    I worked at Pitney Bowes full-time

    Pros

    Lots of room to grow, albeit too much bureaucracy in decision making for executions. Good people and flexible working conditions as long as you delivered on results. No real complaints

    Cons

    Strategy for smaller regions a little unclear, and too many top heavy with no sufficient knowledge of a small (but fast growing) region, hence many decisions are.. well decided at global which is quite typical.

    Advice to Management

    As they say, fighting a war requires a clear commitment to invest in region and the soldiers are already more than committed to want to ensure it will grow and will deliver. Forget the usual way of managing..

    No Opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    The Company has a mobile - agility policy, encouraging staff to work from home, and come in to the office for physical face-to-face meetings if the need arises or when there is departmental meetings. This flexibility enabled me to stay home to work whilst keeping an eye on the children. However, it is also a double-edged sword and opened to abuse by staff members.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, there are more cons than pros. Generally, the Management is very unresponsive to employee's requests for information and there is a dire lack of transparency in how decisions are reached. I have attended many Management meetings and you can hear only the monologue by a couple of individuals. There is also an inordinate delay in responding to employees' requests.

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

    Pros

    Pitney Bowes has a good brand value across the globe. It has lot of well established products and earning $1billion by patent itself

    Cons

    Singapore office does not have a well established technical team. All guys there from pre-sales and are not technically sound. So Managing Senior management and work will be too difficult in Pitney Bowes Inc. , singapore branch. No work life balance. You will be expected to work 24*7. They always recruit people for very very short term contract.

    No Opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    There are great opportunities here if you are getting into a new career.

    Cons

    There are too many 'life-rs' that are willing to keep doing things the same way and not want to take risks or push things. There are probably too many chiefs when it comes to main projects and it's like moving an iceberg when trying to implement new ideas.

    Advice to Management

    In order to make real change and get the ear of anyone in the business you have to be at VP level otherwise department directors are not really interested. There should be more focus and praise for working inter departments projects when someone other than a VP gets involved.
