    Pros

    Growing company that provides employees opportunities to grow and expand experience and development and excellent work/life balance as not many companies provide part-time management positions.

    Cons

    Would like to see management continue to share big picture goals and growth.

    I have been working at Princeton Group full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    As a veteran sales type person, I've found the freedom to build your own success at this job is unlike ANY other. Dealing with top level Executives as clients keeps the sales process brief, to the point, and extremely professional. This allows for an ever-changing work environment allowing the time to fly! Truth is I wish there was more time in the day... that's a rare find in sales. Incredibly talented leadership, product that stands MILES above the competition, and a plan for growth that exceeds anything I've ever seen. SOLID place to be.

    Cons

    It's a grind. This job is definitely not for the meek, boring, non-energetic. You control your future, which is really a "pro", however a vast majority do not see the "pro" in that. For those that understand the bigger picture of building a client base, it's perfect. If you're not hungry, money-motivated, and willing to EARN your piece, it's not for you. If you are though....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep building, keep growing, never stop. Simple.

    Pros

    Family oriented, supportive of personal & professional development, excellent pay structure and bonus opportunities, great benefits. Upper management is supportive of work-life balance. Truly talented colleagues... bright, humorous, dedicated and hard working people.

    Cons

    None that I can really think of. You get back what you put in......If you are lazy, this is not the job for you.

    Keep doing what you're doing

    Pros

    Not coming up with any.

    Cons

    I don't even know where to begin.

    If you want to act out the movie "Boiler Room" in real life, then feel free to sign up. Odds are you probably know someone who has worked there, because they go through employees like most of us go through socks. Training consisted of two days of reading a script over and over that is a textbook example of telemarketing..which is not good btw. They then turn you lose, or throw you to the wolves if you will, into a type of cutthroat atmosphere that you cant even believe. You look for your own leads which have been already called hundreds of times by former PGI employees, not to mention the other 25+ companies who do the same thing. Management will not help in anyway. They call themselves "closers", but the only thing they will close is the small chance of a fun or rewarding career.

    Base pay and comission is a joke. You put in 100% effort and get maybe 2% return. They want you to think that you are privileged to be working for this great company, but in reality there are ton of jobs that will treat you like a human being, and not as a lead generators. As long as there are new college grads looking for experience, this company will stay in business. Take it from me though, it is better to be unemployed than to work at Princeton Group!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    they wont listen anyways...

    Everything about this place is a con
    Blind leading the blind
    Management is deceptive and very unprofessional
    Untrustworthy sales cycle
    Make sure you know your commissions

    Don't take this job unless you are really dedicated to sales

    I worked at Princeton Group

    Pros

    Great company with a great Product. If you are good at sales and like sports this is a great place to work. You are basically selling a product that sells itself (Masters/ Super Bowl/ other sports packages). Everyone there is great and the environment is relatively relaxed.

    Cons

    All the usually of a sales job. You are expected to be on the phone constantly between 8-12 and 1-5. You are also expected to develop your own leads which is the most difficult part. This is a sales job, don't take it just because you like sports. You won't succeed if you are not into sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would recommend slightly more training and guidance if you hire recent grads with no sales experience. Other than that their isn't too much they could change. Either you can sell or you can't
