Watch out for this company!!! Princeton Executive Group (PEG) is a rip-off and a fraud. I don't know how this people can sleep at night knowing what they are doing to others. DO YOUR RESEARCH ABOUT THIS COMPANY AND FIND OUT FOR YOURSELF!!! Check out Broward County's Better Business Bureau for a full list of complaints, search internet blogs, etc. If you think I am lying search these sites for yourself. So many people cannot be wrong!! You are better off dealing directly with the head hunters or better yet, posting your resume at Monster.com!!

What they sell you in their already well rehersed interview presentation does not come even close to their actual service / delivery / performance. They sell you their full access to the key decision makers at leading South Florida companies at a high price (usually b/w $4,000 to $10K). This is all "BS". They only have a data base of businesses that you can actually search for yourself on the internet. The only service they provide is re-writing your resume and mass mailing it to everyone. You even have to do the call backs yourself!! This is not worth $6K !!! You can do that yourself!! Once you pay they take refuge in that you signed a non-refundable contract with you (they know the wording of this contract by hart - see previous complaints on this website). Thus, if they don't deliver they think they do not have to pay you back. They have this scam all too well under control and very well managed. They also know that for the amount of money you paid them ($6K avg.) you are not going to hire a lawyer for PEG's breach of contract because it could actually cost you more to try to get your money back. Also, since you hired PEG to remain confidential in your job search, you will expose yourself to your current employer (or future employers) through a litigation. Thus, most people do not take this matter further and PEG goes home with YOUR MONEY in their pocket.

The worst part is their name has carried so much bad rep in the local executive search industry that most companies will not deal with you when they receive your "introduction letter" through PEG. They see you as another deadbeat who took PEG's bait and will not take you seriously. Don't waste your money!!!!!

I am sure you will soon see a response below from PEG's president, Robert Migroom, trying to protect the image of his business. He will make legal threats, that he takes these accusations seriously and that they will conact the approriate authorities to report these "false complaints". At the end, he knows that more people are learning about his scam and that his racketeering days are numbered.

SPREAD THE WORD!!!

It is all true.

AUTHOR: George - (U.S.A.)

I do agree that all of the commentary is comical. Sadly, it is all true. I am a victim of Princeton Executive Group as well.

If anyone has any doubt, read all of the blogs, as they all have a mysteriously similar tone to them.

I am not relying on this site for any resolution to my problem. I have contacted the BBB in Florida to help me with that.

Former employee? Please, give me a break.

AUTHOR: Robert - (U.S.A.)

I am glad that others are joining this website. This means that my efforts of spreading the word are working. It sure has PEG's people logged in every day to see what truth will be said next.

Disgruntled employee?? Give me a break. How many employees do you think PEG has? Five, maybe 10? Don't you think they would know by now who is throwing out into the open all the details about their racket? They would have probably sued me by now for "defamation" if I was a former employee they would be knocking on my door. I was a "customer" just like anyone else that fell for their scam and it cost me money! So yes, I am a disgruntled customer who felt for their scam and am really mad about it. I am doing whatever I can to help others not to fall for it just as I did. Moreover, if I were a competitor, do you think I would waste my time writing this blog? Come on ... commercial terrorism? That was a funny one.

To anyone reading this, go through PEG's process and find out for yourself. Better yet, go to Google and do your search under "Princeton Executive Group". There are others like me out there who are finding out about this company. The more people know the better.

Now "James", feel free to put your feedback. It's a free country. However, aren't you busy at your new job that PEG found you? Anyone reading this can easily notice that you are just part of the scam and you will not be taken seriously.

To others like Chris, thank you for your feedback. Let your friends know about PEG, specially your friends in Florida. Sooner or later Robert Milgroom (d.b.a. Princeton Executive Group) will have to close shop and all my efforts will be worth while. SPREAD THE WORD!!

So Why Are YOU Commenting?

AUTHOR: Chris - (U.S.A.)

"Davis" in "California"? I am exactly who I say I am; I've been on here for over a year now, commenting on all sorts of things. I especially love to comment about dishonest, scammy & sleazy people because I've lived an eventful life & have come into contact with both good & bad people. I have a pretty good bullsh!t detector & I'll certainly comment if I see something phony.

Ex-employee? Hahahahahaha - I would NEVER in a million years be interested in that line of work, never have been. I simply like to make comments like everyone else who posts here. It makes it more interesting when you can spot the phonies!

Chris in California

AUTHOR: Davis - (U.S.A.)

THis has been comical to read. It is obvious that the negative comments in this interchange are that of a ex-employee who is on a vendetta to discredit. Why would someone in California comment on a Florida firm - are there not enough things to worry about in California that to care about a firm in Florida that an "alleged" client is unhappy with. Chris in California must also be they ex-employee.

Why is it so ubelievable that there are satisfied clients? Maybe the only person that had unhappy clients is "Robert in Dleray and Chris in California". End this soap opera and do something worthwhile with your respective "lives" - raise money for the families of our troops in Iraq.

DON'T THINK SO, "JAMES"!

AUTHOR: Chris - (U.S.A.)

To me it is QUITE obvious that Robert knows EXACTLY what he's talking about, and that you are merely a company shill - probably Milgroom himself! I've dealt with your kind before.

You are insane to expect anyone to pay $6,000 or $9,000 for your minimal services; i.e., putting lists together & giving referrals that the person could do him/herself anyway. Knowing this yourself, & knowing that people who are desperate for a job will do anything, I definitely believe Robert's statements.

I, too worked for a dishonest businessman about 20 years ago & just because I have things to say about his integrity, does not mean that I'm "disgruntled" nor "making things up."

The persistence with which "James" tries to defend this company only makes it obvious that it's a fake rebuttal. And yes, the party line verbage is especially fake & laughable!

Robert in Delray you have been exposed

AUTHOR: James - (U.S.A.)

As an outside observer, I have enjoyed watching this exchange. At first I thought Robert from Delray had a valid complaint, but as he continued to expose himself and his alleged "knowledge" of the inner workings of Princeton, he can only be a former disgruntled employee. Any statements or claims made by him (if it is a him) are bogus. I cannot wait to read Robert from Delray's response to my observation.

Robert In Delray needs to get a life

AUTHOR: James - (U.S.A.)

In reading other postings and responses from Princeton, I am now convinced that "Robert" in Delray Beach is a disgruntled former employee and is attemting a smear campaign, how sad to blame the world for your own inadequacies as a man, husband and father.

The other clients I referred to as meeting, I met in the lobby prior to appointments.

Again, Princeton was great experience for me and my family and I can only speak for me. "Robert: will without a doubt reply and I am thankful that Pricneton had the insight to terminate such a cancer.

And for the record my first name is James.

Do not believe their response!!

AUTHOR: Robert - (U.S.A.)

To any one reading the reply by Mr. James of Green Cove Springs know this: Princeton Executive Group does not provide any personal information of their clients to prospective customers for reference purposes due to "confidentiality reasons as they like to call it. Thus, there is no way that Mr. James had the opportunity to speak with other P.E.G. clients as this information is kept confidential and would have not been provided by P.E.G.

Furthermore, they make 100% sure that for each meeting you attend will not conflict with their next appointment, thus avoiding any contact with clients and isolating each experience with P.E.G. So do not believe the Good Samaritan Mr. James as it is probably Mr. Shyne or some other P.E.G. employee that needs to pay their mortgage. The answer is even well rehearsed. It reads like slogan, don't you think? due to their marketing, coaching and professionalism I am in the career I always knew I should have and at the salary level I deserve.

Come on Mr. Milgroom, you can do better than that! You usually respond very quickly to anyone's blog at this website and this time you haven't? You send someone else to do a positive reply for you?

Everyone reading this: Spread the word! Help others not to fall victim to Princeton Executive Group!

Thank You Princeton

AUTHOR: James - (U.S.A.)

Reading these comments I felt compelled to state the facts of my experience.

I had a great experience with Princeton. Due to their marketing, coaching and professionalism I am in the career I always knew I should have and at the salary level I DESERVE. They are not a scam, a fraud. Every individual I dealt with at the firm were first rate.

On occassion I had the opportunity to speak with other clietns and they shared similar positive results. I would recommend Princeton to everyone that could benefit from their services.

Commercial Terrorism?

AUTHOR: Robert - (U.S.A.)

Commercial terrorism?!?!? Now that's a good one! By the time anyone reads this response know that I will still be laughing at Robert Milgroom's response!

Anyone reading these reports and the constant rebuttals by Robert Milgroom shows you that these people are professional scam artists. Why does he wastes so much time at this rip-off report's website? Why doesn't he just concentrates in actually doing what people pay him for?

To all reading this report, remember this ... if it sounds too good to be true it probably isn't. They are very professional in how they present themselves and are very convincing in their sales pitch. Of course, they have 10+ years of experience scamming people so they have become really good at it. Like every scam, one day it will end. I wouldn't be surprised that in a year or two, when the Princeton Executive Group's name gets "tarnished" with the reality of their scam that they will change their name and location just to prey on new clients. Maybe they will name themselves Harvard Executive Group or maybe Yale Executive Group you know, a fancy name to reflect credibility.

Mr. Milgroom, I am sure you will reply again to my comments since you have a lot of time on your hands and you have to protect your racketeering business. Try to grow a conscience despite your age. It is never too late to do the right thing and remember that what you are doing to others really affects them. They came to your company because of what you promised and you are stealing their money for your benefit. They could have used that money for something more important (their child's education, pay down debts, etc.). Don't prey on them just because they are in need and came to you for help. When you do bad things to other is comes back to bite you later in life.

To all reading my response, these are bad people. Spread the word so others like me and you do not fall prey to them again. With your help we can put an end to their business. Remember his name Robert Milgroom.

Princeton Executive Group is a scam and waste of money/time

AUTHOR: Mike - (U.S.A.)

Surfing for jobs through the web I came across an add for a specific job, which ended up being a bait and was contacted by Princeton Executive Group.

The 'interview for a position' ended up being just an intro to their 'revolutionary' system to find a job.

I was called for a second meeting, this time with my wife, which was a good reason for the 'counselor' to pressure me into accepting their 'incredible offer' ... $9,000 for their help and demanded my credit card.

I told the counselor I needed time, and this person told me that if I wanted to succeed in life, I had to accept immediately. I said no. The counselor told me he could give me an additional day as he could open a place 'reserved' with the best job counselor.

Obviously, I decided never to contact PEG again.
Consumers have to be aware that PEG will push people that are desperate for better jobs to make quick decisions, even if it means paying thousands of dollars.

Hope this helps people that are being pressured to accept giving this money away.

BOGUS CHARGES REFUTED AND DENIED

AUTHOR: Robert - (U.S.A.)

COMMERCIAL TERRORISM-BOGUS CHARGES DENIED AND REFUTED!!


An anonymous person, unwilling to identify himself, for fear of exposing his lies, has posted totally false, baseless, and libelous comments that will be dealt with in the most aggressive legal and ethical means available.

The facts are that there are a couple of possible sources for this unsuccessful attempt to disrupt a strong and prominent consulting group. We have, in fact, provided top shelf guidance, direction, insight and placement to over 1,000 professionals, over the last 36 months; while generating 12 complaints to the Better Business Bureau during the same period of time.

You do the math! We have been and remain members in good standing of the BBB and fully subscribe to and practice the policies they advocate in their Code of Ethics.

All 12 complaints have been resolved in favor of the Princeton Executive Group, including 3 of them being generated by people that we actually refused to take on as clients because of complex legal, moral or ethical issues in their past. Check it out for yourself @ www.bbb.org

Our contacts, data bases and networks are all proprietary information and our real-time web based software is state of the art. Our reputation in the executive search marketplace has long stood the test of time with tangible and quantifiable results.

Anonymous sits in a dark room, takes no responsibility for his actions or career results; goes through professional, financial, marital, and emotional self-inflicted upheaval and then points an accusatory finger at us and everyone else but himself.

The only scam evident here is this bogus complaint designed to malign a strong and successful company.

If Anonymous is in fact a real person and not a fabricated revenge tactic by a former employee of ours, recently fired for cause; I invite him to contact me directly and attempt to resolve any issues, perceived and/or real.

If this in fact is a real person, I invite him to file suit and ask the courts for a remedy. He doesn't need a lawyer, just a valid case, which he obviously does not have. I remain proud and confident that our past, present and future reputation will remain without tarnish, despite an occasional sniper round. I guarantee that no such actions will take place, because we are dealing with a challenged individual who remains hidden from the world and from the reality of his own dysfunctional universe.

sorry, allowing you to give a competitors name would instigate others to just file against their competition, to only come back later to suggest their company your comments on this policy are welcome!
