    I worked at Circus World Displays full-time for less 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...

    Advice to Management

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

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

    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.

    I have been working at Circus World Displays

    Pros

    There are many different positions so there is the ability to start in an entry level and work up. The company believes in internal promotion and allows applicants to come from different departments. As the company is rapidly growing there is room for employees to grow with it. Staff are very friendly and helpful for the most part which makes for a comfortable working situation. Since the company is growing rapidly,...

    Cons

    Fast paced atmosphere may not be desirable by some people. It is a family owned company so sometimes you need to deal with conflicting requests by management. The rapid growth sometimes means people need to think on their feet as there may not be procedures in place for everything that comes up. This can be a positive for some as it keeps things interesting but can also frustrate...
