Bad IT department & culture, there were social cliques - like High School !

I hope this company survives this crisis because it's the best job I've ever had and can only hope for more. I met very awesome people and I was inspired everyday.

I was on a contract basis working for them fulltime, with a very low wage and zero benefits. I was officially a freelancer but expected me to act like a full-time employee, coming in to the office every day religiously from 9 to 5 sharp. They take forever to pay out their contractors, sometimes they took even 4 months. And this year they have not paid me one single cent for all the hard work I have done for them from January until March 2020. They owe me over 10.000$ and still have not received the money because they went bankrupt. Chances are I will never see that money again.
Pros
None.
Cons
Exploit their workers.

As an usher I was able to watch the show each time. Sometimes it was very stressful depending on where u were placed because of late arrivals. You had to know when it was ok to seat people and not interrupt the show. I got to interact with the artists and it was very thrilling no matter the amount of times I saw it. There was a lot of cleaning to do. We would clean before and after the show all the garbage and confetti left.
Pros
Amazing show.
Cons
Can be dealing with stressful situations ie bad guests, bad seating...

Cirque gave its employee flexible work schedule when needed. There are times periods that where more stressful and demanding than other but it is doable. I have learn a lot at Cirque. A boarder aspects of payroll, new applications, more experience organizing time and data, communication I think i would still be there today if its wasn't for Covid-19 Cirque provided activities/events to its employees (BBQs, parties, social events) which was wonderful. I worked with wonderful co-workers and they will be missed

Even though the company was known for intense entertainment, the office team was very conservative. The overall culture was to answer NO to new ideas and out of the box ideas to help promote the product.

Everyday is different on a touring show. Not your typical day to work. Having toured for 3 years has been the most amazing time of my life, being able to work and travel.

Fast pace work and onsite troubleshooting and repair. No time to loose, the show must go on!! I have the good skill to work in an environment like that, I have been doing this for 30 years. I handle stress very well and do not panic.
