    I worked at PMI Group full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Environment set by upper level management was very positive, and encouraged loyalty to the company. It felt like working with family members - very little company politics went on and colleagues mostly supported one another.

    Cons

    Limited resources led to sporadic training, expense curtailment, etc. Morale decreased over time as we were hit with budget cuts and layoffs.

    Nice People, learned a lot

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at PMI Group

    Pros

    Both management and staff very friendly, good work/life balance, good health care. Regular All Hands meetings are enjoyable and motivate you to help grow the business. Free donut Fridays are great too!

    Cons

    Pay is a bit lower than similar Bay Area companies. There can be too much politics, especially at the vice president level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen more to your employees! Many high level decisions about the future of the business are made at the VP/SVP level without input from lower level employees.

    Pros

    Great employees, good pay, awesome vacation package (4 weeks at the door), work life balance.
    They encourage transfers between departments for professional growth.

    Cons

    It's a boys' club, men are preferred for promotions over women.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company is in run off, so I don't think it matters.

    I worked at PMI Group

    Pros

    I loved this company and the job more than life itself. I am devastated that they downsized and eliminated my position and area. I had been meeting and exceeding my goals each month.

    Cons

    They just had a lay off and an early retirement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of having peoples jobs eliminated, comissions should have been eliminated until the company regained profitability . the base salary was good and the staff you had would have continued to grow the company.
