    I worked at Circus World Displays full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Some great people work here.

    Cons

    Worst company and worst employer I've ever worked for. The business is family owned and the brothers can't seem to agree on anything. The tension is palpable whenever they're together and it makes for very awkward meetings. The older brother is extremely socially awkward, dishonest, and is completely out of touch with the real world. He micromanages to an extreme, sets unachievable goals and expectations, and has...

    Advice to Management

    Trust your staff, appreciate them more, treat them better, and let go of the reins sometimes.

    Pros

    CWD has been growing and getting better with each year. Their investment in employees with paying for learning opportunities courses etc. allows people to work towards their own advancement. This company is for you if you are willing to work hard, can adapt quickly in growing environment, enjoy new challenges and learning opportunities and are ambitious and want to grow. No employer is perfect but here they learn from...

    Cons

    It is a growing company which means some decisions aren't necessarily right and made too quickly without thinking things through. Also things that impact employees directly sometimes take longer to change like giving more vacation weeks etc.

    Advice to Management

    You've made great improvements in last few years. Continue to listening to your employees and what's most important to them.

    Pros

    Full time employment in area Good co-workers If you love structure - this is the place for you

    Cons

    Like any review read the good and the bad. There are legitimate ones on both ends. Be aware that management strongly pressures employees to write reviews here. Many will obviously write positive reviews about their current workplace. Management will constantly harass you to write a review until you say you wrote one. I would not recommend working here. It saddens me to say that because I would want the best hires...

    Advice to Management

    Provide more of a work life balance to your employees. For many people this place is a job, and they are not as personally invested as you are (you don't give them a reason to be invested)

    I have been working at Circus World Displays full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Company is growing and if successful can have large impact and grow within the company. People there are great. Focused on culture, provide rewards and corporate lunches once a month. Safe and clean environment.

    Cons

    Turnover is an issue. High expectations. Compensation package could improve with regards to vacation, lieu time and pay at some levels. It has been improving but recent contracts removed lieu time which means if you work 60 hour week, no compensation or time off but instead built into your pay.

    Advice to Management

    I think all companies can benefit from valuing their employees more. This is something that would help CWD with the turnover and retention issues. The focus has always been growing the business and I believe that is obviously more important but to take the company to the next level we need more focus on the value of employees.

    Pros

    Offers benefits Pays more than minimum wage 40 hrs/week 3rd party training cost reimbursements Great co-workers

    Cons

    Will hire on with a contract position for a specific role, but then request that you do things outside of your job description. Constant pressure to write Glassdoor reviews. Only allowed 3 sick days before you are considered a risk and they start building a case against you. Lack of "on job" training for various positions. Management is not held accountable for their poor actions that affect the entire department....

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiding things from some employees, but telling others - they're going to find out either way. Stop making employees worry about their job by saying "don't worry, your job isn't at risk" over and over Stop making comments about the weight of employees and telling them they need to make healthier life decisions Stop making people feel bad for using GOVERNMENT ISSUED sick days Start taking action on HR...

    Pros

    CWD values an employees opinion and goes to great lengths to keep its staff happy. There are many team building events throughout the year that allow you to talk with people working in other departments you wouldn't normally see every day.

    Cons

    Communication between departments could be improved to help the company run more efficiently.
