    Pros

    -good for graduate (get your one or two years of expérience and move on)
    - team events (you will be talked into going if you say no)
    - Team members aside from management are amazing to work with. They are nice and will become family and most even hang out after leaving here (Survivors who live to tell and end up at companies who value them)

    Cons

    - Favorites. There are many employees at this company who are the favorites. If your not one you dont have à chance.
    - Board of directors two brothers. They don't see eye to eye frequently also they have little expérience outside of this company. One of them micromanages, thé other sets unrealistic deadlines. I worked directly under one.
    -Your life must be only CWD. They are mindful of who leaves at 5 on thé dot. If you aren't willing to work late you won't succeed. Many meetings will be booked after 5 or you wont get à meeting. Most positions are salary too so you lose money. They designed It that way. Not à good company to work at If you have à family.
    - They steal ideas. Not innovative. If another company is doing It thats what they will do. Not okay with new ideas and won't give you space to make your own decisions. You will be micromanaged. You cannot move forward as they won't show up for meetings or respond to emails.
    - More Interested in how you format correspondance than thé information inside.
    - You are being watched more than any other place. How many times you go to bathroom, etc. Cameras throughout building. They love to spy and doubt everyone.
    -Wages and reviews: your wage will only go so far. I had à review 2 years late and they waited and waited and was let go with no backpay right before. I only stayed bécause even with only cost of living increase I would of had à large backpay. Your review is à low priority and they say you will get backpay but thats If they dont let you go or you quit first.

    Advice to Management

    Let it go let it go... Let your employee make their own décisions.

    Stop calling it à board of directors when clearly no one but family will hold that position.

    Did anyone else notice most reviews of current employee is in November 2014. Most likely HR pushing towards trying to improve image. Even this is micromanaged.

    I have been working at Circus World Displays full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    CWD is an excellent place to work. I've been at CWD for just under 2 years and report to one of the Managing Directors of the company.

    For anyone who reads these reviews on GlassDoor, I would highly recommend applying and seeing if CWD is a good fit for you.

    -Hire recent College/University Grads. This is encouraging to see.
    -Employer cares about the general well-being of the employees. Work/life balance and full use of vacation time encouraged.
    -Collaboration with fellow employees makes the creative process a lot easier.
    -Fun to go to work everyday knowing you're helping to create real world products that you might use in your everyday life.
    -Opinion is valued and your feedback is at the very least considered and taken seriously.
    -Marketing team is allowed to experiment and test ideas/concepts pretty freely. You're encouraged to get away from your desk.
    -Fun team events every few months with the cost fully covered by employer. Giveaways of products all the time.
    -Director is accommodating and understanding for personal issues that may require time off.
    -Director is incredibly down to earth despite success of the company - Approachable and encourages you to seek advice.

    Product Managers are very knowledgeable, Designers are talented, Marketing Team is creative and those that stick around here for 2+ years tend to fit in well to the culture of the workplace.

    Like any job, as an employee, it's important to leave your ego at the door. Being open to others opinions/experiences and not having a "know-it-all" attitude is an important factor for success at CWD. Stubbornness and Negativity do not fare well.

    Cons

    -Things are constantly changing here. You need to be very sharp and willing to move onto another project on a whim.
    -Due to growth and changes, sometimes following proper procedures can become overwhelming to follow.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to work towards growth of company and reward those who stick to the company road map
