    Great company that puts employees above everything else

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Skokie, IL

    Pros- Freedom to grow. You can start on the bottom and one day end up leading Hallmark.
    - Management is very considerate of personal life
    - Ability to learn and try anything you can as long as you make sure required work is done
    - Location was recently renovated and it feels great; new hardware, furniture, meeting areas (and available to all employees, not just management)

    ConsSmall company, therefore you might be the only expert in a specific field (better know your stuff!)

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Exciting to build something

    Solutions Consultant (Current Employee) Skokie, IL

    ProsHallmark Data Systems is going through a paradigm shift. What used to be just a subscription fulfillment company is now branching out to include a marketing database, email marketing and an easy-to-use form builder. In the past two years upper management has made it a point to grow Hallmark out to keep up with the times and to deliver state of the art solutions to integrate with the subscription fulfillment base. Senior management is involved with the teams and their doors are always open. As a younger employee it's been great to know that I have the ear and support of high-level members.

    Since the products are continually being built out, employees are encouraged to be innovative and strategically minded. There is a good mix of employees who have been with Hallmark for over 10 years, as well as newer employees who bring a different background to the table. Most of the time it allows for creative thinking focused around the client.

    Hallmark promotes a good work/life balance. The vacation and personal time is generous, and regular hours are observed. Many employees work more than 40 hours a week, but it's not frowned upon if you don't work 60.

    ConsThe office is unfortunately not in the city, making it difficult for public transport and the office was converted from a warehouse, so it's not the most inspiring work space. Some employees who are more tenured are less eager about changes made to the company. The culture at Hallmark is a little vague.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to stay involved with the teams and reward employees based on merit.

    Great company, great opportunity.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Skokie, IL

    ProsHallmark is a changing company with an excellent opportunity for growth. Work-life balance is major plus at Hallmark. Pay and benefits are above average. Management provides excellent leadership and is communicating more with employees on a daily basis. Additionally, the innovation and changing environment at Hallmark gives the company a strong team-oriented culture and makes for an overall positive environment to work in. Working at Hallmark is similar to a fun start-up culture, but with a stable long-term brand to back it up.

    ConsHallmark services a changing industry. As the industry changes, Hallmark's business is impacted. These business impacts are certainly difficult, but the Hallmark team is responding to them pro-actively and positively.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep it up. Keep moving fast and responding to customer needs. Keep hiring vibrant, committed employees to grow this company.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
