    I worked at Personal Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This company will treat you amazingly, the work benefits the rewards of which there are plenty. Managers are always at the other end of the phone and no end of support from other colleagues, regular training session for new employees and great incentives

    Cons

    This job is not at all for the faint hearted
    It is HARD work and you have to be constantly trying to improve yourself

    I have been working at Personal Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have worked for Personal Group for 3 years now and I really enjoy working here. It is a relaxed place to work and as long as you put in the hard work you can have a lot of fun along the way. I can honestly say that it is one of the best companies I have worked for.

    Cons

    I love it here at PG. However, sometimes it would be nice to get paid for all the extra work that is put in at our busier times throughout the year.

    I have been working at Personal Group full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    When I originally started working for Personal Group 10 years ago, it was a job to pay my bills; today, I have a career I never thought i'd have. I have been down several paths within the company and each department has invested time in me, to help me where I am today.

    Personal Group has always had a family feeling to it, once you start working here and become a member of the family, you never want to leave. The people make the company a great place to work.

    Cons

    There are very few cons to working for Personal Group; the main one for me is having to pay to park, maybe the cost of a parking permit could be included as an employee benefit once you have been with the company for a certain period of time.

    Pros

    Friendly environment, great people to work with. Senior Managers are approachable and welcoming. Close to the city centre for shopping

    Cons

    There isn't really anywhere for staff to have a break (i.e. canteen). Field sales seem to get all of the good incentives and head office staff get none.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that the staff in head office do as much work as the guys in the field and maybe reward them too!

    I have been working at Personal Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Uncapped commission, company car of your choice after hitting target for 12 months, list includes brand new Mercedes, BMW Audi's. All expenses paid holidays for top 10 people in the company (only 50 sales staff). The company is growing and since I've been here I've seen people progress into other parts of the business! One of the best companies I've worked for. The benefits are amazing, too many to list!

    Cons

    Hard work, you work shifts and all over the UK but this is made clear in the interview and again in training.

    Advice to Management

    The management have all done our job so there is very good support and training !
