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

2 monitors at workstation. May not seem like a big deal, but makes things so much easier

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.

    I worked at Circus World Displays as a contractor

    Pros

    The corporate culture is great at CWD. Everyone that I met and had the chance to work with during my time at CWD was great and extremely helpful. The company in general implements many initiates to promote team building experiences and events/company gathering during and outside of scheduled work hours.

    I feel like managers and supervisors have a lot of confidence in their employees and give them freedom to do and complete their work at their own pace which is great. Micro-management definitely isn't a problem within the company.

    Cons

    High turnaround of employees can impede business operations
    work/life balance could improve, especially with many company's recently moving to more initiatives supporting flexible hours, working from home, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Flexible work hours could be beneficial and more communication between departments and management.

    I have been working at Circus World Displays full-time

    Pros

    A great place to work if you are interested in a challenging and fast paced work environment. CWD is a growth based comapny so you are always learning new things and they are open to new ways of achieving their goals. Pay, focus on goals and cool people to work with.

    Cons

    It’s hard for the company to find solid people, as Niagara Falls doesn’t have the workforce we need.

    Advice to Management

    Cut some of the smaller time wastes like smaller goals and focus on the big ones all out.
