I worked at American Greetings

Pros

Recognition for accomplishments and goals reached from upper management and department heads. Excellent benefits package and a fair salary for a National Account Manager.

Cons

Slow to move on decision making relating to account management and sales related activities. Layoffs were always a concern toward the end of fiscal year.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat employees more like family and less like a number, lose to GE mentality of cutting the bottom 10% each year.

    Pros

    The pay is good and there are some manages that are very good at what they do.
    The onsight resturant is amazing!

    Cons

    Upper management is not understanding working families.
    During their performance review process they have a policy that 10% of all employees are put on a performance improvement plan. It's pretty miserable working with that 10% who didn't get raises and don't understand why.
    Hours are long and often the expectations are not realistic
    Work in a silo, no communication or interaction between departments that should be working collaboratively.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You offer tunition reimbursement to those seeking an MBA, however you are not creating an enviroment that is flexible to allow people to leave by 5 once a week if they are in class.
