that is a great goal but when you already have 8 out of 10 meters in my territory that's a real uphill battle.
In a recent list provided to me I had 650 competitive meters in my area which sounds great at first but then divide that by 5 years the average term of a mail machine lease This leaves me with 11.3 meters to switch if I can find them in the first place. The company wants me to convert 3 a month. That's a tall order. – less

PB does not value it's new employees, unless they are in the technology field
Human Resources (Former Employee), Troy, NY – January 6, 2014
Pros: great community outreach
PB does NOT value it's current employees, preferring to hire outsiders from IBM and other so-called prestigious consulting firms.
PB is NOT GE, Google, Apple nor Microsoft, so they should value the talent they have. They are not going to attract the best and brightest if they continue along the path of this talent management stuck in the past!
Their – more... HR department is stuck in the 1960's, and keeps incompetent people because it cannot deal with "out-of the box" thinkers.
If you are an experienced professional, stay away. This place is very insular, particularly at HQ. Don't drink the Kool-Aid. Take your talent elsewhere! – less
