Current Employee - American Greetings Contractor in Cleveland, OH

Approves of CEO

Pros

Flexible hours
no micromanagement, to a point
pay is decent
some really sharp/talented co-workers
everyone is likable for the most part
great work/life balance
easy commute, as long as you live on the west side

Cons

- management is severely inconsistent in it's practices and attitude
- sometimes you will run across an extremely effective manager, and sometimes the polar opposite, it depends on who walks through the door that day
- impractical deadlines bordering on the impossible if you don't manage them yourself and possess the forethought to start work on something before it comes to managements attention
- there is very little information sharing between departments, no one plays for the same team at AG

Advice to Management

- promote communication between departments and teams within departments
- recognize talent when you see it and work to cultivate that talent
- properly train your managers to manage, and be consistent about it
- recognize problem employees, work to correct their behavior, or fire them and replace them. There is way to much dead weight at American Greetings.
