      Pros

      Learned tons of new things and experience of a life time. Benefits are great (when they apply) Never would've gotten to experience anything like it coming from a small town with only small scale corporate AV available.

      Cons

      - Salary isn't equal to the amount of work done. (Will work you to death whenever possible to save a couple bucks) - Health insurance is very selective (Had a medical emergency caused by equipment at no fault of my own and medical didn't cover it) - Favoritism can be found rampant at various shows at the benefit or detriment of everyone - Worker morale is very volatile but generally negative due to neglect from management and upper management - Quality of recruited workers are mediocre at best. Lots of severely inexperienced new hires with very questionable skill sets. - Turn over in depts can be very high - Departments can be severaly understaffed with management believing workforce is optimal (expect no days off and 4x's the work with no additional pay)

      Pros

      Travel and hot woman. Cool apratusses interesting dumb people to work with.

      Cons

      They do not value current employees, especially the longer you work for Feld the less they appreciate you as a performer. Upper management could care less about anyone who is not a head.

      Great place to learn, full of top-notch talent

      Pros

      It is a fantastic place to learn. It is fast-paced but really sets you up for success if you have the right attitude and you are willing to put in the hours. The benefits are great - you'll be hard pressed to find a company with better health insurance. *Most* of the managers and directors are very skilled in their fields. The office is unparalleled- it is decorated with antiques from the old Ringling Bros. Circus days, Monster Jam truck tires, Supercross bikes, etc - and has a giant historical "wardrobe room" with thousands of costumes ranging from early circus days to Disney On Ice and Disney Live! shows.

      Cons

      You will be expected to operate at 100 mph, every single day - that often includes weekends. Work/life balance is not prioritized. This is a very "yes-man" environment, so while upper management may sometimes hear you out, you will only rise to the top or get promoted if you avoid even politely challenging a demand or an idea. The top executives are secretive and closed-minded. You'll hear major company news breaking as soon as the press does. Promotions or raises are very, very rare. Minimum of 5-6 years before that's even a consideration. Raises are extremely small, and bonuses are also nothing to write home about (if you qualify for a bonus, which most positions do not). This is a "lifetime" job environment, so expect to hunker down if you're looking to climb.

      Pros

      Easy to get into, get to travel the world. Don't need to much experience.

      Cons

      Upper management doesn't connect well with the work force. Will work you as much as they can. Not to much room for advancement

      Pros

      great company to work for. free tickets good family environment not a pro -- most people never heard of Feld, nor what they do. Only until you mention their properties does it then click. It's not as impressive on the resume as you might think.

      Cons

      IT Management is in sore need of replacement from the CTO on down. Micromanagement to the extreme CTO is non-technical to the point of being a Luddite frantic work pace -- everything is a critical emergency Ego-driven upper management ineffective middle-management -- most upper management just sit in their positions slow to embrace new technologies outsources EVERYTHING advertised as one position, but duties were for a much lower-level position. as a result, career will stagnate. IT has lost control of their department. nobody else in the company comes to them for big projects -- outsources everything no project planning whatsoever no path for advancement unless you want to become a traveling tour manager

      Pros

      Career opportunities if you are a fighter. The company promotes within, but only if you inquire about opportunities and if you know about them.

      Cons

      No career plans for any employees or positions. Dedicated employees are constantly looking for opportunities to improve, but the company does not invest to develop internal talent. Mid and upper management control instead of delegate.

      Pros

      Great brands to work on. Many different departments.

      Cons

      Although is a large company there isn't much room for growth. Upper management sit in their positions while everyone else does the hard work. Not much praise for good work done. Many levels of approval needed all the time so there is not much free creative thinking. Low paying company.
