I have been working at Circus World Displays full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Company is growing and if successful can have large impact and grow within the company. People there are great. Focused on culture, provide rewards and corporate lunches once a month. Safe and clean environment.

Cons

Turnover is an issue. High expectations. Compensation package could improve with regards to vacation, lieu time and pay at some levels. It has been improving but recent contracts removed lieu time which means if you work 60 hour week, no compensation or time off but instead built into your pay.

Advice to Management

I think all companies can benefit from valuing their employees more. This is something that would help CWD with the turnover and retention issues. The focus has always been growing the business and I believe that is obviously more important but to take the company to the next level we need more focus on the value of employees.

    Will hire on with a contract position for a specific role, but then request that you do things outside of your job description.

    Constant pressure to write Glassdoor reviews.

    Only allowed 3 sick days before you are considered a risk and they start building a case against you.

    Lack of "on job" training for various positions.

    Management is not held accountable for their poor actions that affect the entire department.

    Yearly assessments, for raises, are sometimes considerably late (up to one year late).

    Requested to complete various tasks without information, training, or guidance on how to do it, then reprimanded when it is not the way they expected it.

    CEOs do not get along, which causes tension and clashing of ideas and departments.

    Departments often suffer from lack of communication with each other.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiding things from some employees, but telling others - they're going to find out either way.

    Stop making employees worry about their job by saying "don't worry, your job isn't at risk" over and over

    Stop making comments about the weight of employees and telling them they need to make healthier life decisions

    Stop making people feel bad for using GOVERNMENT ISSUED sick days

    Start taking action on HR complaints
