Territory Account Manager (Current Employee) – Latham, NY – August 29, 2018
There are no opportunities for advancement. Management does not communicate internally if there are positions available you have to find them on job posting sites. They do not promote from within. Lack of good benefits, after 5 years they only offer a day per year rather than a week like most other companies.
Healthcare benefits, Vacation time, ability to advance, no communication of positions available within the company
Headquarter Employee (Former Employee) – Latham, NY – July 26, 2018
No career advancement. No job security, firings happen weekly. Compensation was at the distacretion of the owner who you did not interact with unless you were getting your hand slapped. Some department leaders were extremely unprofessional and did not know what they were doing.
Co- workers, comfortable chairs
Disorganization, unprofessional management, old systems
BI/IT (Former Employee) – Latham, NY – May 3, 2018
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.
Territory Account Mgr, Custom Order Rep (Former Employee) – Latham, NY – April 16, 2018
PIP is a company that continues to grow. However i had reached a maximum level of job advancement. Hardest part of the job was the extremely busy and hectic work load. The best part of the job was the fellow co-workers I had worked with over the years.

Receptionist (Former Employee) – Rancho Cucamonga, CA – September 8, 2016
A typical day at PIP would include answering phones and gathering data for distribution to management. I learned a lot about how specific departments work separately and the significance of how all the separate parts come together for one complete project. Management made a big deal about collaboration and how efficient communication can help separate teams reach a common goal. My co-workers were always upbeat and busy which inspired me to work harder. The hardest part of this job was processing the volume of incoming data. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to work with other teams and eating lots of pizza during our meetings.
PPE Specialist (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – February 4, 2014
I had 14 guys working for me. We called on mainly refineries. My main lesson was people skills. Management was great. I was my own boss and was pretty much left alone. I covered 6 states and was responsible for 14 peers. I had total support from all my coworkers. Catching planes on time seemed to be one of my toughest challenges. Again, winning a big contract fro a competitor seemed to be my biggest joy.....
Winning new yearly contracts
6 states and 14 peoples different attitudes seemed to be the biggest challenge
