Pros

Good benefits comparable to other companies of its size. There is an inside rep that helps with overwhelming workload. PFG does provide Above average Marketing tools. You can make some very good money here with alot of hours. An average Rep makes about $60,000/Year. The very good reps make about $80-100,000/year and up. Its very hard work, but can be very rewarding.

Cons

Management not very supportive. Management does not lead and mentor, they criticise and walk away--they are not there as a team member. Higher management hire alot of outside employees for management roles. They hired someone that I used to work with at another company to manage a team. This same manager was hired knowing he was fired for being so abusive to his employees and upseting customers. Reps from that team would constantly tell me he was just as abusive to them, and their customers did not want to see him. All this in just a couple of months at PFG. Needless to say, I lost alot of respect for the company very quickly. I have moved on to another company now and happy. You use your own car with no allowance. PFG does not provide a gas or phone allowance either.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire within. Nobody knows the company and policies better than someone who has been there. Middle management should be riding with someone from their team 3 or 4 times a week to mentor and help with issues they may be facing. Have training seminars for sales staff. There were sales meetings every month, all we saw was food. I know it is a foodservice company, but there needed to be training seminars as well. No matter how long you have been doing this, there should be constant training. Brett Favre gets coached every week, look at his experience.
