    I worked at Circus World Displays as a contractor

    Pros

    The corporate culture is great at CWD. Everyone that I met and had the chance to work with during my time at CWD was great and extremely helpful. The company in general implements many initiates to promote team building experiences and events/company gathering during and outside of scheduled work hours.

    I feel like managers and supervisors have a lot of confidence in their employees and give them freedom to do and complete their work at their own pace which is great. Micro-management definitely isn't a problem within the company.

    Cons

    High turnaround of employees can impede business operations
    work/life balance could improve, especially with many company's recently moving to more initiatives supporting flexible hours, working from home, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Flexible work hours could be beneficial and more communication between departments and management.

    Pros

    Overall a great place to work where the corporate culture is positive and employees are focused on bringing success to all aspects of the company.

    - They promote from within
    - Great work life balance
    - Really cool products
    - Focused on growth for the company and for employees
    - Good facilities/building management

    Cons

    - Horizontal Organizational Structure can led to delays in decision making

    Hard to find other constructive criticism. The company has worked hard to address any employee concerns and are always willing to receive suggestions for improvement.

    Advice to Management

    Provide managers with more decision making authority to improve efficiency and increase productivity.
    Continue to be employee focused and work on sustainable growth.

    I worked at Circus World Displays full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - On boarding process is great. HR team is friendly and helpful
    - Clear (but partially failing) efforts by entire company to improve corporate culture
    - Dynamic workplace

    Cons

    - The major problem with the company relates to senior maagement. From my point of view, it seems like those members want to manage nearly every aspect of business and are clearly burning out - apparent through sometimes short tempers. While corporate strategy is top of mind, these members are often more worried about microscopic details causing an overwhelming amount of grief for all levels of employees
    - Constant 'Fire' management
    - Turnover in all departments
    - "Big Brother" culture. Surveillance cameras are throughout entire company and employees closely monitored
    - Pay

    Advice to Management

    Advice to potential employees: It's a great place to start a career, but you'll have to put up with a lot of headache. A few weeks/months into your role, you'll start to question why you're working at CWD and if it's worth it, because you begin to feel like a dog - just taking orders and following through.
