    Pros

    Growing business, fast paced traditional and trend setting vending, current progressive product lines

    Cons

    The only long term employees are all related. Everyone else is expendable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put the company 1st, clear out the top heavy all in the family management team down to the productive people and stop using PGI employment as a form of family welfare program at the cost of business.
