This is not saying that the pressure is negative. The negative is in this equation because if the volume of the system is compressed, delta V (which is Vf-Vi) will be a negative value. This negative value of delta V and the negative value in the equation will become positive since two negatives become a positive. This makes the work value positive, which makes sense because the system is being compressed so work is being done on the system.
