I worked at American Greetings

Pros

You have a lot of independence. No one looks over your shoulder. There are some genuinely great managers and employees.

Cons

The business has taken a beating over the last 8-10 years and it seems like morale has fallen off a cliff. The senior management team is purely reactionary in an environment that calls for them to be more visionary. Middle and upper level management positions are primarily filled incestuously (friends promote friends) and often the people promoted are not remotely appropriate for their new position.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take the company private. Stop worrying about the whims of Wall Street. Remove all family members from daily business operations (except Zev). And be willing to take a risk. Do something really exciting and different. The talent is there, trust them.
