    I have been working at American Greetings full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    very nice people and coworkers, excellent opportunity to develop your skills, fun workshops, Starbucks in the building, free art supply store, overtime work is rare.

    Cons

    hirer-ups and people making art decisions are clueless, rather then let go of toxic employees company just moves them around, many employees have been there for 30+ years which can be a bad thing if they haven't kept up with industry skills and knowledge.

    Advice to Management

    Place more emphasis on building a stronger product and less on producing large numbers of production, spend more money on advertising and name recognition to build brand
