    I worked at American Greetings full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great people to work with, once the longevity was outstanding. They will be moving into a new corporate camous in the next couple of years that will provide a much better work location.

    Cons

    The workloads are heavy and there is little support. You will learn by doing, not by training. You will become a self started if you wish to succeed. The work force will continue to face downsizing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    you are out of touch with the true feelings and needs of the employees. The direction and the needs of the employees do not meet. The number of current employees activly looking for work elsewhere will be a shock to you.

    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.
