    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.
