I worked at Party City full-time (more than a year)

Pros

**I worked in headquarters and these are my experiences:
-Friendly environment
-SUPER Fun company culture: Party City had lots of team building activities throughout the year. They really try to stay true to their "party" mission

Cons

**I worked in headquarters and these are my experiences:
-Not much room for career advancement
-Some of the directors/managers do not discipline managers who need it (ie: had a boss who was very tyrannical and verbally threatened someone. Discipline for her threats were not imposed)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Managers need to be assessed by their staff as they are the ones who work extremely close with the manager. Directors and Executives of the Party City HQ should intervene if they get enough information about an unethical manager. In my department, with all of us employees combined, there was enough proof to have a manager rightfully fired. Actually, we even had proof of threats! It took a new director hired within the company to take action towards this specific manager.
