    Working a very physical job that provides only seasonal employment.

    I have been working at American Greetings

    Pros

    It's one of the top paying factories in my county. We have a company paid union pension which makes retirement possible. Associates get along well and form strong bonds. In general the supervisors are good people and take up for their people.

    Cons

    Very skilled employees are laid off 3 to 4 months of the year, without insurance coverage when laid off. Almost no chance of promotion, regardless of skill or education. Entry level managers are usually friends and/or family of upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a good look at the people available on the floor before choosing supervisors.

    I have been working at American Greetings

    Pros

    I work with so many great people. There are few place in northeast Ohio packed with so many great minds to collaborate with.

    Cons

    The downside is that as a subsidiary of a major public company, we have the politics of a major public company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Personal agendas and perceptions get in the way of real progress all too often. Assumptions about how ideas have been implemented in the past affect current perceptions too greatly without enough consideration of how the idea is being recast.
