    I worked at Herff Jones full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Creating yearbooks is a fun, happy and meaningful thing for a company to specialize in. I feel lucky that I had the opportunity to be a part of that. The people are great, working atmosphere is really pleasant and exciting.

    Cons

    There are some strict corporate policies but nothing unusual or overly harsh.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes it was unclear to me what I could do to improve my job performance. I would have appreciated and possibly benefited from more communication with my supervisor.
