    I worked at Promotion In Motion full-time

    Pros

    Decent benefits, free lunch on summer fridays, summer hours, free candy

    Cons

    I worked for the worst manager ever. Lots of nepotism. Absolutely no place for growth and development of smart and hardworking employees. Management is chauvinistic, arrogant and no respect or fair treatment of the employees. If you want to grow with the company in a honest way then PIM is not the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Remove the dumb and lazy. Retain the smart and hardworking.

    Pros

    There is a good pizza place down the road. other than that there are no pros at all

    Cons

    At one time it was a good and fun place to work. present upper management and hr is extremely unproffesional. they use intimidation tactics to scare people. if you cannot be intimidated they will fire you sometimes without reason no matter how long you have been there or how good you are at your job. Recruiters do not want to deal with the company because of their reputation.

    Advice to Management

    Attn vp and dir of hr: Resign. That way real management can be hired and the company can go back to not sucking like it was before you were there. Also, try to treat the people that are actually running and keeping the company running with respect.

    Pros

    There are a few people that really care and are great to work with. The work is not difficult just not well distributed.

    Cons

    It is not a fun place to go to. No employee development and team building. It is a negative environment to be in and there is no teamwork.

    Advice to Management

    Less negativity and appreciate the people that work hard for the company. Bring a consultant to improve leadership and stop putting people against each other.

    I worked at Promotion In Motion full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None, except free candy which is not very good at all.

    Cons

    Too many to list. Cheap ingredients, and a terrible manufacturing process. Scary this candy is mainly for kids....The benefits are terrible, and the compensation does not make up for the treatment of employees. Many illegals and ex cons. The style of management is intimidation, and they threaten to fire you almost daily. HR is no help, they are enablers.

    Advice to Management

    Treat Middle Level Managers with respect, they are driving your organization. Fire all senior management especially HR and OPS. Hire some skilled technicians and lose the intimidation factor.

    Pros

    NONE this place is full of broken promises, intimidation, and a stressful work enviornment. This is a perfect place if you want to be threatened to be fired daily.

    Cons

    EVERYTHING. Steer clear of this place unless it is a quick stop in your career. The reason you have such a high turnaround here is the intimidation that management uses to control its managers

    Advice to Management

    Get a grip and stop lying to your employees. The 1950's style intimidation you use is the reason for the 70% plus turnover in management.

    Pros

    Not really to many pros. A few good line staff and middle managers there.

    Cons

    Sinior management treat everyone like a piece of meat. Big time micromanagement with low leadership abilities and even less insight. Stay very far away from PIM Brands...!

    Advice to Management

    Fire all senior management level staff and start treating the people who make you look good better.

    Pros

    Some people are friendly. Office hour is decent.

    Cons

    Low Salary. Low benifit. Many political things there, and the company doesn't care about employee at all. Many people just came here for only few days or even few hours then left. Almoist every employee here is thinking about to quit!

    Advice to Management

    Less politc.

    I have been working at Promotion In Motion full-time

    Pros

    I have been with this company for the past 22 years and looking forward to the next 22 years. I have been extremely fortunate to watch this company develop and grow from a small sales and marketing outfit to one of the largest and fastest growing confectionery companies in the US. The management team is extremely knowledgeable and the ownership treats its employees like family. I consider myself very fortunate to have been part of this organization for so long.

    Cons

    The only change I would make is have the sales offices move to Florida! I am not a fan of winters in the northeast.
