I worked at American Greetings

Pros

Flexibility in servicing accounts schedule and easy to balance work and home life. Great people to work with when servicing team projects.

Cons

Pay is very supplemental and more conducive to mothers and students just looking for a little extra disposable income. Even if you can manage to service enough accounts to constitute full time hours the pay is not likely to be very high.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

As a National provider of paper based products I am honestly surprised that you do not have your own sister company to recycle the after season products that have not sold-you are in one of the few industries who could actually recoup money on your losses instead of filling landfills. To clarify-in spite of company attempts to recycle in the larger big box stores, alot of unsold product just gets thrown away when the season is over.

    Challenging environment; flexible; ability to interface with different departments; great people who care about the business, the customers and the employees; upper management aware of the deficiencies and working to improve;

    often the goals are unrealistic and not based on solid data; sometimes the data is made up to support senior management direction; not enough research before new initiatives or it is non-substantiated; inconsistency in management direction between key managers; inadequate tools and systems to meet the goals consistently

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get involved and find out what is really happening in the market, the departments and the field; react quicker to the need for technological needs.; streamline upper management.
