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

Pros

-There has been an exodus of managers leaving, but the ones that remain are great

Cons

- Owners do not trust employees on the duties they were hired for
- Goals of departments are unrealistic, bonuses are promised during the interview but the unrealistic goals are not mentioned
- Compensation is low and always stays below inflation. Compensation will only go up in small increments even if performance is considered "Great".
- Work hours are not ideal
- They claim to have work/life balance, but you will have to make up time if you go for a doctors appointment or have to go take care of your kids
- Two brothers run the company, don't get along with anything. This causes a rift between departments and employees.
- Products are mostly 1 to 1.5 years behind the market trend

Advice to Management

- Follow up on your promises and invest in employees. Do not just do the bare minimum. Do not confuse regular humane working conditions as "good work life balance"
- Reward your employees with financial compensation not "Corporate events"
- Consider being a union.
