    I have been working at Circus World Displays full-time

    Pros

    Location is reasonable and easily accessible, environment is appropriate. Colleagues are very friendly and easily approachable once you get to know them. Products are within reach in case you need hands on while dealing with a customer so that's a plus. Tools are up to par, enough to be able to do the work that is assigned. I can certainly see the "family" like qualities of the team and its nice to work with constant environment and shifts.

    Cons

    Disorganized in procedures, there are written processes but there are a lot of if, ands or buts. Each person may have their own version of how to do a task based on who mentored them so it can be a little confusing. Coming from an informal background, it is tricky to adjust. There are high expectations which are understandable but not so much when you're just starting with the company and with dealing with multiple products. Training is lengthy but disorganized as well. A lot of "we'll tackle it on the floor" or "I'll provide the printouts later" that come up again when you're literally on the floor and starting to do the work. I don't have complaints on it as usually the answers can be easily found once you are doing the work and getting used to, and it is understandable since it is a growing company. Current processes aren't bad but can be improved.

    Advice to Management

    The direction you are going is nice as well as the pace, the goal that you want to reach is commendable. You have picked the best of the best and that is seen in your team but don't loose sight of some of the basics as well.

    Pros

    Nothing, some co-workers are nice

    Cons

    Bad management, micro management, slave mentality, policies change all the time, you get in trouble for little stupid things, you start as a contract and they will just use you. The board of directors are mommy, daddy and the two sons. What a joke! Comisions are really low, they chase you for sales and you make peanuts out of the sale, they get rid of people from one day to another.

    Advice to Management

    Change your mentality, don't take advantage of people, don't be mean, be a leader not a boss, take care of your employees.

    Education funded, amazing team, amazing boss, and higher boss, Always room for improving team, self, and design expertise. Great work flow, really interested in the employees satisfaction with their jobs, and their health.

    Cons

    tight deadlines, completed designs may be rejected to the beginning process (Which is a normal thing in the design industry), strange requests (Which is a normal thing in the design industry), sometimes you need to sell why you design what you did, and explain why and how it will help the sales (This is kinda of fun, but some people don't like it)

    Advice to Management

    Keep up what you are doing in the design team, and implement it throughout the company (Which you are)
