Ok employer for a huge corporation.

ProsAmerican Greetings is the largest employer in my field in my home town. It's basically the holy grail if you get in.

ConsLeadership stays in the family. Stock price more important than quality and integrity of product. Questionable financial decisions at WHQ, like the new park and recent major remodeling. There are too many levels of buracracy to sift through to get things done. Major projects take years to implement, during which time technology and the rest of the world moves forward.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Senior management is overpaid as they are brought in… Advice to Senior Management: To many unqualified managers and too little people to do… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
