    I have been working at Circus World Displays full-time (Less 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.


  2. "Not a Good Workplace to Develop Your Career"

    I have been working at Circus World Displays (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Good education fund.
    - Good and friendly co-workers.
    - Employee discounts are good.

    Cons

    - Extremely low compensation. I have been here for almost 5 years and got promoted once, yet my salary has barely risen to be noticeable due to the huge rise in the cost of living. Take the median job salary on Payscale.com and minus 5-10k.
    - The owner(s) of the company have trust issues in their employees.
    - Bonuses are promised on interview but goals are kept secret. Goals are completely unrealistic. Expect to only reach 40-60% of your goal year after year.
    - The company always toutes the Dale Carnegie rules and learnings but it becomes clear when it comes to rewarding employees, they throw those concepts out the window.
    - Poor work life balance. Have to make up time when missed for appointments. Company says they have great work life balance because the business is not open on the weekend.
    - Very Political. Any inquiry you have about an issue, it gets addressed very broadly and you are told to refer to your manager for more details. Truth be told, managers know about the same as employees.
    - Frustrated managers because of company expectations trickles down to employees.
    - Building in need of a serious make-over and update

    Advice to Management

    - If you truly care about your employees. You will reward them with fair compensation. They are not a means to your end. The cost of living is rising and we are feeling the sting.
    - Please make corporate goals realistic
    - Update the building. Looking and beige and dirty white walls all day is excruciating .
    - Be nice to your employees and genuinely act interested in them.
