    I have been working at Circus World Displays full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Benefits for full time employees, established company, paid training and courses, company events a few times a year.

    Cons

    Micromanagement to a level that completely cripples the company's ability to do anything. No empowerment at all. Leadership does not lead by example (do what I say don't do what I do). Reviews are not done on time, some people have gone more than 2 years without a performance review or a cost of living increase let alone an actual raise. Lots of turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees! Don't ask for their opinions and then be surprised when they are unhappy that you completely disregard what they have said. Bring your salaries up to at least average for comparable roles. Give staff the opportunity to develop, you can't grow into a leadership role if you have no ability to make a decision.

    I have been working at Circus World Displays

    Pros

    - Full time work (unlike all the seasonal jobs you find in Niagara Falls) - Benefits - No employers have to offer them and many don't. This was a huge plus for me. - Learning opportunity - I have learned so much overall - Family (and yes I said family) The people that work here genuinely care about one another. I LOVE my team and there is nothing I wouldn't do to help them, work or personal. - BOD's - No one seems...

    Cons

    - People leave and the departments are told you just need to prioritize tasks. We don't need more people we need a better way of doing things. This may be true in some aspects but when your team goes from 10 people to 5 you can only prioritize things so much until tasks are missed. Then we are looked down upon and put on corrective action plans. If we were not doing the work of 3 people our results would be better. -There...

    Cons

    - Company is lead by 2 managing directors who may not always be on the same page all the time. This can cause some bottlenecks in projects. Adapting to both different managing styles can also be a challenge, as their pace and processes are very different. - management needs to have a bit more authority to make decisions

    Advice to Management

    - Have a little more trust in your employees to make decisions that will better the company and products - Keep investing in employees professional development SIDE NOTE: Most of the negative reviews are from former employees for a reason. Also we were encouraged to write HONEST reviews. No one is forced to do anything. I stand by review! This is a great company to work for in a great area.

    Pros

    CWD is a fantastic company to work for. When I started this job, I was coming from a completely different field. Although my experience with this kind of job was minimal, it did not take long pick up as the training was fantastic. The entire team was more than willing to accept me with open arms, and were quick to answer any questions I had. There are constantly company events and catered lunches to show the employees...

    Cons

    I can honestly say that I am yet to find a downfall of working for CWD.

    Growing pains: Company is running on very lean staffing. Stress can often be high in the wake of a fast paced and ever-growing/ever changing environment. Days can be long, and pressure can be high at times.

    Pros

    Its a cool place to work. Nothing majorly negative about the place. If you are good at what you do, you get appreciated. There is a conscious effort to build an excellent team. The workers around are all knowledgeable at what they do and the passion about their work is there to see. Though company events happen at the same places year in year out, they are fun times. Its is a good place to get work experience if you are...

    Cons

    At the end of the day, this is a family owned business so the owners do what they like and they have the final say at the end of the day. Not much to do about that. Everything is micro managed and that at times delay decision making. Once you get used to that, it doesn't become a con but a norm.

    Advice to Management

    Company is growing really fast and so maybe managers should be given some increased level of autonomy with decision making and responsibility for the outcomes of those decisions.

    Cons

    Not cons, things to consider: - Face paced: team members must be adaptable, flexible, open minded, organized, manage & prioritize tasks - Be ready to work, show your value and contribute. No person here floats. - You can make a difference at this company if you try. You do need to put an effort in and give solutions, instead of complain. - Do not expect to come out of college/university and make the amount an experienced...

    Advice to Management

    - Keep on the path of investing in your employees and making CWD a social place. - Get rid of silly rules that make people grumble like coffee before 10am. Leave that with their managers. - Make sure everywhere has an understanding of where we are are going as a company and why. Invite them to share in that vision. - I suggest sprucing the buildings up a bit more
