I have been working at American Greetings full-time for less than a year

Pros

Great (and Knowledgeable) Staff, Can wear Jeans, Open Source Code & Collaboration, Great Benefits, Starbucks, Break room (includes games & free soda), Need I say More?

Cons

Lack of Remote Working (not big on work from home), besides that...there are no downsides to this incredible company from the view I have of it!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

None! I'd love to see some more workspace flexibillity, but that is it! Everything else about this company is far beyond amazing.

    Line Design Intern

    I worked at American Greetings as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Interns are exposed to the wonderful world of greeting cards, including the process from creation to retail placement, and the joys of waiting some 1 to 2 years for it to show up in a store.

    Cons

    It's a family owned/family run business. Unless your last name is Weiss, you can forget taking over one day. Your working days are filled with long, and often unnecessary meetings. They like to meet to meet. They're Hallmark's competitor, so there's also a bit of "we're number 2" attitude; they're content where they are in the eyes of the consumer but that may be because it's next to impossible to outshine Hallmark.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend time getting to know the interns.
