    Pros

    Blowing up and making balloon bouquets is fun

    Cons

    The pay is very little. There is a chance to be promoted, yet no room for making much more money than you already are. Hours are crappy except for during Halloween time. Not very good to employees, except to managers.

    Advice to Management

    HELP OUT MORE! JUST BECAUSE YOUR "THE BOSS" DOESN'T MEAN YOU CAN'T GET ON A REGISTER OR HELP CUSTOMERS!

    Pros

    A company you can learn and grow in but the pay is rather low. A good place to get experience and then move on to something better.

    Cons

    Low pay with long hours and high expectations. No work/life balance for some positions. The morale there at times is rather low.

    Advice to Management

    Increase salaries for those who are deserving of it. Bring morale up.
