  1. "This is Circa NEWS - The website link is for Circa JEWELRY. Did no one notice???"

    Pros

    I do not work here but there is an error on this glass door page. This is a profile for Circa News, not the jewelry company. All the reviews are reflective of the jewelry company not the media organization. Might be a good idea to fix this as soon as possible.

    Cons

    Fix the error on this page. (had to give this a rating in order to post. I've never worked here and just gave it a three stars average to be able to post to let glass door know of the error on the page.)

    Pros

    This is a great place for education of the secondary market if you can get over the shame of making mistakes. They ride you hard if you do make a mistake.

    Cons

    The PE firm does not know what they are doing. They made decisions that have put the company in peril. They should have put the old CEO in jail.

    -Free lunch everyday.
    -Want to go to work because you enjoy your colleagues presence.

    Your pay check will clear

    Cons

    6 day, 60 hour work week

    The company will match your 401K with 1%. - You save $6,000 and they will give you $60.
    Bullying as a formal way of getting business done
    You can and will be fired at any time

    Advice to Management

    Get some formal training in time management, office etiquette, problem solution, communication, to name a a few areas.
    Stop bullying.
