I enjoyed my time with PIP for the most part. I was able to learn great skills at that job and have turned those skills into a career and for that, I'm grateful.
What I didn't like is that after years of acquired skills and experience, doing the jobs of 4 different roles at any other company, PIP acted like they were rewarding me by paying me $25K below market value for my position.
I'd say, if you're related to or friends with the owners, there is great opportunity for advancement and fair pay. If you aren't related to or friends with the owners, there is very little opportunity for advancement or fair pay...so if you intend to pursue an actual career as opposed to just working a job, PIP will probably be a temporary employer...a good place to learn before moving on.
co-workers were nice people
