I have been working at American Greetings full-time for less than a year

Pros

Great (and Knowledgeable) Staff, Can wear Jeans, Open Source Code & Collaboration, Great Benefits, Starbucks, Break room (includes games & free soda), Need I say More?

Cons

Lack of Remote Working (not big on work from home), besides that...there are no downsides to this incredible company from the view I have of it!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

None! I'd love to see some more workspace flexibillity, but that is it! Everything else about this company is far beyond amazing.

    I have been working at American Greetings full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The Benifits and pay used to be good for management personnel.
    Hours in the field used to be flexible that you could start your day anytime in the morning.

    Cons

    The company is looking to do everything on the cheap. Pay for new people. There are also are cutting personnel in all areas and increase work load up to 30%. People have gone from 50 to 60 plus hours a week. Senior personnel are being shown the door because of salaries. You are told you just do not fit the model any more. They can say it to anyone because expectation are set extremely high with not enough tools or help to get the job done. This is being done to people that have 10-30 years of service.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Will the last one to leave shut off the lights.

    I worked at American Greetings full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    My division was very casual, I could wear jeans every day, and we had free soda.

    Cons

    They are very fickle about who they value as employees.
