Recent Layoff Tells/Reviews on Pitney Bowes

Management is out of touch

Promotions sometimes go to people with longevity instead of merit and opposite is the case with lay-offs.

Layoff 2011

Still waiting on Pitney Bowes Corporate for the Payout of my remaining vacation time and sales incentives for Q4. It has been 1 month since my release and PB corporate is dragging their feet. Typical PB bureaucracy.

Sales

I was laid off and not paid commission. They will not return calls or emails and want me to sign an agreement for two weeks pay. If I don't sign, I do not get paid for two weeks. If I do sign, I can't fight my commission battle. It seems illegal or at least unethical. This company is backwards.

Read the policy you signed. You leave, no commish. Standard policy on uninstalled orders. Move on!

Pitney Bowes I Will Not Miss Part 1

I was also released yesterday. No criteria, no reasoning, but with plenty of hand-wringing and statements of "It was a corporate decision" being passed out handily.

My father was with Pitney Bowes, and I still have his Pacemaker ring on my dresser drawer. This was one of the few effects that were given to me by the coroner's office the day he died. He loved Pitney Bowes, and I suppose it was a really cool company when Reagan was president. So I joined this company over a year ago with the promise of strategic transformation, after 22 years in High Tech. I drank the cool-aid, and in one year, had completed training though what the company calls "Silver Certification". I was prepped to be the next generation. Right now, I feel I truly feel like a next Generation sucker. 

In truth, this was not totally unexpected. Pitney is at the end of a product's life-cycle in some divisions, and has an un-tapped market for a couple of good products in a few other divisions. I came to the company with a wealth of experience in companies that dwarfed Pitney Bowes in both revenue and sales execution, and had much to contribute. I fought the dis-enchantment around me, and pressed on. Some really talented people can be found roaming the halls.
