    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Amscan full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Fun and interesting product lines to work on, and the ability to work on a variety of project types. Good place to enter the design field and get a few years of experience before moving on.

    Cons

    Average pay salary is low. Unless you are a manager +, you probably won't make enough to live nearby, and commuting in the area is terrible. Expect to only stay at the level you are hired at, and to be held to unrealistic deadlines. Departments turn over completely every couple of years.

    Advice to Management

    Cultivate employee loyalty, seek talented individuals and then try to retain those individuals.

    I have been working at Amscan full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    A fun working environment with challenges and new business opportunities.

    Cons

    Business opportunities do not often translate to personal success and compensation.

    Advice to Management

    See above - compensate your good workers better instead of being fiscally conservative about everything.
