    I have been working at PMI Group

    Pros

    Great work life balance, and flexible schedule. People are nice and friendly.

    Cons

    There isn't any incentive to go the extra mile. Employees are promoted based on senority.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to raise expectations, standards and have clear communication with employees.

    Loved my job more than life

    Former Employee - Account Manager in Hartford, CT

    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.

    PMI is a great place to work - but it could be better

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Manager  in  Walnut Creek, CA

    I have been working at PMI Group

    Pros

    Through a profit organization, PMI Group puts their employees first. This isn't to say people before revenue, necessarily, but the environment is such that everybody is made to feel just as important as anyone else.

    Cons

    They can lean a bit too far on the conservative side. Granted, it's an insurance company - and "ready, aim, shoot" is better than "ready, shoot, aim" - but in some instances they need to find a better balance. I've seen to many projects in "ready, ready, aim, ready, reload ... "

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring more entry-level people into brainstorming. Get the ideas from the people actually doing the work. In theory (and it should be in practice), they know more about what they do than anyone else, so it makes sense to find out what that work is.
