    Cons

    1. Compensation - Low to Average range compensation. However, if you are great in your job you may get raise and promotion quite fast (1-2 years). 2. Extra Hours - Many salaried employees need to put in extra hours to cover up for open/vacant positions. No overtime payment for salaried employees. 3.

    Advice to Management

    1. Change the vision from "We believe all people should be empowered." to "We believe all people should feel empowered." The difference in "be" and "feel" is huge. It requires less judgement from our side, and asking question to the people for empowering them. 2. Move to Toronto area.

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

    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.
