I worked at American Greetings full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Exposure to work with some really good knowledgeable people. Stable job environment if you are not ambitious.

Cons

Nepotism. Managers that are silo driven and not corporate driven. Employees with 20 years of company tenure are often purged due to pay scale and benefits. Some positions do not offer transferrable skill sets.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to show loyalty to long-term proven employees.

    I have been working at American Greetings full-time

    Pros

    Great location, ok salary, earned flexibility, weekly pay, extra off days for holidays.

    Cons

    The company aspires to be a Google of social expression products but in reality it is going in similar direction as Kodak Eastman.......
    The company is not managed properly. The business struggles because, management is close-minded. Directors, managers, supervisors do not always have the best interest of the company as their goal. Internal competition between departments is disrupting work flow. Employees are numbers not people. A lot of the business is being moved to China.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the culture of the company and never stop looking for other opportunities.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
