    Avantages

    They apparently do have hiring-side clients and will call you with opportunities. but...

    Inconvénients

    I am a very senior designer in a field that is in demand. When I told them my rate, a rate I was currently making with a current client that I got through another recruiter than Creative Circle, Creative Circle was only willing to offer me 50% of that rate! When I asked how they could expect a person with such experience to accept that, the Creative Circle recruiter said to me "well you will be out of work soon [my contract was ending soon] so wouldn't you rather make something than nothing?" - I was disgusted and insulted. When I pointed out that I am running a business and that my rate is my rate and to accept anything lower would be detrimental to my business, the recruiter said "well I disagree and think you should take the offer". I laughed at them and wished them well.

    Might be good for people hard up for work or just starting out but I would stay away from Creative Circle like a professional plague.

    Conseils à la direction

    Treat your talent with respect and pay them market or higher rates otherwise close up shop and find a job yourself so you aren't mistreating people with your insane business model.

    J'ai travaillé chez Creative Circle en Contrat Permanent (Moins d'un an)

    Avantages

    Nice people to deal with at the start.
    Great location.

    Inconvénients

    They push for freelance/contract work as that can get companies coming back.
    They say they know a lot of companies that they can set you up with, but they don't.
    They sell to employers freelance and contract and the benefits of it. It's killing the market for full time workers.

    Conseils à la direction

    You need to stop pushing freelance or contract work.

    Avantages

    The freelance jobs are with cool agencies. The duration of their freelance and contract gigs vary from days to weeks to months, even fulltime. Say no when you aren't interested and they will still consider you for all others. The recruiters are to the point, and great to deal with. They put personality and humour into it, while delivering all the details about a role. I've been working with them for many months.

    Inconvénients

    They might tack on a larger markup than other agencies, but hey, they call me often with new opportunies that I wouldn't find on my own.

    Conseils à la direction

    It would be nice if we could accumulate a paid day off or two, the more time we freelance through them.

    Je travaille chez Creative Circle à temps partiel (Plus d'un an)

    Avantages

    The freelance positions they locate are with professional agencies. This may lead to better things. They handle marketing, payment and overall communications well. They have found me more work in past year at a higher rate than I was able to myself, which is obviously a good thing.

    Inconvénients

    Agencies see you as an expensive fix for a problem they are not staffed up for. This is because, as a client said to me, "CC adds a pretty good fee on top of your hourly rate". Be prepared to face pressure on this.

    Conseils à la direction

    Adding some benefits to the employment contract would be nice and would win my loyalty for the long-term.

    Avantages

    Lots of contacts and contracts if you are willing to feed these cats.

    Inconvénients

    Pure rip off. Hire senior developers at junior salary. Not honest about the % they take. No technical knowledge. Unethical.

    Conseils à la direction

    You can only scam so many people before it comes back to bite you.

    Avantages

    I have been in some terribly managed creative teams. For once, I feel motivated - focused - and supported. This company knows how to value their employees because they DO realize how hard everyone works on a daily basis.

    Inconvénients

    Not any so far, have been with the company almost four months.

    Conseils à la direction

    Management works just as much as the team does, so that sets such a great example. Keep up the work!

    Over the past 10 years I have worked alongside the most dedicated, hard-working, passionate and intelligent people. The compensation is more than fair, the goals are attainable and they treat us very well.

    Inconvénients

    You have to work hard and you can't please everyone.

    Avantages

    Great people/team, supportive training culture, nice payscale

    Inconvénients

    Like most sales jobs, it's all about dealing with rejection and trying to achieve a large volume of activity on a daily basis. This requires you to hit every day head on at full speed. Over time this can definitely lead to burn out - especially when you've had a streak of bad luck. This is not a job (or industry) for everyone, but if you're built for it you'll love it.

    Avantages

    The office location was nice, parking was paid for, healthcare on day one, and a robust training program for new employees

    Inconvénients

    Company has an insanely high turnover rate-for a reason. Account executives spend all day cold calling people who 9/10 times have no use for their services, and try to convince these people to let Creative Circle be a middle man in their operations. I urge you to seek employment elsewhere, whether you’re a freelancer, or someone seeking a position within Creative Circle.
