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

    Sales Executive (Former Employee)
    Madison, WI

    ProsGreat 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.

    ConsAll 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 Senior ManagementI 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

    What a joke!

    Sales Executive (Current Employee)
    Madison, WI

    ProsNot coming up with any.

    ConsI 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 Senior Managementthey wont listen anyways...

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Boiler Room Sequel?

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsYou might be able to pay rent
    Work life balance is typical
    Might be able to travel a little bit if you do well

    ConsEverything 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

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet a clue

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
