    I have been working at Circus World Displays full-time for more than 4 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...

    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.

    Pros

    Great opportunity for recent graduates to gain real experience in a fast paced environment. 815 to 5 with weekends off and a good benefits package. Lots of opportunity to grow within the company. If looking for a job in Niagara this is your bet. Annual performance reviews give you an idea of where you stand in the company as well as a pay increase. Often completed late, but back pay is given for every day missed....

    Cons

    Very fast paced. Not everyone can handle it. Those who can't are let go (or quit shortly after being brought on) Productivity is taken very seriously. If you need time for facebook and personal email while you are supposed to be working this job is not for you. Pay is competitive, but sometimes managements expectations seem higher than your salary. Constant change and high turnover can make things difficult at times.

    Advice to Management

    Cooontinue working towards keeping happy employees.
