    I have been working at Czarnowski

    Pros

    Large secure company with average benefits. Committed to succeed in a very busy event industry. They consider all employees as family and look out for each other.

    Cons

    Large company not communicating correctly. Union labor force creates slow days. Competition between branches cause some tension on installs.

    Advice to Management

    Major overspending on labor, hotels etc. Too many staff riding the easy train enjoying travel perks and flexible managing of departments

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Czarnowski full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    The environment is clean and friendly. The pay is average but the working hours are unrealistic. There are times when the entire dept of 15 people or more are all working well over 80 hours a week.

    Cons

    The working hours are unrealistic. There are times when the entire dept of 15 people or more are all working well over 80 hours a week. Deadlines are very short turn around time and the detail is critical.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more staff and let existing employees work from home when hours exceed the normal work week.

    I worked at Czarnowski full-time

    Pros

    This company can be a lot of fun. The events and parties and branded goodies are nice. It is also so much fun getting to be a part of a team that creates beautiful things. If you can get past the cons, it is not a bad place to work.

    Cons

    The upper management of the LV branch tends to hire girlfriends, kids, friends of their kids, the people their kids have slept with... You get the picture. It is a bit of a nepotism factory. They get all the best opportunities. They all go on vacations together, leaving out anyone else.

    Advice to Management

    Try hiring outside of your safe zone.

      I worked at Czarnowski full-time

      Pros

      There are a few nice people there just trying to make a living

      Cons

      People in leadership roles are only concerned about their pocketbook. There is a a lot of playing favorites and if you get on the wrong persons bad side, no matter how hard you work, you better start looking for another job, your days are numbered.

      I have been working at Czarnowski full-time for more than 20 years

      Pros

      Large enough to handle any size client or project. Small enough to CARE about every employee, client and project. Very experienced to handle any concern. Wide range of very talented employees.

      Cons

      They have the typical growing pains that come with a successful company. Labor rates are a bit high but they offer great value for your dollar but not your low cost Walmart type provider.

      Advice to Management

      Sometimes it's good to take the time to acknowledge the individuals that got you there.

      Pros

      State of the art technology and building, nice perks for some

      Cons

      Very much an "us-them" mentality between shop/warehouse and office. Senior management is not accountable to anyone, nor do they hold some of their reports accountable. Bad managers not held accountable for the way they run departments. So much waste in resources and money. Could give better raises to the deserving by doing an audit to see how much is wasted; paper, materials, etc. Again, no accountability with spending...

      Advice to Management

      Accountability, for one, get bad managers out of position or get them some training before they become a liability to the company.

      Pros

      Lots of talent under one roof

      Cons

      It doesn't matter if you do your job well, or how much work you put in - you can get fired for someone just not liking you. It's all about the politics and your image.

      Advice to Management

      Invest in training - you set a lot of your employees up to fail
