    Pros

    DaySpring is an awesome place to work if faith at work is important to you. It's a Christian company where the things they say and talk about are actually lived out on a daily basis.

    Cons

    It's no secret that the greeting card industry isn't exactly thriving these days, but DaySpring is doing some interesting new things in other markets to expand their mission of expressing God's heart within the marketplace.

    Continue to stay strong in the vision and heart of DaySpring. And do all you can to keep people employed during these rough times. Thank you for all my 5+ years at DaySpring.

    Pros

    DaySpring is made up of great people who have a great heart. They are struggling financially at this point so the future is uncertain with their niche market.

    Cons

    The parent company Hallmark Cards is not setting them up for success.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to your core values.

    Great leadership from the top down. A company with a heart for it's employees. A fair salary and great benefits.

    I worked at DaySpring Cards full-time

    Pros

    Well... the PTO is great, and there are some nice people working there. Employee sales and discounts were also a plus.

    Cons

    Unpredictable work schedules. Cliques were awful. Temp workers were sometimes unnecessarily mistreated by these cliques. Often felt a lot more like high school than a workplace full of "Christian" adults. Management didn't like dealing with major issues that affected productivity. They also tended to get way too close to some of their subordinates and ultimately played favorites. There existed an "us against them" mentality not only between the creative and distribution departments, but within specific teams even. Made for a hostile environment at times. Employee suggestions are also asked for but rarely implemented or even given a chance. Little room for advancement unless you make friends with the right people.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of your gossipy, sneaky, well-known and frequently reported trouble makers who are often the common denominator in many conflicts and you'll stop losing good employees and morale would be higher for those who remain. It's killing your productivity numbers. Output is greater when people look forward to coming to work. And don't ask for your employees' input if you are only going to ignore it every time it's offered.

    I have been working at DaySpring Cards part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fellow employees are nice and caring.

    Cons

    DaySpring is currently restructuring internally. They are eliminating positions and placing a larger workload upon those who are left. They play favoritism and they lack any real discipline. It has become a frustrating environment to be in.
